ATI calls PlayStation 3 GPU unrefined

NVIDIA is preparing the GPU for Sony's PlayStation 3 while ATI has made the GPU for the Xbox 360 console and also Nintendo's upcoming Revolution.

ATTI's European Developers Relation Manager, Richard Huddy, likes throwing with mud and claims ATI's Xbox 360 GPU is better than NVIDIA's GPU for the PS3.
Huddy recalls how, "as [he] understands it," Sony went to Nvidia very late in the development cycle and they delivered was a modified 7800GTX - which "is a pretty powerful piece of hardware," he notes, "but not very elegant...Xbox 360 technology is likely to outperform PlayStation 3 technology by a pretty healthy margin in the long run." Remember, though, this is coming from a competitor of the PS3's GPU maker, so he's just a tad biased - and since Nvidia is probably never going to be critical of its own product, don't expect them to side with ATI on this matter.
