There were some wild rumours going around this month regarding NVIDIA's business but the company denied those during their latest conference call.

Sites like The Inquirer rumoured the faulty GPU issue would be much larger than the $200 million writeoff announced a couple of weeks ago but the graphics firm made clear that isn't the case. NVIDIA took a $196 million charge against cost of revenue this quarter and states the problem is limited to a relatively small amount of previous-generation notebook GPUs. They don't expect any more writedowns related to this issue.

The firm also denied they're quitting the chipset business. In fact, they expect that their MCP business will grow.
