 I'm so glad Loyd is writing for MaxPC. More podcasting too.

E.T. podcast was a favorite.

 

 Hey, Me Tooo. Belittling PC tech, and talking up consoles will win no freinds here.

If you read the artical, it's about GPU's being used for more than fragging North Koreans.

This tech is basicly here, whats needed is more apps tooo use the power available to high power desktops.

I think it won't matter what Nvidia comes out with next. With
console games and internet streaming of games on PC there is no need
for High end video cards. The 3D video card market will fall. IMHO"

But he forgets that  console and internet streaming both still need 3D
power, consoles have moved away from custom 3D to the big boys who get it right
the first time in the PC arena, and those server farms do need to have many a
video card to even stream the nice sexy visual services right to your PC, but
remember there are other factors at play that have yet to catch up with
videocairds, and there is still 10 year old tech in mobo's that haven’t even
seen the light of day of updating in a PC gamers world. 

 

Sometimes I just wanna see what's next, and watch ppl play catch-up with
this tech.

What you fail to realize in your own world of catastrophic ignorance is that Nvidia is venturing into a new frontier.  Furthermore the "3D video card market" as you stated is what is powering that thing you call a console and those internet streaming games.

And just so your well informed, the intent of this new GPU is to provide powerful parallel computing, which will give the opportunity for scientists, engineers, and so forth the ability to create more realistic results in a much more affordale package.  This by the way leads me to my next point to inform that world of ignorance that you live in.

This GPU also gives programmers more ability to do things with physics, like the physics in video games, i.e. how things blow-up, how your character shoots his or her weapon.  That sort of thing.

So I will remind you MeTo (which should be MeToo, remember that thing called grammar) that this is a place for PC enthusiasts, not console enthusiasts.  So go find some lame console based magazine and stay in your world of ignorant bliss. Otherwise, take an honest look, and read about computers and realize what you are talking about  before you submit a stupid comment like that.

By the way it should be Undeniably PC. (remember that thing called grammar) I think you need to read this site more often as it has a lot more to offer than just Maximum PC stuff. You seem to be ignorant to the fact. I will enjoy it when a top of the line video card is $200. Let's get backon topic the fastest single 3D video card on the market is the ATI 5870 for all those PC enthusiast. I love it when the red team spanks the green team.

I am continually impressed with Loyd Case's new articles on MaximumPc.com. He really delves into many facets of computer hardware companies and offers a glimpse into the inner-workings of some of today's greatest technology manufacturers. He also provided an extremely tech-savvy voice to the No BS podcast last week.

I think it will be very interesting to see what Nvidia comes up with in the next year as they respond to ATI's kick-ass 5870 card. Like Loyd says, there definitely is a shift in the way that Nvidia is being managed. I wonder how this will affect the products that they churn out.

When do you guys think that we will see the GT300 series cards?

I've been reading Loyd Case's articles since he used to write for PC Gaming World back in the early 90s.  In fact, his "hard stuff" section on hardware was the only reason I kept reading that publication after its de-evolution into juvenile imbecility.  (and I say that as a former subscriber to PCXL)  Thanks, Loyd, for your great columns.  Keep them coming.
