A couple of days ago it was revealed that NVIDIA isn't working on a chipset for Intel's Lynnfield processors, and today FUD Zilla reports NVIDIA won't make a new AMD chipset either. NVIDIA's Drew Henry claims it's not economically viable because of the low marketshare of AMD.
Mr. Drew Henry has explained us that since AMD's CPU business is doing so badly and since its market shrunk so much, it is simply not economically viable for Nvidia to continue developing chipsets for AMD. They simply cannot make enough money.
Nvidia will continue making ION chipsets and Ion 2 is well under development as there is a lot of financial sense for Nvidia as they can make good buck on this chipset. The only obstacle is Intel who doesn’t want this chipset around, but Nvidia has decided to fight Intel on this one, and has HP and Lenovo supporting ION in its netbooks.
