Nvidia goes bi-annual barmy
New AGPs to roll every six months - are they mad?
As my nan used to say, you won't get anywhere if you haven't got balls - and Nvidia has got them by the golf bag. CEO Jen-Hsun Huang promises to introduce a new and more advanced graphics processor every six months in his company's quest for worldwide PC domination. The wisdom of setting such an easily checkable roadmap will only be decided by time (just the provision of snappy, dynamic names will mean a dedicated division), but Huang didn't stop there. Not content with giving his special projects manager a heart attack, he then went on to liken Nvidia with Intel, comparing the two companies' business models. It's all very well to copy your bigger brother's actions, but let's hope Huang hasn't forgotten that essential childhood lesson: sooner or later big bro will crack, turn around and punch you. So don't come running to us, Jen-Hsun. ®
