NVIDIA has completed the acquisition of ULi, DigiTimes reports:
ATI had also tried to acquire ULi, but the deal fell through as the two companies differed on the price, paving the way for Nvidia to take up ULi, the sources said, noting that ULi started volume production of its latest southbridge chip, the ULi M1575, in the second half of last year. ATI had bundled most of its northbridge chips with ULi’s southbridge chips.

Following completion of the acquisition, Nvidia will discontinue marketing ULi-branded products and instead will market them under the Nvidia name, according to sources close to Nvidia Taiwan.
In the mean time, it's believed ATI is already developing its own southbridge.
