In English, the E makes the AID sound. You don't say LEMONAD when you see LEMONADE do you? It's the same with RADEON. RADE ON.
You don't say FAD when you see FADE do you?
I could go into Sesame Street mode by dressing up as a carpet and slide the letters across a brick wall, if that would make it easier for you to understand
couldnt agree more with the above. rade-on
plus being the most tech savvy one around this little town i have dictated everyone here to say rade-on! muahahahahh! we all say it that way!
Yeah, but you don't say SESS-AIM when you see SESAME do you? Gotcha
Well done! The blind leading the blind, that's what we like to see. And did you know that when everyone thought the world was flat, it actually was? [/sarcasm]
Ah, I see you spotted my deliberate mistake. Well done
this post was gonna be a simple ""
however, i'm kinda suspecting that it really was a deliberate mistake as you added the word 'sesame' in your edit... either that or you're kinda dumb
someones taking this a little too seriously.
You say pot8to...
All depends on what day of the week it is, rad e on somedays and raid on others.
We should ask ati
I say Ray-Dee-On. A couple of my mates say Ray-Don though.
Nvidia = I say En-Vidi-A
Asus = I say Ase-us (like base, but ase, and "us" like "oos" not "us" as in "there are lots of us") Confusing
I've always wondered:
A) How you pronounce Abit? Is it like ah-bit or A-bit (Saying the A as if you're spelling the letter A as opposed to it sounding like rabbit)?
Also, when you lot say the Radeon model numbers, e.g 9600/9800, do you say the entire number, e.g "nine thousand eight hundred pro" or "nine eight oh oh pro" or "ninety eight hundred pro" or "nine eight hundred pro" or what?
ninety eight hundred
I think the important thing about pronunciation is separating the cyllables, and when that is done we have:
Rade on (raid on)
Ni vi da (nuh vee duh) kinda odd spelling...
a bit (it's "Abit" not "A-bit")
And as far as 9800 goes, the proper way is of course "nine thousand eight hundred" but what most people will say is "nintey eight hundred".
At least, thats what I remember from grade school...
Dutch style: Rah (remember The RAH Band?) - day - on.
Radeon = Rad-i-on
Asus = Ay-sahus(like, "thats a bit SUSS[odd]"
NVidia = En-vid-i-a
Pure gaming pleasure, that's how I say Radeon
its nvidia not nivida so that kind of makes it pronounced en-vid-ee-a
i pronounce it radeon ray-de-on, i was at a big lan party in which ati was a sponsor, and all the ati guys said ray-de-on. the party was great, asus, abit, nvidia, dfi and tons of other manufacturers were there also.
Its Rad - e - on
No questions thats the right answer right there. Stop discussing
Rad-e-on sounds stupid.
I've noticed a lot of people are very weird about pronouncing nVidia. (en-vid-ee-ah)
This is the way it's pronounced on splash screens for recent games like Tron 2.0
