Who would ever have thought..... In response to AMD/ATI having shown a few signs recently that they're actually working on a combined CPU/GPU processor, NVIDIA appear to be working on a similar tech according to the Inquirer. Most would've found it easy to assume Intel would play a role here, but apparently NVIDIA are preparing to go it alone!


WE MANAGED to confirm that Nvidia has started to develop a CPU.

Charlie wrote about the interesting implications of Nvidia's good fortune in acquiring some folk from Stexar, a company that was known for its X86 marchitectural expertise.

And now we hear that development is underway at Nvidia's just-announced Portland, Oregon, Design Center, where chip folk are beaving away on 45 nanometre designs.
