I've discovered this over at The Tech Report just a short time ago. A rumour has surfaced regarding Apple's next-gen iPod, according to this article at EEtimes the next iPod's graphics engine will feed off an NVIDIA graphics chip!

SAN JOSE, Calif. - Nvidia Corp. has apparently won a major design win for Apple Computer Inc.'s next-generation video iPod product line - at the expense of Broadcom Corp., according to an analyst.

Apple's current video iPod line is said to use an MP3 processor from PortalPlayer Inc. and a multimedia chip from Broadcom. The chip designs have been up for grabs for the next-generation video iPod, which has been delayed and due out in the first half of 2007.
