I think that Nvidia can do it and succeed. They have the well known brand name and the loyal customer base that will support their production.

Perhaps Nvidia will make a manufacturing agreement with AMD. Just a possibility.

Nvidia is referred to as one entity, so singular tense would apply.  Thus "Is Nvidia developing its own CPU" is grammatically correct.  If the sentence involved more than one entity such as "Is Nvidia AND MICROSOFT developing THEIR own CPU" the word THEIR would apply, since it would imply multiple ownership.

 

It all depends if the company is being referred to as a single entity or a collective of multiple individuals.  Technically either would be correct, depending on the context being conveyed.

 

I should get paid for this.

I'm sick of seeing people complain about grammer in this posts. I'm here to read and discuss the news and I have never seen anything at Maximum PC so poorly written I couldn't understand it. If I had to decide between an english major or somebody who knows a thing or two about tech, I know who I would pick. You think you should be paid for this? Look at the ego on you! I think you should keep your comments related to the story.

Nvidia is an IT, not a THEY.

I love how this comes within a very short period (couple weeks, maybe?) after there was a rumor going 'round that nVidia was leaving the desktop chipset biz.  So, yeah...  I think someone at nVidia is intentionally leaking these rumors just so they can have their lolzerz at all of us going apeshit about it.  I refuse to believe this one until more concrete evidence shows up.

A third (x86) CPU vendor would be nice, though.

Cause after their chipset problems, and the huge batch of new cards that are defecetive, I definitley want an Nvidia CPU in my computer.

While I'd love to see CPU prices drop even more, I don't know how good a product it would be due to the lack of experience with x86 chips on the nvidia side.  But we'll see.  Maybe there will be another AMD for Intel to open whoop ass on.

Well actually GPU's are alot more intricate and complicated than CPU's and Nvidia has been making chipsets and GPU's for many years now. A CPU line would come easy for Nvidia.

Besides they could always just purchase a Processor manufacturer like Cyrix Logic or other lessor known manufacturers. I remember building machines based off the Cyrix 6x86 133 PR 166. Perhaps Nvidia can do better than Cyrix. I think they merged with IBM so maybe not Cyrix but you get what I'm saying...

Yeah! Maybe their already looking at E8500s and Q9450s under the microscope.  Man, than building a computer would be fun again because of the cheap prices of RAM and GPUs.  If all the CPUs drop too, then Yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!! I think that Yeah wasn't long enough. Just kidding!
