By the end of Q1 2006, NVIDIA will present its new operational plans after taking over chipset firm ULi, DigiTimes reports.

NVIDIA says ULi will continue to develop southbridge and single-chip solutions. The two companies are aiming to integrate their R&D capabilities and co-develop NVIDIA branded products.
ULi built up its brand awareness while bundling its M1573 southbridge chip with ATI’s RC410 northbridge, thanks to a long-term tight supply of Intel’s 865- and 915-series chipsets, sources at Taiwan motherboard makers indicated. Shipments of ATI’s PCI Express chipsets have at the same time climbed significantly, indicated the sources, noting that the most likely reason for Nvidia acquiring ULi was to weaken ATI’s recent expansion in the global chipset market.
ATI on the other hand is planning to ship its new SB600 southbridge by Q2 22006.
