LOL very true....they're really screwed (in terms of their chipset sales) either way.

BTW Intel's chipset are vastly superior to NVidias........I've seen some of the craziest issues with them on forums and press releases, from data corruption to good old fashioned chipset death
I owned an NForce chipset back in the day, and that will be the ONLY NVidia chipset I will even own.

Look, most people don't have SLI so if Intel doesn't support it, then not a big loss. It may actually end up being a big gain, since EVERYONE AND THEIR MOTHER will be buying Intel boards to place their brand spanking new Nehalem chips on. It's sort of a Nehalem board monopoly. I think that Intel is trying to make Nvidia play nice in order to squash AMD. And even though I tend to side with Nvidia more than I side with Intel, I can acknowledge that Nvidia is being a greedy ***** in this situation.

If Intel doesn't get SLI, then Intel probably ends up making more money in the short term, but less money in the long term since enthusiasts--and everyone else eventually--will side with AMD. But Nvidia loses out in the short and long term because now they don't get to make any new boards.

yep, it's more like intel want the best boards to take the money from AMD, rather than take the mobo money away from nvidia.

It is simple...intel doesnt like a picture where its major competitor covers more parts of the market than it,and AMD currently does...
Not going to happen. A buy-out of the #2 graphics chips maker (nVidia) by the #1 graphics chips maker (Intel... yes, that onboard stuff DOES sell ) will not pass Anti-trust regulations, since combined they'll controll about 75% of the market

You know, This paired with the Nehalem No Overclocking makes me want to go AMD.

They can cooperate with the CPU division of AMD.
nVidia and AMD are rivals but in the GPU market, not he CPU. nVidia still makes AMD chipsets. The problem is that AMD top doesn't stand a chance against Intel's top.

I watched P35 vs 680i benchmarks, and decided to go P35 because of the higher FSB. Performance was close to 680i, in few cases 680i was little faster. And recently there was a errata in this chipset that in overclock there was data corruption or something. I'm glad I got the P35.

Seeing as that is just rumor and hearsay, not to mention that if it's true it doesn't concern the actual platform worth bothering with (LGA1366 is more than just 'extreme edition'), I don't think you should draw too many conclusions yet.

If Intel gets SLI then the following will happen:

1. No-one would ever buy an nForce board again. Thus putting nvidia out of the motehrboard market.

2. The money Nvidia would be losing will cause them to raise the price on all of their certified hardware and more importantly their graphics cards.

3. As the nvidia cards would be so expensive, everyone will start turning to ATI cards for the better prices.

4. Nvidia go into liquidation and has to declare themselves bankrupt.

5. Intel would then have paid for SLI lisencing that will see them no huge increase in profits as people would start turning to ATI cards.

6. Everyone is a loser on this one.
