     Nvidia reduction: XFX & EVGA reimburse

    Following the price reductions of the GeForce GTX 260 and 280, XFX and EVGA have put into place a program to reimburse the price difference for those that paid more for their cards or they are offering credit for the purchase of other products. While a number of criteria have to be fulfilled for the manufacturer (time and country of purchase, authorized distributor, limited time period, etc.) and we do not always get back the entire difference, we can only praise such initiatives that enable recuperating/saving up to $150 for a GTX 280.

    At a time when manufacturers are often offering the same cards on the very high end segment, some have perfectly understood that they can set themselves apart from rivals other than by just adding a more elaborate logo. Let’s hope some of the other much bigger companies will follow their example so that buyers in the Old World are able to benefit from the same privileges as those in the U.S.



     Intel Q2 results

    Intel has published its financial results for the 2nd quarter of 2008. The figures below are in billions of dollars.


    While revenue was slightly lower compared to the previous quarter, it increased 9% compared to the same period last year enabling the Santa Clara giant to speak of a record 2nd quarter. In terms of profits, everything seems to be going well.

    The creator of x86 attributes these good performances to a new record in the number of processor and notebook chipset units delivered. There were also more deliveries of CPU units compared to the previous quarter and higher seasonal averages enabling gross profits of 55.4%. this could have been even better but, according to Intel, an increase in the demand for entry level PC laptops caused a drop in average microprocessor sales prices, all platforms included.

    The geographical distribution of income remained very stable. The Asia-Pacific zone represented 51% of revenue, North America was at 21%, Europe 18% and Japan 10%. Overall, we can see that on the mobile segment, sales of components continued to increase while the "Digital Enterprise Group", which includes the server and desktop segments, showed a sequential decrease of 3%.
