I am not going to say anything wrong with being a fanboy, it is was it is nothing more nothing less. I am not really a fan boy of anything. I do like seeing ATI doing some good things. I bought an AMD on my previous notebook. I think any company sitting to comfortable on top for too long hurts us consumers.
Being a fanboy in the Desktop world is easier to be. In the notebook world because of the lack of modular construction and swappable with GPU's in particular makes the suffering that much more.
And while cool to like Nvidia. Their lack of innovation has put them where they are now. Behind the curve. They kept tweaking aging technology to maximize performance at reduced cost to sell their products at the most profitable. Trust me not in the consumers best interest.
ATI developed and implemented newer technology earlier at a development cost disadvantage and initial performance disadvantage. Seriously affecting their profitability. They stuck with it and I hope they benefit from having stuck with it. And make some profit. It was in the better interest of the consumer.
When Nividia catches up. Which I know they will they will because of better products. And that gets back to what I find to be more important than any specific brand, and that is what is in the best interest of the consumer.
Intel screwed the pooch with P4 and the entire idea of Net Burst. AMD took advantage of. Intel came back stronger than ever and the consumers benefited. Lack of competition leads to lack of innovation. ATI or Nividia, Intel or AMD would not be as good as they are with out the other.
Maybe I am an ATI fanboy. I do like seeing them do well. That said I will not buy an inferior product at a higher price because of brand. Maybe that is not what a fanboy is? Maybe that is just stupid?
Amorget my fanboy treatsise was not directed at you it was more of general musings and thoughts. And yea I guess it is not a treatsise as not even much of an essay.
I am trying to raise the level of posts as he who shall not be named (thinks he's invisible
) was critical saying NBF has a very high standards.
