SEEN this yet?
We had some inklings something like this was going to happen. It’s a case of unlikely bedfellows.
There was never any likelihood that Nvidia would buy Via, as Charlie D points out – that was Digitimes froth, of course. They did chat about licences and that a year or two back, but that wasn’t a goer.
Intel might resort to the legal stick, Charlie reckons – but if it does, it’s not entirely clear how that would work out. Larrabee and discrete graphic cards could alter the legal picture for Nvidia, we guess. Will be interested to see how this all works out. ♣
