CES 2013 - This is a huge rumor right now, and I'm just the messenger so holster your weapons, please. According to FanlessTech's sources, NVIDIA could unveil their first desktop SoC (system on a chip) at CES.

NVIDIA's "Project Denver" could be announced, with multiple reference designs to be shown off tomorrow night, reports FanlessTech. I would not be surprised, and I've said it before that NVIDIA should enter the desktop CPU game in some form - it's one of the biggest markets right now.

Does this news surprise you? Excite you? Personally, it excites me - I think years from now the CPU as we know it will be vastly different, as they're already doing so now - APUs and the such. A SoC that could be built into a motherboard would only cost $20-$50 (in that range) more and could give users a huge upgrade in terms of graphics performance out-of-the-box.
