    320x240 pixel graphics displays being considered 'high res'.
    Ummm he started in 2001? 240p was never high res in 2001
    Only things from around that time I can think of using 320x240 was the early touch screen mobile phones

    Yep he's a marketer

    "Chris Hook now working for Intel" is the next article I expect to see!

    I wonder what will change now he has left.

    if Nvidia had purchased ATI the current price of a GTX 1080 would be? $10,000. ~Titan V @ $30,000.

    Someone from marketing has left and the position given to someone else from marketing, yawn...bit of a slow news day on the technology front?
