[xbit] Intel and Nvidia Still in Talks Regarding Next-Generation Processor Bus...

post #1 of 33
Thread Starter 
Quote:
Intel Corp. and Nvidia Corp. still have not reached an agreement that would allow Nvidia to develop and sell core-logic sets compatible with Intel’s next-generation processors code-named Nehalem, which puts the future of Nvidia’s multi-GPU technology at risk.

“There is a disagreement between Intel and Nvidia as to the scope of Nvidia’s license from Intel to make chipsets compatible with Intel microprocessors. Intel is trying to resolve the disagreement privately with Nvidia and therefore we will not provide additional details. It is our hope that this dispute will be resolved amicably and that it will not impact other areas of our companies’ working relationship,†said Intel spokesman Daniel Snyder in an interview with Crave web-site.

interesting. why wouldnt Intel want SLI?
and what else DO they want?
post #3 of 33
What this all means is that Intel is holding back the new chipset technology from NVIDIA until NVIDIA coughs up the SLI licensing to Intel...

Intel wants SLI licencing, but NVIDIA is holding onto it with a death grip. I dont blame NVIDIA for this. After all, who would buy an NVIDIA chipset board if they could run SLI on an Intel chipset!

how would it mean that? unless Intel is lying...

Intel stressed that SLI allowance for Intel chipsets is not something that the chipmaker was asking for to grant Quick Path interconnect (QPI) license to Nvidia.
“We are not seeking any SLI concession from Nvidia in exchange for granting any Nehalem license rights to Nvidia,†a statement by Intel reads.

definately and i hope they release SLI to intel im tired of being forced to swallow a chipset despite its problems due to SLI being proprietary...

Then why did Intel suddenly change their 45nm Yorkfields so that they would not work with the NVIDIA boards (when the 680i was the latest)? The ES chips worked fine, then Intel changesd something on the retail and thus ended the 45nm Yorkfield support for current 600i series NVIDIA platforms at the time. They ended up delaying the 780i release just so the board's design could be reworked. IDK, I think Intel is bullying NVIDIA around on the SLI issue.

Intel denied it then too.


Keep in mind that Intel chipsets are more then capablre of running SLI, all they lack is the NVIDIA licensing. As of now, the only way Intel is able to run SLI is with an NVIDIA PCIE chip (like the Skulltrail motherboard).

i know that is what would make most sense, but IMO -no offence- its a little short sighted to think it can be the ONLY explanation when Intel specifically stated it isnt looking for SLI rights.

i know intel chipsets are capable of it, and have heard about hacks making it work.
i personally was WISHING Intel would go for SLI, but i cant really be so sure anymore now. I would rather wait and see than say it will be A or B and turns out to be C.

Nforce 3 and 4 chipsets were great, guess nvidia's gone down hill from there.

Intel's Nvidia chipset's suck anyways for the most part so w/e.

Oh I'm sure Intel has a great business sense and wants to dominate the market whenever it can. I never claimed to be short sighted enough to think this was the only reason. -no offense taken-

But when it comes to NVIDIA (its current biggest competitior in the desktop chipset market for Intel CPUs), Intel is def keeping the pressure on them.
