    Default Nvidia renames old stuff again

    renaming, a game for the whole family. So much fun to rip off costumers:

    At least they will work fully featured in linux upon launch.

    Besides these cards at least add 10.1 support. Same thing ATI did when they renamed the Radeon 2xxx series to the Radeon 3xxx series.

    that's one of the reasons why I stopped buying nvidia cards:

    they're not honest to their customers

    and guess how they do energy-savings / energy efficient cards ?
    they down-clock cards and sell them as green editions; adaptive up- and/or down-clocking on non-green cards often is broken or simply not implemented

    the only "joker" they're having right now is still their somewhat better binary blob but that will change soon

    I'm glad I bought and ATI/AMD card earlier this year

    Actually they do better then their ATI brethren at least until running in full bore premium performance mode. ATI's cards have been brutal on non premium modes for power consumption.

    but for how long until the bumps break and the chips fall off?

    Those chips are not even the same series.

    Back to power consumption:

    ugh - tomshardware...

    and nvidia's insurer - as DM - claim, that not only integrated parts are defective - desktop parts just go on a bit longer.

    they have some nice stuff there Michael - without cutting into your benchmarking business

    some more on bumpgate, Nvidia's g300 and when it will maybe become reality. TSMC+40nm. Why is it so hard to get a HD4770 ....

    The Magny Courts article posted a view days ago was the best I have seen so far.
