In the world of GPUs, two companies have been ruling the ball for a long time - NVIDIA и AMD/ATI. And with varying degrees of success. And now, after a break, the ATI era has begun. What automatically means trouble for partners NVIDIA.
The fact is that in the sector of hi-end video cards, the company's business is, to put it mildly, not very good. Partners mainly produce budget video cards - GeForce 210 and GeForce GT 220, whose sales do not bring too much profit. There are indeed GTX 260, GTX 285 and GTX 295, but manufacturers are constantly experiencing problems with the supply of these chips.
Thus, manufacturers whose products are aimed exclusively at the use of graphics processors NVIDIA, may come in the near future, oh, how not sweet. Analysts are even talking about the possible bankruptcy of some small but well-known companies.
