ATI is a great competitor, Nvidia says

Attack of humility hits graphics giant

A WOMAN CALLED Marvine D Buckett, who is Nvidia's Chief Financial Officer has lavished praise on her company's chief competitor.

In a recent Nvidia investor conference call, the chief beancounter made a most interesting statement about ATI's integrated graphics.

She said:" You can integrate graphics in chipsets, Intel does that very well so do we (Nvidia) so does ATI".

Ex-AMD employee Marvine, who joined Nvidia just a year ago, said that ATI is a "great competitor".

Usually high officials do not make these kind of statements and don't even mention the names of their competitors but we guess that the relatively new Nvidia CFO doesn't mind.

The Cold War between ATI and Graphzilla is obviously undergoing global warming, possibly courtesy of Vulcan.

Perhaps ATI will consider hiring Marvine since she is so enthusiastic about its business. Who knows. She might even have Gamecube and Radeon at home! µ
