Nvidia Continues Anti-Intel Assault

December 21, 2009

Nvidia’s Intel’s Insides series of cartoons having a few quick jabs at Intel continues this week, with the graphics-centric company releasing more cartoons for a little festive cheer at Intel’s expense.

Nvidia has been railing against Intel for quite some time now, but things really picked up last Summer, when the company needed Intel’s Atom processor line to power its then-upcoming ION GPU solution.
