Default nVidia Quitting Chipset Business... not likely

The mobo makers may have their own gripes, too, but even if they didn't, if their major customers are peeved at nVidia, they can hardly be too enthused about them, either. If HP doesn't want, say, high-end motherboards based on nForce 7-series chipsets, and they're the major customer for one, the mobo maker is pretty likely to stop trying to make them.

But none of this means nVidia had this single meeting, then decided to toss in the towel. That would be almost as absurd as the head of AMD reading some of my articles, then announcing, "We're not going to make CPUs any more." The only way any corporation makes a major decision like that in a flash is if their products are slaughtering people left and right (and maybe not even then).

The controversy over whether or not nVidia will continue to make motherboard chipsets continues. Unfortunately, at least some of those claiming nVidia chipsets are terminal tend to foam orally while doing so.

interesting bit regarding NVIDIA Intel chipsets:

Quote:
nVidia would need a QPI license to make Bloomfield motherboards. Since Lynnfield and Havendale CPUs do not use QPI, nVidia doesn't need a QPI license to make mobos for those Nehalems, and that's apparently all that they're going to make.
