There may be trouble ahead
Is the end nigh for AMD and NVIDIA?
Jon Peddie, head of definitive graphics industry analyst Jon Peddie Research, told HEXUS.tv at CeBIT that when Intel launches its discrete graphics offering - Larrabee - in 2009 it will be bad news for NVIDIA and AMD.
'Intel will take market share from NVIDIA, AMD and S3 just because it showed up,' he said. 'If the part is any good then the news [for the incumbent graphics players] gets even worse.'
