Interesting... The HP sv7 uses nvidia GPUs, and now it turns out SGI
is using ATi GPUs for their Onyx4...


In fact, utilisation of off-the-shelf graphics technology by a company who practically invented today?s 3D graphics standards means that consumer graphics processors have ultimate power and endless scalability nowadays.

A cute example of what the home-user toy GPUs can do realtime: http://www2.ati.com/misc/demos/ATI-9700-car-Movie-v1.0.mpg

Oh yes, it's about this thread: http://www.asmcommunity.net/board/index.php?topic=16128

Well doesn't that undermine everything that that idiot hutch tried to sell? :)
So why did Bruce get banned and is hutch still allowed on, when clearly, Bruce was not talking nonsense, while hutch was, and apparently hutch had to resort to a flamewar to cover up his nonsense, which he then blamed on Bruce, via his 'influence peddling' skills?
Nice going, oh Nazi-board.
