Someone needs to start a 3rd GPU company that names their video cards with much cooler and easier to identify names like "Gabbs Galaxy class Dominator 2000" :P

There used to be many gpu companies. They all got bought out for various reasons. Mostly because they didn't keep up with the times or didn't correctly predict the path that video games would develop in.

or...perhaps the reasons they didn't survive is because they didn't have cool graphic card names? :P
