nvidia should buy up via, there new moble proc out runs intel atom.

also, the added revanew from via's new parent company, if nvidia buys, this would give it more money to work with, futher slamming the door on intels face.

that could be the end of intels atom bliss.

AMD has ATI, Intel has Larrabee, nVidia will have only a GPU market share.  It's just not good business to sit on one product--even other hardware vendors are consolidating, buying each other out so they can broaden and dtrengthen their product line. 

However, I would not necessarily rule nVidia from developing a CPU.  It's a smart business move IF (and it's a big if) they have the production means to develop something truly competitive.  Barring that, what is to keep them from trying to expand into memory?  Or some other aspects of computer hardware that would give them a better market share.  Even if Larrabee fails to do anything on the enthusiast end, it is certain to hurt nVidia on the low-end market, possibly even the lower half of the mainstream market as well.

Lower your shields, and prepare to be assimilated. We will add your biological and technological distinctivness to our own. Resistance is futile.

With the way nVidia has been talking about how the CPU is useless and that the GPU is the real workhorse in the PC, I'm sure that they're secretly working on a CPU type of product.

It's any borg contact really... But it is a fitting statement regarding nVidia and the CPU
