Nvidia quitting the chipset business, denies claims

Posted August 2, 2008 by admin in CPU & Motherboards

If you visit DigiTimes right now, you’ll see a catchy headline at the top of the page: “Nvidia to quit chipset business.” Citing sources at motherboard firms, the Taiwanese site alleges that Nvidia will stop offering chipsets and re-assign its MCP team to the GPU business. Regarding the motive for the change, the site explains, “Nvidia called a meeting earlier this week with its motherboard partners to gauge support for it continuing to develop chipsets in the future. . . . The motherboard makers’ response? Silence.”

Puzzled, we asked Nvidia Platform Products PR chief Bryan Del Rizzo to weigh in. Del Rizzo’s response came swiftly and left little open for interpretation:

1. The story on Digitimes is completely groundless. We have no intention of getting out of the chipset business.
