ATi and Nvidia: The hall of shame@ 2007/06/27
If anything, the reduction of combatants from many (Matrox, S3, Rendition, 3DLabs, 3dfx, PowerVR) to just two (Nvidia and ATi) has made the scrap even dirtier. As well as inspiring each company to create its best products, the war has panicked each into producing its worst. Normally, we celebrate the former - hot new chips, cool new features - but on this occasion, we focus our attention on the latter: poorly conceived products, vapourware and benchtest bungles that beggar belief. Welcome to the ATi and Nvidia hall of shame.
