This marriage of convenience will be announced on Thursday and Via will tell the world that Nvidia prepares a small board based on an Nforce-like chipset for its Nano CPU.

Nvidia's new platform will play HD content far better than Intel, but just like Intel it is doomed to suck in gaming; but to be fair to Nvidia, it will get a bit faster than rather rusty old 945GC.
