used QPI chipset for Bloomfield CPUs and for Lynnfield and Arrandale &
Clarkdale it uses DMI chipsets. Nvidia’s head of chipset division, General

said that environment created by Intel was not healthy for their business
model and therefore they have decided not to go after that product. This is
definitely a change of plans as Nvidia was telling us last year roughly at the
same time that they will go and launch a DMI chipset but not QPI.
will continue to license the SLI for many motherboards including P55 and some
future ones but they won’t be making any DMI chipset with an integrated IGP. It
looks like this is the end of the high end and mainstream chipset from Nvidia
for Intel CPUs.
plans are fine and after Ion one comes the Ion 2 simply as this chipset uses a
different P4 bus. This is something Nvidia is confident about and they want to
continue doing it.
