Nvidia: The Sky Isn't Falling

On the eve of AMD's GPU 14 announcement PC Power Play talks to Nvidia's Tony Tamasi.

 

Tamasi: It’s no longer possible for a console to be a better or more capable graphics platform than the PC. I’ll tell you why. In the past, certainly with the first PlayStation and PS2, in that era there weren’t really good graphics on the PC. Around the time of the PS2 is when 3D really started coming to the PC, but before that time 3D was the domain of Silicon Graphics and other 3D workstations. Sony, Sega or Nintendo could invest in bringing 3D graphics to a consumer platform. In fact, the PS2 was faster than a PC.

Now I agree that consoles will never be faster, but to say the PS2 was faster than the PC is laughable.  The PS2 came out in 1999.  I had my 3dfx based Diamond Monster 3D in 2006 when it came out.  Voodoo 2 came in 98, SLI meant my 2 Pure 3D cards blew everything else away.  There was a reason why my friends wanted to play Tomb Raider on my PC, and not on console.

AMD GPU Share Up, Nvidia Down Q2

JPR reports that AMD's GPU share was up in Q2 of this year while Nvidia was down.  AMD won the battle 21.9% to 16.1% as the gap widened.  Intel's share of their lackluster integrated video that plagues so many overpriced and underpforming Macbooks also went up at Nvdia's expense.  The I think JPR, I will always think Banf "Cananada."
