The partnership would imply that Nvidia decreases product developments for the AMD platform and devotes more efforts to IGP (integrated graphics processor) chipsets for the Intel platform, the sources said.
Of course, the most popular chipset for AMD processors is the nForce. Could that be about to change? That would be one disadvantage to Intel calling the shots for nVidia. Then again, that may be ATI's chance to shine with the Radeon XPress.
