Sources tell TechEye that a little bit like Tweedledum and Tweedledee, ATI-AMD and NVIDIA have an agreement that however viciously they fight, they won’t let it ever get to litigation.
We hear that one company’s set of spinners wanted to go after the other company’s set of PR merchants over driver enhancements on cards that increased the performance of the gizmo.
The PR company in question was about to start a court case when word came from on high that such a project was out of the question.
The reason being that both AMD-ATI and NVIDIA have a so-called “gentleman’s agreement” that allows each to enter battle without either getting hurt.
Very much like Tweedledee and Tweedledum in Alice in Wonderland, who regularly embarked on so-called “battles” where nobody actually got hurt.
Sheesh. Perhaps they’re going to eat a turkey together today, it being Thanksgiving and that.
