Nvidia done with chipsets

Written by Nedim Hadzic
nvidia

Tegra SoC is the way to go
This Thursday, Nvidia’s CEO officially announced that the company is no longer building chipsets, with the company focusing on SoCs. We can't say we are surprised though, as Nvidia hasn't had the best of times lately and the company merged chipset and SoC teams earlier this year.

In the words of Jensen, the decision comes as a result of chipset business not growing this year, Nvidia’s failure to expand the sales of chipsets and because the company is keen on perfecting its Tegra systems on a chip.

This means that Nvidia will stop with its orders for necessary chips and production is no more, but certain chipsets will stay for a while more. Namely, Nvidia’s AMD chipset offer still stands strong and the MCP89 is set to stay for a while as well.

NVIDIA can't do much of anything while they await a court battle with Intel over it's chipset license agreement. If the court rules in NVIDIA's favor Intel will have to cough up a lot of lost revenue to NVIDIA

... and nothing of value was lost, imagine Fermi built into motherboards.

Well they've done that already I think..........some of the greatest Chefs in the world use those as stoves :)

nVidia's AMD chipsets suck.
Compared to AMD's chipsets, nVidia's are in the stone age.
Hope they could at least license SLI to AMD.

I for one am glad that NV won't be releasing any more chipsets that corrupt hard drives.

This is probably more important for high-end laptops and whatnot.

NVIDIA made pretty good chipsets such as those found in the 750i motherboards as an example. However, they weren't great overclockers. The problem here is that Intel has no competition for the Intel CPU chipset market so prices can be higher than they should be

Nvidia doesnt do chipets anymore cuz Intel nd AMD doesnt wanna give them license , not becouse theres no money in them.

I bet they would like to do chipsets, but why when x-58 can do SLI and Crossfire?

Nvidia can't do anything now in chipset because Intel from one side refusing to give them license to make chipset for Core i series and on the other hand they don't want to make chipset for their rival in Graphics AMD !

nice fermi flame there,
but seriously..

there is a LOT lost..

this means there is basically just 1 solution for intel cpu based mobo's
and only one left for amd..

do you think intel and amd would have worked on their chipsets so extensively if nvidida was never a threat to them?

now its basically, if you want amd, you have to get an amd mobo, if you want intel, you have to get an intel mobo..
not much options are left now..

im not saying nvidia was very strong with their chipsets, but some healthy competition is better than leaving intel and amd with their monopoly positions on the mobo market
