NVIDIA abandons VIA Nano platform

Posted on Friday, January 16 2009 @ 00:27:39 CET by


FUD Zilla heard whispers that NVIDIA has lost interest in creating a platform based on the VIA Nano processor because there's no industry acceptance of the low-power chip. That's why NVIDIA decided to debut its Ion platform with the Intel Atom processor.
Intel is sort of ok with Ion, as it probably has its own ways for preventing Nvidia’s massive success, but with help of Ion, Intel can even gain by selling even more Atoms. Nvidia is interested in the chipset part, as it still cannot make CPUs.

VIA is on its own again, but this company always finds ways to survive in this cruel world ruled by Intel. Ion, Nvidia’s chipset for Atom can play decent HD video, something that Intel’s 945G cannot, but we are not sure how much interest is there for playing such content on a 10-inch display to begin with.
