Get a Mac, suggests NVIDIA CEO

Intel is suing NVIDIA in an effort to get them dropped from chipset licensing on Nehalem boards.  NVIDIA has filed countersuit against Intel.  NVIDIA has even gone as far as to sponsor cartoons lampooning Intel.

NVIDIA particularly enraged Intel when it convinced Apple to dump Intel's integrated graphics from its product lineup in favor of NVIDIA designs.   Intel vows it will make a return to the Mac graphics platform, stating, "Graphics is a competitive market and we compete for all new business. "

Apple's decision to opt for NVIDIA is certainly being rewarded with loads of love from the graphics giant.  NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang, speaking in Dubai at the American University of Dubai (AUD), showed a lot of affection for the Cupertino company, bragging that his household was "all Apple" according to Shuffle Gazine.

He brags, "Apple uses the best technology for their [computers]. Apple says to their customers: if you buy a computer from us you can be sure we have selected the best technology inside for you. That is their promise to consumers. Their promise to consumers isn’t we’ve selected the best technology for you with the exception of what Intel allows us to use. That’s not their promise. And that’s why Apple uses the best technology where they want whenever they want. And that’s why I’m all Apple! At home it’s just Macs everywhere. It’s NVIDIA’s technology in all of them but I use Macs. My son has two Macs, my daughter has a Mac, there’s an extra Mac just in case and my wife has a Mac. It’s just Mac, Mac, Mac! Because I know it’s got the best stuff inside."

He says Intel's model of standardization doesn't work for all OEMs.  He continued, adding that OEMs that thrive on a luxury image, like Apple, need differentiated technology to support their brands.

Aside from its obvious implications in the Mac vs. PC debate, Mr. Huang's comments throw support behind a platform that doesn't typically cater to modern 3D gaming -- OS X.  With its upcoming Fermi GPUs, NVIDIA is primarily targeting the GPU computing market, despite the fact that most of its current dedicated GPU business comes from computer gaming enthusiasts.

This dirty son of a #@*@!...

If it hadn't been for gamers during the 1990s, Nvidia wouldn't even exist today. And gamers use Windows. No serious gamer is using Linux, Mac OS X, or any other operating system. No serious game developer is developing for any other operating system.

After all this time, with gamers pushing Nvidia to new heights by raving over their video cards, thus putting into the public's mind that an Nvidia card is what you needed to do any kind of gaming on, this son of a bitch backstabs the entire gaming community by asking everyone to switch to Macs? For what? So they can pay $2000 for a machine you can build yourself for $1000, or even less? So they can play games seven years after they've been released on the consoles and Windows machines?

Well Mr. Nvidia CEO, you can kindly go to hell and take your graphics cards with you. From here on out, I'll buy AMD & ATI for my gaming rigs. Have fun making shitty integrated graphics for every new iMac, MacBook, iPhone, iPod, and iTablet Apple craps out. Meanwhile, ATI can not alienate any one aspect of their userbase and hopefully get into some new Blackberries, Palms, and Android phones, along with other companies' devices.

Ungrateful asshole.
