    I think nVidia is doing a fine enough job by themselves. Rollo is just helping them along, and doing his job perfectly.

I'm part of a noble bunch making sure the close to bankrupt AMD guys get a fair shake, and no one disparages their products or speaks well of their competitors."

    Sound about right? I've had the displeasure of being accosted by little bullies like you from all over the world, angry I get some free parts, angry I have info you don't, angry I prefer NVIDIA and don't help the underdog.

    Pretty sad.

    I guess beyond that I completed two bachelors degrees, have a decent career going as a team lead at a software company, have been married 15 years to a another degreed professional, have two properties, one son, and about 5 hobbies I enjoy every week of the year.

    Where I'm from, that is called "having a life". Got anything going on better than that where you're in a position to tell me I have "no life" chief?

    Rollo, AMD isnt near being bankrupt at all as they have funding from the major oil companies iirc. Also, is AMD really the under dog? Not really since in performance and price they are kicking Nvidia out the door!.

    Not bad amount of sales for how long its been on sale and poor supply, they could do better however.

    I here by declare the "Church of NVIDIA the Utterly Indifferent" open for business on Earth. Join a new religion today. Help unite the planet after the Rollo invasion.

    NVIDIA the utterly indifferent doesn't care what you say, think or do.

    <BOLD> Members of the church of NVIDIA the utterly indifferent do not receive free software and/or hardware from NVIDIA from time to time to facilitate the evaluation of NVIDIA products. <BOLD>

    NVIDIA the utterly indifferent does not reward or punish you. Nothing you can say, think or do will impress of upset NVIDIA the utterly indifferent. NVIDIA the utterly indifferent does not care how many hobbies you have, how many cars you own, how many houses you own, how much money you earn or whether you live life to the full. As of today NVIDIA doesn't give a flying bleep about anything and the new policy is for all eternity. NVIDIA have a new business model with utterly indifferent PR and utterly indifferent marketing.

    Humanity will finally make its own destiny, without manipulation. People who never bought NVIDIA before start buying into the brand. NVIDIA has more successful than ever before.

    However.... it turns out ATI existed millennia earlier and by manipulating human history ensured that primitive humans evolved to create a civilization capable of producing the DX11 part. ATI are powered by the Universal Will to Become, or UWTB, the "prime mover" which makes graphics cards wish to appear out of nothingness.

    Unfortunately everyone dies of a hallucination secretly implanted on forums by a robot called Salo. The hallucination is but a single dot, which on Salo's home world means "nothing". Salo never owned up to delivered the wrong message on the wrong forums or indeed visiting the wrong planet.
