Nvidia aware of Intel as a tough competitor

Written by Fuad Abazovic

Geforce VP confirms
It is funny that Nvidia and Intel, at least some parts of it beleive that when it comes to graphics, Nvidia and Intel should cooperate together. It was interesting to hear Mr. Ujesh Desai vice president of GeForce desktop business at Nvidia that “You have to be aware of your competition”.

One Nvidia chap, whom we won't name, has told us once, “Of course we are scared of Intel”, which kind of fits the story.

Ujesh believes that Intel is a great company that makes the world’s best CPUs just as much as Nvidia makes the best GPUs. This is at least what Ujesh claims, and while we are sure that many might disagree, we are just reporting the words of Nvidia's Geforce VP.

At the same time Ujesh did remind us that Nvidia works very closely with Intel on Optimus Technology and that Intel likes the fact that Nvidia can save power and make Intel’s notebooks run longer, even with a discrete GPU.

Since we heard similar vibes from some senior people at Intel, we believe that the proverbial can of whoopass might actually get out of the picture so these two companies can start closer together to fight its mutual enemy, Jerry Sanders' legacy company that goes by the name AMD.

Work together... I'd like to see that soap opera unfolding.

If you put two self-centered corps to work together, some balls might get cut off.

Nvidia makes the best gpus? What?! So much for modesty.
Nvidia's chips save power.... Ati's gpus had that feature before

Personally I'd like to see Intel and Nvidia work together. See the nForce chipsets return and lots of other things. I guess both Intel and Nvidia could be more competitive against AMD that way.
And we all know who wins when there's competition. :)

Please tell us! When knowing who's involved, I just can't figure out who's the winner of of this.

The consumers always win when there's competition! :P

Yeah, right up until the time AMD goes under.

Then comes the horror...

Oh yea. I used to be a Intel / Nvidia fanboy back in the 6800 Ultra days. My dreams came true and both Intel and Nvidia ended up on top, to make matters worse, AMD / ATI had horrible products with the r600 and phenom.
That started the most boring, over priced and slowest developing time I've known for the high end sector.
How many g80 rebrands did they shove down our throats and how much money took Intel out of our pockets for its Core 2s' ?
I love ATI's current state and I want to see AMD kick some ass with Bulldozer. In other words, I want a price war!

Stated like a true former-fanboy.

Graphics wise, Intel aren't to be feared, I could make a better GPU than them using some toilet roll and jar of pickles!
