AMD, according to reliable sources, is preparing some shock treatment for Nvidia on the graphics front later this year.
But the same sources reckon that it will be earlier rather than later, pushing Nvidia to the limits. We’d say that Nvidia is a little like Intel in that it performs better when it’s under pressure rather than AMD, which always seems to start misfiring when things don’t go exactly right.
The word is the AMD strategy is something to do with codename Thunder. But don’t be surprised if Nvidia has something up its corporate sleevies too. Because we suspect it has. ♣
