Nvidia showed many of its partners that even with a low end CPU you will gain a lot if you simply plug in a better graphics card.Source: FUD Zilla
Nvidia doesn’t plan to make a CPU, but AMD and Intel will both soon have graphics, they already have a solid chipset business, 30+ years of CPU experience and this is something that Nvidia cannot compete with.
Intel is preaching that OEMs and System integrators should use its platform and Centrino is one of the most successful things that Intel ever did. AMD also has this platform concept and by the time, there won’t be much space in the chipset business for Nvidia as Intel and AMD simply don’t want it around.
