    This was one of the main factors in pushing the Dow back near 10K this morning.

    On a more serious note. CPU or was it Maximum PC did a piece on how Intel 'encouraged' the bundling of their products when approaching OEM computer/laptop assemblers etc. Competing for market share is healthy, but offering incentives to delay or stall rival Advanced Micro Devices products is alittle bit dicey. Poor AMD--the most brilliant designers, but somehow problems in execution of business.

    Intel had bad moments when athlon xp/64 were good and p4/d were not so good, so I guess they don't want to risk nothing again :nutkick:

    Good Point TARTAROS. Nvidia is still not too comfortable with the moment of dominance enjoyed by the AMD ATI Radeon 4870x2. Nvidia has CUDA now, so competition is good. I know that ATI supposedly uses a narrower bandwidth with GDDR5 type memory while Nvidio uses wider bandwidth with sub-DDR5. But I think the Invidia GTX 285 has GDDR5 memory now. I will never ort out the bandwidth v.s. GDDR type debate on graphics cards. I'm a 'new arrival'. Not in a science-fiction Alien Nation sense. Best Wishes
