Nvidia to get 80 percent of Calpella

Nvidia
mobile division has scored a big and important win. It still has to announce its new 40nm generation of mobile products and ATI’s still has to announce any serious design wins with its RV740 40nm mobile chip. So far, Asus is the only one to announce a system based on this chip.

Since Intel’s Calpella platform based on the new quad-core mobile chip codenamed Clarksfield and a mobile version of P55 chipset that doesn’t have any IGP integrated core, Intel will have to reach for Nvidia’s or ATI’s discrete chips to fill the void.

Since these quad-core notebooks should be aiming at upper part of the market, people will want to get some decent graphics and we’ve heard that Nvidia claims almost 80 percent of all Calpella design wins, and if this turns out to be true, we will see numerous notebooks with Nvidia chips inside.

This would meant that Nvidia’s mobile market share should dramatically increase as of Q3 2009, and since the platform is being prepared right now, the shipment of mobile 40nm chips in Q2 2009 should be notable.
