mazuki:i think the reason is intel wants their own "Fusion" and they know nvidia is looking for it as well, with their newly acquired ageia, so why help them along in interfacing with intel products.
Would it be feasable for Intel to compete in the GPU market? If not... why?
I am in the process of upgrading my sysytem now, and this only complicates things for me.
I hate to say it but what goes around comes around. Nvidia didnt want to give intel sli license for their motherboards and now intel is saying fine we dont want to give you our (whatever technology). I am glad they are talking to amd though.
I believe that Intel wants to get into the discreet Graphics market. Given their size & resourses I can see them becomimg a major player if the pursue it.

I'm quite happy about this actually. Considering Nvidia refused giving a SLI license to intel for their motherboard chipset. I wouldn't mind that nvidia did this if they atleast had a decent intel chipset. But the 650/680i chipsets had MANY issues, any now they release 750/780i which is just a 650/680 with updated specs and a BR04 chip for tri sli? They deserve it. I feel insulted even though I don't even have a nvidia board considering these two new chipsets.....As much as nvidia's graphics cards rock atm....I really do hope they get what they deserve.
