It's been rumored since March, but NVIDIA's CEO has tried to dispel any ideas that his company is interested in Via.
"They don't need our money. I don't need theirs," Huang said, referring to Via. "They're doing fine. People want to create drama," he added.
Previous reports cited a number of scenarios including Nvidia's acquisition of the entire company. Via makes processors and chipsets for x86-based computers. Via reported revenue of about US$87.5 million in the first quarter of 2008.
Why is Huang not interested? Because it's not their schtick. Yep, his words.
"Our shtick is that we just focus on
one thing. We said we're a visual computing technology company and
we're completely focused on this."
