So no more ION? I guess I have no reason to stick with intel anymore.

If Nvidia really wanted to it could get into the CPU/APU business and compete with a really good dynamic part which could lead right back to making their own chipsets for their own part. To stick it to Intel even harder, make the die fit an AM3+ socket. A three way between Intel, AMD and Nvidia could drive a muchly needed price war.

Sounds like a nice idea but I doubt AMD would like that. Most likely they would sue Nvidia.

If Nvidia wants to get into the x86 game it will have to create its own platform. But why would it want to do that? Much more money to be made in the mobile sphere.

Scared off of a large buisiness oppertunity because of intels displeasure  of it. What kind of a buisiness runs from buisiness just because someone else doent like it? Something stinks here.

I am sure it was more than just words. For Nvidia to make chipsets for an Intel platform it obviously needs the cooperation of intel. Nvidia can't make chipsets if intel decides not to cooperate.

Man, Intel is messed up. More of a good reason to side with AMD.

You said that right. I know Intel chips are superior in the floating point, multithread and memory bandwidth areas but I am and still remain an AMD guy. Up until recently I always stayed with Nvidia graphics cards but on my latest build I went with an AMD Radeon and paired it with the 1100T 6 core and my system is beautiful which makes me one happy customer. Take that in your smug face Intel.

BTW: I could give a shit less about benchmarks in this or that. As long as my system is fast and responsive (which it is) I am happy.

Thank you! Too many people pay too much attention to benchmark stats that are impercievable in the first place.

manufacteres use figures to make us cough up our hard earn cash.... i have a simple gaming pc Amd Phenom 11 quad core 2.4 ghz and a 460 gtx with 4gb ddr3 cant find a game i cant play on highest options yet except crysis 2 latest patch which most people do not have a system to play it anyway... this system cost me under 600.00 and that FPS stuff is overrated

I have a system I'm working on current that I'm having to use a stand in processor an AMD Phenom IIx2 555. I also have an intel system based on the socket 1156 i7-875K, and before that I had a system based on the socket 1366 i7-920. And while some tasks certainly are different, for the most part I can't tell the difference. Perhaps I remember when computers were really slow.
