FUD Zilla reports NVIDIA is trying to convince Palit to drop its ATI Radeon HD graphics card lineup. The reason behind this is because Palit is a strategically important partner, the graphics card vendor owns almost 50 percent of the Chinese market and is doing good in other parts of the world as well. Palit sells graphics cards under its own brands, but the company also owns several other brands like Xpertvision, Galaxy and Gainward.
Palit is a strategically important partner, as it holds almost 50 percent of the Chinese market and it has a strong presence in the rest of the world. Nvidia is trying to sweeten the deal, all in order to win Palit’s hart only for itself, but Palit likes the fact that selling ATI and Nvidia at the same time, which probably brings them more money.
Nvidia’s sales from January are getting much better as the confidence in Nvidia is getting back, but we will have to see how the GTX275 will stand up against ATI's HD 4890 card, as this will be an important milestone, and the fact that RV740, ATI’s first 40nm card is just around the corner, doesn't help either.
