The colour, the standard under which a fandom can rally. ATI is red. Nvidia is green. AMD is green too. How hard is it?
[QUOTE=BmB;24484648]The colour, the standard under which a fandom can rally. ATI is red. Nvidia is green. AMD is green too. How hard is it?[/QUOTE] I don't think anyone will mistake an AMD card as an nVidia card if it's green...
[QUOTE=BmB;24484648]The colour, the standard under which a fandom can rally. ATI is red. Nvidia is green. AMD is green too. How hard is it?[/QUOTE] By standard you are meaning like flag or something? Unless you mean the cards are colord green. Or red. I wouldn't know. I haven't seen a video card. Well, only pictures, and nowadays they are typically full of plastic casings.
Yes. The colour, it is associated with the brand. And ATI cards are in fact printed on red circuit boards. They also usually have red coolers, the most extreme of which was the X1950 cooler: [img]http://www.simhq.com/_technology2/images/technology_095a_001.jpg[/img] Or the red detail on the new "batmobile" coolers. Nvidia has a similar thing going on with black and green. It's just tied to the brand like a sort of logo. No offense but you're really acting thick. It's not hard to understand. ATI uses red to promote themselves, Nvidia uses green.
:sigh: My first ever gaming computer had an ATi card, I shall mourn this loss even though I am an nVidia user now.
I bet people will call it ATi even when their name is AMD.

It may have been replaced by a Radeon 9600, but my old rig still has an ATI card, Even though my main rig uses NVidia.
Everyone is rating my post dumb and yet no one states why.

He means the companies [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corporate_identity]corporate identity[/url]. The colour-schemes they use are part of this. It's not hard to understand. nVidia is Green + Black ATi is Red. AMD is green.
Why oh why AMD, oh well atleast it's still the same trustworthy company we can count on.
ATI Radeon just flows much better than AMD Radeon.
Why is everyone getting so upset over a name change, all this will mean is that a sticker on your graphics card/case is going to have 2 letters different, and you will all still think of them as ATi cards apart from when you buy one you will have to search "AMD" [QUOTE=Pixel Heart;24473408]My first ATi card was an AGP RageII Pro, AGP2x,[B] 8MB[/B]. It barely ran Half-Life 1 (non-steam, pre-source, GOTY edition). Then I replaced it with a $100 GeForce 5200FX AGP 8x, [B]128MB[/B]. HL1 ran great, and I could even run the brand new (at the time) UT2003 full settings without lag. That ATi experience really ruined any chances of me ever owning an ATi card ever again.[/QUOTE] Are you actually dumb or just trying? Thats like saying my ATi 9200 runs my games crap, but this nvidia 8600gt runs them fine! That means that nvidia is a better company! Seriously where is your logic? +1 more vote for the worst thread in the PCHW&SW forum.

Iunno, most people I know with ATI cards nowadays are wanting NVidias.

[QUOTE=TheTiger;24472503]Hmm i wonder will they add similar system tuneup tool into Catalyst control center that Nvidia control center + nTune has. AMD Catalyst control center tuneup would work only with AMD chipsets like Nvidia Control Cetner + nTune works only with nForce chipsets. Hmm[/QUOTE] Both of those work fine with my AMD chipset - it's SLI that doesn't.
It's funny how my 5870 is blue.. I have no idea why. The chip itself that is.

Dunt car.. nvidia and ati/amd should work together really. They should build the one card to rule them all in the pits of mordor! 1GB GDDR5 256-bit 1GHz Core clock 1800MHz Shader clock Sell it for $250 It would be perfect and if you needed even more power you could just put another in sli. Make it quad sli capable with amazing scaling and you have the perfect card.

[QUOTE=johan_sm;24492988]Only 1GB? But I want to play games on high res[/QUOTE] Toss in another card for $250 and you got 2GB. Perfect card in all ways... Then they could sell you a card made with gold instead of copper clocked at 2ghz on everything with 4GB GDDR5 for $2000
And with only one company to buy from they could have the price at whatever they wanted because they know that they are the only people to get graphics cards from so you would be forced to pay extreme amounts. This is why having 2 graphics card companies is good, they both can fight eachother for the best price/performance.
The name change isn't a problem, considering the cards are still the same apart from the slightly different names. Isn't something to whine about really.
[QUOTE=starpoo90;24490573]You could have just posted a picture and I would have gotten it. I did look for pictures of their cards and then I got it. You confirmed it.[/QUOTE] Then you don't get it. It's not the cards physically that is the reason for the colour, it is the colour that is the reason they are that way physically.
[QUOTE=Alcapwne;24489633]ATI Radeon just flows much better than AMD Radeon.[/QUOTE] Probably because we are used to it, wait a few years and AMD will sound natural.
AMD is associated with failure and bankruptcy. Before acquiring ATI they were posting red numbers to the extreme, they haven't made a worthwhile processor in years and even before that it took the Phenom II to even make them competitive. If anything rename AMD to ATI. Who from day one has been associated with awesome products and competitive business.

AMD was actually outperforming Intel for much of the Pentium 4 era, and even before that, they were making solid, low-cost processors. I don't know about their economic history, but they've always had a good rep in my book, actually better than ATI after I had to RMA a card twice in a row.
