Nvidia is publicly claiming that the GPU is better and smarter than the dull CPU. CPUs are boring and Nvidia pushes the message that if you have a low-end CPU and a high-end graphics card you will play better than with high-end quad-core CPU and cheap graphics.
We agree with Nvidia, as a GPU upgrade usually means better gaming performance; but we believe that an open confrontation with Intel is the last thing that Nvidia needs at the moment. The company is arrogant, but not as arrogant as Intel, and history teaches us that Intel finds a way to penalize the bad boys.
The future just got more interesting.
