"The team that brought you GPU and the Geforce 4"

hehe, guess the pr/marketing department doesn't realize that GPU's were around long before they put one on the Geforce 1. That's kinda like when Gore said he invented the internet.

They never mentioned that Geforce 4 and the GPU released on the same time. Why can't the engineers on Nvidia have created the GPU? :)

Wow. That was a crappy clip.
Though that 1/4 sec. of actual onscreen graphics did look a little interesting.

well, i didn't actualy watch the trailer(stupid 56k connection.

but, since nvidia picked up all the sgi programmers, they are basicaly the ones who created openGL, an dpossible worked on the first gpu's.. but my hardware history, is certainly sketchy at the least.. but i can see how it is possible

While nvidia might not have actually invented the first GPU, I think they were the first to give the acronym "GPU" to the graphics processor... Seems like I remember hearing all the arguments about that back when the GeForce 256 came out. I agree, after obtaining most of the graphics engineers from SGI they definitely have some bragging rights. As long as ATI et al are around to give some competition things will only get better for the consumer.
