A job listing from NVIDIA reveals the graphics chip designer is looking for someone to join a team to "help produce the next revolutionary Apple products", to "work in partnership with Apple" and to write code that will "define and shape the future" of graphics-related software on Macs.
The last couple of Mac generations from Apple did not feature NVIDIA GPUs and Bloomberg speculates the posting (as well as two more Apple-related job postings) suggest NVIDIA GPUs will make a return in next-generation Apple products.
There are three current job listings on Nvidia’s database referencing Apple, with the latest one appearing last week. All three job listings for the Santa Clara, California-based company cite software development for the Mac, while one specifies an Nvidia Mac graphics driver team, pointing to the potential of Nvidia chipsets returning to the Apple computers. Nvidia and Apple both declined to comment.
