A massive splash of press releases from graphics chip firm Nvidia at the current WinHEC 2000 conference in New Orleans has revealed the extent of the firm's egregious assault on the graphics market. It has secured a raft of design wins with top PC OEMs -- including the Dell Corporation -- to use its GeForce2 GTS graphic processing units (GPUs) in its products. And that is not the least of it, according to Nvidia. Gateway, HP, Compaq, Creative Labs, MicronPC, Elsa and a whole load of other PC manufacturers committed to the platform. Even NEC joined in the Nvidia party. The anti-aliasing abilities of Nvidia helps the firm's chip technology grow in the market, a company statement added. The GPU (not the GPO,, OK?) offers shading and a whole heap of other features which can be found on Nvidia's Web site. Will Intel be interested in buying Nvidia? We should cocoa. It still has a heap of issues with all sorts of graphics firms. ®
