Q: You make it sound so unrefined!
A: [Laughs.] Well, yeah, but the tragedy is that it is unrefined. There's a lot brute force in there - I'd be the last person to admit it, but the truth is that the 7800GTX is a pretty powerful piece of hardware, but it's not very elegant, it hasn't got the kind of: 'Well, how do we design this to be the best possible console we can build for this money?' Instead it's been put together at the end of quite a complicated process. We have two very different design processes. If Microsoft had come to us and said: 'All right, what are we going to do about this graphics chip, then? Let's sign the contract and let's go', but then we'd got two thirds through and they'd said: 'Look, you guys aren't going to deliver - now what are you going to do?' and then walked away from us, they would have ended up with a design very much like the PS3 in some essential characteristics - it would have had to use bought-in components. And our GPUs instead are custom-designed components, and that's one of the fundamental reasons why I think Xbox 360 technology is likely to outperform PlayStation 3 technology by a pretty healthy margin in the long run.

Pfffffft!!  Who cares about ATI when you got the Emotion Engine?  Or was that the last kooky name for the PS2?  Is it the Cell thingy now?

Of course ATI is going to challenge the playstation 3, just like Nvidia will challenge the Xbox 360. They both want to believe their graphics cards are the best, I'll wait for the ps3 reviews on sites like tomshardware and sharkyextreme to let me know if it's "unrefined" in an unbiased manner.
