Thu, November 05 2009 | 5:17PM | PermaLink Feedback?
According to a report on EEtimes, rumours have once again surfaced that Nvidia Corp. may enter the x86-based microprocessor market. It is known that NVIDIA is fighting against AMD and Intel, both have processor and graphics line while NVIDIA only has a graphics line which could be eroded if more processors integrate graphics paired up with x86processors. Rumours were again circling the industry that NVIDIA would acquire VIA but industry experts feel that NVIDIA would be on their own than acquiring other companies. It is believed that Nvidia has hired former Transmeta staff extensively, and that instruction code "morphing" requirements have declined as more x86 instructions have come off of patent coverage,' said analyst Doug Freedman of Broadpoint AmTech. On the other hand, NVIDIA has halted chipset developments for next generation Intel processors featuring DMI bus. It has since moved into ARM development for mobile devices.
