Nvidia is Looking Forward to Fight Intel in Court

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 9 comments

Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang is ready to do battle against Intel.

Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang is a bold leader who doesn't appear to be afraid of Intel. In fact, in a recent interview, Huang told Fortune that he's looking forward to the court date with Intel.

In fact, the CEO said that he's confident that Nvidia will prevail over Intel when things are presented before a judge. The interviewer asked Huang if the company had considered a settlement with Intel, but the CEO said that there wasn't any reason to go that route as Intel's argument for its control over the chipset business is "completely nonsense."

Check out the interview video clip here (via Engadget).

    Huang wants it to go to court and not settle, "I want a judge to see it, and determine who is right and wrong." "And I am certain it will be us(right)".

    I just purchased 278 shares ($4500) from Nvidia, ticker NVDA. This stock looks amazing and will only go up.

    Buy NVDA STOCK! I predict $24 a share by this time next year. (currently $17ish)

    This is the guy that loves apple while his bread and butter is pretty much pc cards etc.

    I don't respect the guy that much but then again, I don't personally know him to make such a comment

    Indeed. Suprisingly, for a company that has delivered products that were overpriced for the performance offered and a more than 6 months long hiatus in which they couldn't even bring anything competitive to the table, they are still strong and healthy. Because OEM's enjoy using crap like the GTS-2XX series perhaps?

    Intel vs AMD and Nvidia vs ATI are similar. One company offers the best price/performance ratio, yet doesn't make a breakthrough in the value OEM market where that is the most important requirement of a PC.

    Market and technology seem unrelated even in technology companies. Odd, isn't it?

    So basically with Fermi sucking all their cash with no real ROI in the foreseeable future, Nvidia want a slice of the Nehalem chipset pie to bring cash back in until Fermi makes money.

    Fair enough.

    Everything of any real cash value all hangs on Fermi - GeForce, Quadro and Tesla are all going to go Fermi, and without decent Fermi hardware everything will stop.

    Tegra, Ion and Optimus, however cool they may be, will not make enough money to support the company until Fermi can be fixed and profitable.

    Ion, Tegre and Optimus won't be cash cows like their graphics cards department is, but they have potential and I don't doubt they generate a steady stream of cash. Don't forget the GTS series either, it has a massive market share in big brand PC's with discrete GPU's.

    Fermi is crucial, but it's not gonna make or break the company. It has other sources of income and deep pockets...

    So he's not allowed to like Mac's because his organisation produces a graphics chip?

    Intel has too much monopoly over the chip set so in that case they could set whatever price they want. Remember S3 made good chipsets, VIA is debatable and I won't get into that because I'll get a lot of thumbs down :D , and Nvidia is debatable by some but including two of my friends and myself, we have Nvidia boards and they give us absolutely 0 problems. Sure I had a little problem getting my RAM set up but that was an extremely small problem that was resolved quickly and without any kind of band-aid fix. It runs as it is suppose to. I believe that there isn't much room to innovate over an intel chipset. All the competition really does is offset the price and promote companies such as S3, Nvidia, Via to further advance skills of technical personnel in the computer field.

    I should've got AMD stock when it was so low - I just had a feeling that the combination of strong 5000 series and poor Fermi rollout would give the red team a major stock boost.
