[CNET]Intel and Nvidia Licensing standoff - Page 7

post #61 of 85
wow, I havent thought of it that way. I doubt nvidia would go bankrupt though in that scenario. They would just be massively humbled.

There once was a spokesman from Nvidia who said that the cpu did nothing at all but render the blue screen of death. If that's the case who cares what CPU gets released by intel. It doesn't do anything anyway.

Everyone else has said some pretty stupid things with loosely supported evidence. Thought I'd give it a try.

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.
i was talking GFX.

Here are my scenarios:

A) Nvidia caves and grants Intel SLI licensing:

- (nvidia) makes more money off of licensing SLI.
- makes more money off increased GPU sales, since SLI capable platforms are more widespread.
- continues producing sub par chipsets and eventually gets out of the desktop chipset arena.
- (if not the above) is forced to produce a competent chipset.


B) Nvidia continues to withhold SLI licensing tech:

- (nvidia)makes Intel very angry(though I'm sure Tegra isn't helping either).
- sees no immediate impact on chipset or GPU sales.
- most likely continues to produce sup par chipsets.

IMHO if Nvidia plays it's cards right and forces Intel into an expensive licensing deal this could work out to their advantage. Licensing IP is pure profit and an increase in SLI capable platforms could potentially lead to more GPU sales.

Hmmm... Sounds like a company with 75% of the CPU market is not going to "fail". OEMs would equip their PCs with whatever graphics cards are supported by Intel CPUs.

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.
SOMEONE will buy nVidia's intellectual property So, #5 and #6 aren't necessarily correct.

i don't get why you all hate nvidia chipsets so much? the 680i chipsets were pretty bad, but the 780i and 790i chipsets overclock about the same as p35/x38...

Right after it overheats and or corrupts your RAID array.

lol so intel wiill have ati crossfire but not nvidia

amd will have xfire and sli

So the ultimate gaming comp will either have:

Best cpu (Intel) second best gpu (currently)
or
Second best cpu (currently) best gpu
