NVIDIA decides to (temporarily) shut down chipset development

until legal issues are resolved with Intel

| CPU, APU & Chipsets News | Posted: Oct 8, 2009 11:48 am

It's been reported today that NVIDIA's chipset development has grinded to a halt due to continuing legal woes with Intel. All chipset development has been postponed until the legal issues have been resolved in court next year.

 

This is a pretty extreme decision given NVIDIA still has the freedom to innovate in the way of chipsets for AMD, not to mention Intel's four-year agreement with the green giant didn't cover Nehalem or the Core series of processors either.

 

"We have said that we will continue to innovate integrated solutions for Intel's FSB architecture," Sherbin told PC Magazine in an email. "We firmly believe that this market has a long healthy life ahead. But because of Intel's improper claims to customers and the market that we aren't licensed to the new DMI bus and its unfair business tactics, it is effectively impossible for us to market chipsets for future CPUs. So, until we resolve this matter in court next year, we'll postpone further chipset investments."
