Nvidia and Intel plan collaboration, says report
As far as we know, Intel is developing its "Larrabee" project—which is likely to be a high-end discrete graphics processor aimed at gaming and general-purpose tasks—entirely in-house so far. However, DigiTimes reports Intel could could get a little hand from Nvidia as part of an upcoming cooperation deal between the two companies. Quoting sources at motherboard makers, the site says Nvidia will "release some of its graphics processor unit (GPU) technology to Intel in exchange for cooperation," and that the two firms have already reached a number of agreements. The precise nature of those agreements remains unknown for the time being. DigiTimes does mention that Nvidia executives have met with Intel partners to explain Nvidia's plans in the motherboard market, though.
