Intel Winning Over NVIDIA For Linux Enthusiasts
Phoronix: Intel Winning Over NVIDIA For Linux Enthusiasts
It seems that among Linux enthusiasts, Intel is gaining market-share thanks to their increasingly powerful integrated graphics backed by a fully open-source driver while NVIDIA is losing ground...
NVIDIA hurting own Linux market?
In my view, yes they do. However, I expect that they could not care less because they still have the MSW world to serve.
That they lose orders of the mentioned magnitude is one thing - they compensate it with low cost, albeit inferior, products in the short term.
That said, they might come to grips with reality that MSW is losing ground too and that more and more people are realizing that closed-source is not sustainable in the (very) long run. But of course, if NVIDIA is like any other US company, there focus is only short term - for stock holders mainly. Delivering real value to the world (sustainable growth) does not pay off in the short term.
I really liked CUDA and NVIDIA (stable speedy driver), but suspect I switch to ATI in the future. Why not Intel? Well like to use AMD CPU's until they can not compete enough with Intel anymore - might be very soon now.
