Nvidia Quitting Chipset Business?

Susan Hall

Throwing cold water on the idea that Apple is cozying up to Nvidia for its upcoming notebook products, DigiTimes reports Nvidia is quitting the chipset business altogether.


The story says the company was greeted with only silence at a meeting when it asked its motherboard partners whether it should keep making chipsets.


Nvidia has had its problems lately, with faulty graphics cards found in HP and Dell laptops. The company has said it will take a charge of $150 million to $200 million to repair and replace the cards.


After studying recent Apple goings-on, PC Perspective's Ryan Shrout concluded that there's "no doubt that come fall you will find updated MacBooks and MacBook Pros with NVIDIA chipsets and GPUs inside."


Or maybe not.
