    Nobody2Special You are clearly biased, and these ridiculously long rants of yours are proof positive, and you own NVDA shares.

    Your data is not factual, its ill conceived to boot. You dont have any real data, nothing substantative. You have hunches and blog quotes and some nonsense. You need to learn the difference between conjecture (these rumors) and reality.

  • The AMD Buyout Rumor: Why It Had To Be Fake [View article]
    So you made a wonderful prediction that it was going to be bad? How original. About every tech company had warned, including AMD.

    How about REFINANCING options? Or leverage options, for new debt? They do have a BANK.

  • Intel Keeps ARM At Bay In Micro Servers With Avoton [View article]
    I would not say it has nothing to do with instruction set, thats completely erroneous. In fact it has everything to do with instruction sets and how it handles them. Brush up on that technical tid bit.

    You always have an excuse for Intel's failures. Who cares about hardware that sucked

    As stated, performance remains to be seen, and this is not an area that Intel necessarily has much experience to leverage. So this is not likely to be a huge success first time out of the gate, and may end up like their GPU attempts.

    And if anyone can bring an ARM 64-bit to market its the guys that brought you x86 64-bit, AMD. Intel classically failed at implementing 64-bit instructions and Intel now uses AMD's implementation, and trailed AMD considerably in 64-bit processors. Just as Intel trailed in using AMD's integrated memory controller architecture, and did it so inefficiently in Nehalem.

    What the heck is a director selling shares for? Especially these measely 5000 shares, thats trading at normal people levels. Did he need to buy his new mistress a civic or something?

    Your perception of performance is fundamentally flawed, period. Mobile gaming has hit all new performance levels, they do every year, but that does not mean it can compare to a new console. Your references are to limitations of todays cosoles that are 7 years old, Oh my gosh, mobile has almost caught up in 7 years!!!! Do you really think the next consoles in 2013 will be RAM limited???? Are these guys for real? Simply put, it will take another FOREVER for mobile to catch back up with the consoles released next year.

    THIS JUST IN!!! PS4 will support 4K resolution!!!!! and contain not only an AMD APU with 4GB of RAM, but an incredible discrete GPU that probably has 2GB of its own dedicated RAM. It will take mobile 10 years to catch up.

    So what youre saying is Nvidia is unfairly manipulating the market by funding other companies to make Nvidia products work better? AMD is far superior in OpenCL/GL, and compute performance, hands down, and do just fine with all the crap that Nvidia pays people to make work better on their GPUs.

    Would Nvidia even have had Kepler out, and with low power consumption, if AMD wasnt already absolutely crushing them in the performance per watt spectrum?

  • Nvidia: Discount After Stellar Earnings Makes It A Buy [View article]
    This is only the beginning as you say, the beginning of the real competition. Nvidias mobile products have failed to impress, and now they have to compete with Intel in smartphones, and soon AMD in the tablet space anyway. Meanwhile the real smartphone guys like Qualcomm are still pumping out great products.

    The tape out is a version of the design, but it may not be final at all, because there may prove to be a lot of issues. And then another tape out to hopefully correct them. This process can easily eat up a lot of time and money youre not expecting. You can plan for the best, but prepare for the worst when doing anything new. Been there, done that, and although something may seem so simple, the dumbest thing bites you in the ass.

    They constantly extend this buyback and increase the authorized amount and do nothing, its just hype. To keep the stock price up. Now if they actually followed through, then you might see a nice return, but I doubt they actually do it.

    Well, those 401ks will be taxed on the exit, so its certainly not 0%, and could easily be 35% because of the new taxes from ObamaCare. Didnt you know, that dividend income got a huge tax rate increase so the rich people don't have low tax rates.

    And although it may be 2.4% now, if NVDA stock goes back to hype levels then that 2.4% quickly becomes more like 1.4%. Only reason the dividend is high now is the low valuation, making this a unique time to buy to both earn the dividend and potentially get the share gains. Thats if they can compete in the coming years.

    This nobodyspecial obviously has an agenda, you copy and paste this crap all over the internet? Its just nonsense, and incorrect.

    Your rants are nonsense, Nvidia doesnt even have faster products. AMD had to reduce their prices because Nvidia released similar performance at lower prices 6 months after AMD's. AMD just released the fastest server GPU to boot, along with the release on the fastest supercomputer using Opterons. So you are rambling nonsense. And if you have no interest in AMD, no shares, no shorts, why they heck do you keep posting so much in AMD articles? Just stop, you are obviously lying about something, Nvidia shareholder or Nvidia employee.

    You seem to believe you can put the same computing power in a tablet, and drive a large 1080P TV. That is what I find funny. They may play some games, but will anyone want to use them for that, when they wont come even close to the graphical power of the new consoles being released in 2013. When did the world say, we don't care about how it looks, or if it lags? The trend is quite the opposite and in a few years we will be looking at resolutions much higher than 1080P as the norm on 46" and up screens. And a tablet is going to drive them? All 2W of TDP? Not even close.

    And why do you think AMD needs ARM to compete with whatever Nvidia has next? AMD will compete using X86 in the same space, just as Intel will, although where Intel may compete better on battery life, AMD will perform better.

    And you dont understand, Intel will do whatever it takes to push someone out of the market, even if it means not making money on something, because they have a bigger piggy bank. Nvidia's plans to enter the PC space is like a declaration of war with Intel. The ridiculous settlement with Intel is funding Nvidia's R&D, so they dont show losses.
