Really? Just......Really? Why would you take anything the Inquirer says seriously? Everyting they say is a lie. Only dumbasses read the Inquirer. Really? MaximumPC, I expected better.

When seeing all that's been going on between NVIDIA and Intel, one starts to think that maybe there was a deal on the table. Say, Intel lets NVIDIA license x86, and in turn, NVIDIA lets Intel license SLi. It's not far-fetched. I anxiously await the day that I can build a 100% NVIDIA PC.

Why don't they just make a 128 bit cpu instead of a 32 or 64. It would be overkill, but then half of their problems would be gone.

I've seen this rumor several times over the past 5 or so years, most of them in the Inquirer or Fudzilla.  I'll believe it when I see it.

this can lead to being extremely awesome, or lead to more confusion.

 

That will mean there will be 3 platforms and variations between them.

 

Nvidia CPU, AMD motherboard, ...intel graphics?!? hah

and becomes a super monster company?  Or more likely buys a via or transmeta for the license portfolio and starts shipping super systems or its own hybrid gaming oriented platform designed to spank xbox and ps4?

AMD isn't bankrupt yet, Ph2 is nearly a return to competition, Ph3 *might* regain the performance crown.

One can only hope that AMD catches up to Intel. Personally, I'd love to see an Intel Vs. AMD war happen between the two rivals. Might drive prices down and make innovation happen faster?

isn't that what's already happening?

AMD scared Intel into dumping 7 billion into doing 32nm and cutting prices on the Core 2's

What kind of processors are in the Nvidia graphics cards? Could they be looking to create an x86 processor in order to put it in one of their desktop graphics or workstation cards?

A general prupose chip (CPU) isn't good as a chip that is specialized for the task it does (GPU for graphics)
