    Hostility between ATi and NVIDIA staff starts to become physical

    Late last night eyewitnesses saw months of increasingly ill blood between core personnel from ATi and NVIDIA, erupt into what seemed set to become a physical confrontation.

    Come and have a go if you think you're hard enough!

    Oooh, "alcohol was involved". The fatal phrase!

    Did they dance fight? Did Maria/Juliet go home with her family or the ATI bad-boy?

    Not the first time I've seen fisticuffs at an event like that, it's usually down to too much alcohol and the competitive environment they're in, and things just get out of hand..

    Of course, I'm sure that us caring sharing HEXUS types would have taken any of the distressed females under our collective wing to look after them
