* NVidia: 128MB is now bare minimum

WhatPC has word that NVidia thinks customers no longer want video boards with less than 128 MB in them:

"People do not want 64MB any more," he said. "We all know how much the market changes from one day to the next. 128MB is it at the moment."

But the comments caused amusement among other graphics card vendors.

"128MB might be the limit in their minds, but there will always be a place for cards with smaller memory, Asia in particular," said Adrian Thompson, global marketing director at Sapphire Technology. "We are still selling plenty of 8MB cards. The demand is still there."
I'm not sure that 128 MB is the bare minimum yet, but give it another 2-3 years tops; I can still remember when 8 MB was hot stuff.
