Intel to settle FTC case

Written by Fudzilla staff


Nvidia’s complaint pays dividend
According to Reuters, Intel is planning to settle its longstanding case with the US Federal Trade Commission.

The case itself stems from complaints filed by Nvidia, alleging that Intel advised companies to avoid Nvidia hardware and that it offered unfair bundles to vendors who chose to do so. Nvidia claims that Intel’s practices hurt sales of its ION chipset.

However, Intel is unlikely to pay any compensation to Nvidia. Instead, the settlement could resolve the companies’ dispute over chipset licensing, at least to some extent. It’s still unclear what the chipset part of the settlement would entail, but we wouldn’t hold our breath for any Nvidia PQI chipsets anytime soon.

Good news for Nvidia if they have chipset market again, it will spice up the tech world if they do so, I hope.

No. They have a tendency to introduce re-branded chipsets just as they do with their GPU line, practically charging extra for having a new name without new or improved features. I don't welcome them in the x86 arena. Let them play the tegra card, and keep them where they can do the least bit of good and keep them out of markets where they push s#it into people computers.
