NVIDIA stooping to a new low

Spys at Computex? Reaally NVIDIA.....

| Posted: Jun 6, 2008 8:56 am

COMPUTEX TAIPEI 2008 It's been discovered by the team at Techarp that NVIDIA has gone to the extent of assigning a Spy to attend Computex and catch anyone out who may be leaking specific details on its upcoming lineup of GTX 200 series graphics cards.

 

NVIDIA has been extremely paranoid about their GTX 200 graphics cards. They even have a spy (a Chinese bloke wearing glasses and masquerading as a journalist) patrolling the Computex exhibition halls to enforce the NVIDIA law and catch leaks from their partners. Somehow, that also includes questioning real journalists about their sources. Well, Mr. 007, you should never threaten journalists...

 

I am in total agreeance with the following :-

 

If you ask me, all this secrecy during Computex is stupid. If NVIDIA really didn't want any news leaked about the GTX 200 cards, they should either announce the damn cards before/during Computex or don't send reference cards to their partners until after Computex.

 

First, everyone already knows about the new cards. The leaks started way before Computex. Even if additional "secret" information was leaked during Computex, it's not as if ATI can magically pull a GTX 280-killer out of their hats.

 

NVIDIA, if you're making an effort to lose industry respect, you're doing a damn good job.
