[hardocp] NVIDIA Talks Competition

We made the statement quite a while ago that NVIDIA is probably more at risk in the upcoming competitive environments than any other high profile tech company.



AMD buying ATI fully changed the way business will be done in the computer industry. AMD having massively powerful CPUs and GPUs, sometimes on the same die integrated into the system; will be a package deal that is going to carry big clout across the industry especially in the mobile space. NVIDIA does not have a partnership that gives it this selling advantage. Intel seems to have no interest in partnering tightly with NVIDIA and is moving on to hammer out its own high-end graphics division. This is quite simply going to have a hugely negative impact on NVIDIA in the long run.


Apparently, NVIDIA feels as though that is certainly a possibility according to today’s Form 10-Q, Q3 FY 2008. The quotes below are taken from the Risks Related to Our Competition section beginning on page 47.






I think we are going to very soon see a “nEW†NVIDIA in terms of how it does business. We have confirmed in North America that NVIDIA will soon be in bed with VIA Technology on the chipset front and you can count on NVIDIA leveraging Centaur’s Isaiah processor (Picture Tour here). Which quite frankly is likely to work out very well for VIA considering NVIDIA can bring a level of marketing and sales to that product that VIA just simply cannot match in-house. I am still not sure of just how much of a positive this will be for NVIDIA looking long term.

There is also more there worth reading about customer base and PlayStation 3 in the Risks Related to Our Partners and Customers starting on page 45 of the 10-K.

Not suprised considering AMD has ATI, but it doesen't look like AMD has been doing well lately, but there graphics cards have been selling alot lately and are keeping up with NVIDIA quite well. It would be cool if NVIDIA made some mini pc with the VIA processor so you could play games like MMORPG's/FPS games on the go with a awesome battery life.
