Nvidia still interested in netbooks

By on
Shortly after abandoning it plans to develop a netbook platform alongside VIA, graphics maker Nvidia has revealed it is still interested in the booming sector – but it’s taking a cautious approach. This according to the company’s CFO Marv Burkett, who said it's a matter of how the market evolves before we can see Nvidia integrated graphics chips in these devices.

In other words, they are taking a wait and see approach. This shouldn’t come as a surprise, particularly when even Intel – whose chips can be found on the vast majority of netbooks – has stated that the market didn't develop the way they expected. If Nvidia did enter into the netbook market, the company’s most likely move would be to provide integrated chipsets with better graphics than those offered now, though perhaps they’ll go with a system-on-chip approach similar to what they are planning for the MID market next year with Tegra.
