You have to pay eternal attention to developments that could become a 10X factor in your business - Andy Grove - Only the Paranoid Survive
Nvidia spinners have attempted to address the problems by inviting people in the Bay Area to contact the firm to see what the problem is - on a first come, first serve basis.
But that was over a month ago, and Nvidia still doesn't seem to have come up with an answer to people whose machines are flickering and flickering.
One reader said that the vendor that made his Nvidia card, MSI, has even stopped responding to his tech support emails. And it doesn't have an answer to the apparent problem either.
Here's where the NV News thread starts. µ
Unsafe Harbor Statement
We'd ask Nvidia ourselves, but the INQUIRER and/or any of its freelancers are apparently now banned from talking to the firm.
Our own Paul Hales, who is a freelancer not just for the INQ but for a number of other publications, was spurned at the ECTS show last week and when he tried to talk to NVDA's UK PR firm earlier this week was told: "Nvidia doesn't talk to the INQUIRER".
We'll be buggered if we understand why a spat between one freelancer (Fudo) and Nvidia should prevent other freelancers and journalists from the INQUIRER from chatting, but hey... .
As one guy from Gainward whispered to us at the ECTS show last week: "The trouble is there's one big very baby working at Nvidia and he's got very big toys and is throwing them out of his very big pram".
Who could this be? [Dear readers, don't bother answering. Ed.] Didn't stop Derek Perez from shaking hands with Fudo and myself and showing every sign of friendliness at ECTS last week. Let's hope it's not a fireable offence. µ
