  1. Despite a recent flurry of rumors suggesting otherwise, Nvidia's chief executive says the company is not working on an x86-compatible chip to go against Intel. Speaking after an earnings conference call, Jen-Hsun Huang said their focus is still "very, very clear" and that is to concentrate their efforts on the graphics processors field and closely related parallel computing cards like the Tesla line.

    It does seem like there is an Intel/Nvidia 'alliance' though. Just like AMD/ATI.

    This has been a big joke for awhile,, even if it were true they would never be able to produce chips in the class of Intel or Amd.
    I'll say it again NVIDIA will never make a cpu , but rather emulate x86 on a GPU.

    When is the NVIDIA version of windows running on a GPU coming out?

    Intel and NVIDIA are at each other throat right now.. and I think you'll find people with Intel cpu's run Ati just the same....

    and the reason for the AMD/ATI alliance is AMD owns ATI ... duh

    I for one own an AMD cpu and NVIDIA gpu's
