* NVidia problems spreading fast

The startling high rate of NVidia GPU failures has worked its way into HP's product line as well.

This is painful for all concerned - equipment manufacturers, consumers, software companies counting on people trusting their computers.

Earlier this year, Nvidia complained it was being prevented from revealing the full scale of the problem with its GPUs by its PC partners. "The truth is our obligations to our partners limit what we can say," a Nvidia spokesman commented. "We need to leave announcements to our partners like Dell and HP."


Nvidia is currently being sued by its shareholders for allegedly covering up the problems with the faulty GPUs.
I use an NVidia GPU so that my old 3D stereo glasses work. If I didn't have that to deal with, I'd probably be jumping ship back to ATi as soon as my next round of upgrades happens.
