So to begin another drama by two companies at public war. Intel and NVIDIA are in two seperate businesses. One produces the Core i5 CPU this post was typed on, and another produces the GeForce 310m graphics processor on this exact same laptop. But instead, they’re fighting instead producing more technology to cram into laptops and sending me the review units for a month. No, instead Intel pitted their spanking-new Core i7 960 against a not-new-at-all GTX280. And they found out that NVIDIA’s not-so-new-GPU bested their Core i7 prodigy by being 2.5 times faster on average and up to 14 times faster.
Accordingly, here is NVIDIA’s gloating message:
It’s a rare day in the world of technology when a company you compete with stands up at an important conference and declares that your technology is only up to 14 times faster than theirs.
And so it goes. Nothing really was accomplished here and the meaning of this post is nearly as close as spam. **
**Of course it’s not you fools!
