AMD vs Nvidia - Employee Pay
Which of these Electronic Powerhouses Pay Their Staff Best?
Intro / Employee Dilema
Solving this Problem
The equation they have created to do this factors in both payment methods the companies are using:
(AMD) 23.75h + 500 = (Nvidia) 33.50h + 150
This equation displays both companies, and their payment rates + bonuses, and requires the "h" variable to be changed until it equalizes the equation, because at that point, both companies provied the same income. Below it (as seen in the graph), AMD provides more income, and Nvidia provides more after that point.

Numbers and Lines really could change your life!
The co-ordinate shown in the graph (35.9, 1352.6) also represents the amount of money made at that time, showing employees if they work about 36 hours at either AMD or Nvidia, they will be making close to equal money, at slightly above $1352.6. At this exact point, it wouldn't make a significant difference which company you worked at.
Overall, simply put - If you work less than 36 hours a week, your time would be better spent at AMD, and if you work more than 36 hours a week, Nvidia is a more rewarding place to work at.
