Going after more dull forms of computing
In a chat
with Hexus, AMD's Senior Manager of Developer
Relations, Richard Huddy said that Nvidia is apparently abandoning the
gaming market to some extent.
Huddy compared Nvidia's and AMD's strategy, saying: "it appears NVIDIA
is in a kind of sneering mode towards game players at the moment,"
adding that it was possible to diversify without abandoning gaming. He
went on to say that gamers are good people and "well rounded
individuals." We're not sure whether he was referring to their physique
Huddy did not deny the computing potential of GPUs, but pointed out
that AMD CPUs have present in the supercomputer market for a long time.
He said that Nvidia was "selling pure compute" and shouldn't be going
around, telling people how to use it.
