AMD also trying to cut NVIDIA out of the chipset market

Posted on Friday, April 24 2009 @ 20:04:53 CEST by

NVIDIA is in a legal battle with Intel as the latter one isn't allowing the graphics maker to develop chipsets for the Core i7 platform, and it appears NVIDIA's licensing situation with AMD is just as bad.

Beta News heard from an AMD executive that NVIDIA is not yet licensed to manufacture chipsets for AMD's next-generation processors:
Specifically, it appears Nvidia is not yet licensed to produce motherboard chipsets that support AMD's next-generation processors, reducing the likelihood for multi-GPU SLI support for AMD's "Istanbul" and future generations.

"For 2010 moving forward, the solutions coming out from AMD will be AMD and on AMD at this time," stated server business unit vice president Pat Patla. "We don't expect to see new chipsets from Nvidia or Broadcom for server implementations in 2010. But they will continue to support all existing platforms moving forward through 2010."
