Nvidia CEO dismisses VIA investment rumors
Jen-Hsun Huang, CEO and president of Nvidia, has said that the chipmaker's current relationship with Taiwan's VIA Technologies only extends to cooperation to deliver support for VIA CPUs on its upcoming Ion 2 chipset platform. Huang stated that Nvidia has no plans to make any investment in VIA, dismissing recent rumors that the two companies are in talks for a financial deal.
Huang also pointed out that several PC vendors are currently testing products using Nvidia's Ion platform with Intel's Atom CPUs, adding that Ion is expected to become one of Nvidia's major growing product lines.
Microsoft is preparing to expand DirectX with the new DirectX Compute Shader API (which will give software developers more tools to directly harness GPU resources to perform calculations beyond those related to visuals and graphics, for example physics and AI) around the same to as Windows 7 is introduced, Huang said he believes the new API will create demand for higher GPU performance and will give Nvidia advantages over its competitors.
