NVIDIA to dump VIA, cuddle up with Intel?

Posted on Tuesday, July 08 2008 @ 20:21:31 CEST by

So far NVIDIA hasn't really unveiled a lot of information about its collaboration with VIA and today DigiTimes writes the graphics card maker may dump these plans altogether as they're using the alliance is a bargaining chip to negotiate better terms with Intel.

The site writes NVIDIA is prepared to ditch the alliance with VIA if Intel allows them to make chipsets for the Atom platform:
Nvidia's MCP73 IGP chipset only supports single-channel memory and offers relatively low performance compared to current chipsets from both Nvidia and Intel making it a good fit for the Atom platform.

If Intel agrees to let Nvidia's chipset support the Atom platform, Nvidia will then terminate its alliance with VIA. This could impact Taiwan-based chipset makers VIA and Silicon Integrated System (SiS).
