NVIDIA Halting Chipset Development After All

NVIDIA Halting Chipset Development After All

By | Oct 8, 2009

It’s been about two months since NVIDIA called rumors that it was leaving the chipset business “groundless,” so perhaps it’s no big shock that PC Magazine is now reporting that the company is putting its nForce chipset line “on hiatus.” On hiatus, that is, until the company gets a few sticky legal questions out of the way, including whether or not its four-year deal with Intel covers Core i7 processors. Thus we have the delicate line that NVIDIA walks with Intel: for the time being, the two companies need each other, but they don’t have to like each other, and as the latter continues to pursue graphics integration with the CPU, manufacturers are going to be increasingly pushed towards all-Intel solutions. All this leads us to wonder if NVIDIA might decide chipsets in general are more trouble than its worth, especially considering Intel’s general attitude about them — and whether ION might be the next on the block.
