[Fud] Intel won't let Nvidia support Nehalem

post #1 of 113
Thread Starter 
Quote:
Nvidia's Director or PR, Derek Perez, has told Fudzilla that Intel actually won't let Nvidia make its Nforce, that will work with Nehalem generation of processors.

We confirmed this from Intel’s side as well as other sources, as Intel told us that there won't be an Nvidia's chipset for Nehalem. Nvidia will call this a „dispute between companies that they are trying to solve privately“ but we believe it's much more than that.
Source

Looks like there won't be SLI for most Nehalem users unless Nvidia coughs up the license. It will certainly be interesting to see the implications this has on gaming systems and ATI's next generation of cards.

wow if that actually happens, it could be terrible for NVidia.

How will all the fanboys choose between Intel and Nvidia? I think this is silly on intels part. If ATI wasn't owned by AMD, it would be different, but you are essentially handing over all the enthusiast graphics money to a direct competitor. I know intel doesn't make money from nvidia, but they have also been charged with doing quite a bit to stop AMD from making money. I wonder if this is a bluff...

Nvidia is an idiot. Intel boards are obviously going to support Crossfire if they're not gonna go SLi. It's a very bad thing because the AMD boards would support Crossfire also. Nvidia made the same mistake before, and they shouldn't make the same mistake again.

Could also be bad for Intel, as they would lose some Nvidia customers if Intel is unable to get a license to use sli.

Well I know for me it wont make in difference in any of my choices as Nvidia chipsets generally overclock poorly unless you are willing to spend $300+ on the top of the line version. If I really needed sli i would probably just get a dual card or not get sli at all (sli is a waste of money IMHO).

How hard would it be for nvidia to say make their own CPU or a GPU that acts like a CPU?

MUCH MUCH MUCH harder than you think. It would take years of planning, billions in R&D and they would still have the hurdle of trying to get Intel to hand over a x86 license.

I hate to pimp out my blog all the time, but I predicted this over a week ago.

Sad news for the world of computing. Cooperation is what brings great products, and right now, it's like everybody is trying to take a bite out of every sector. GP-GPUs, Larabee.... eh. Let's see who survives this.

That's why Nvidia is buddying up to VIA probably... Also doesn't help that Nvidia has been so ****y lately.
