Nvidia will demolish Intel’s legal? Or will Intel be able to convince the courts that their hold on the proverbial motherboard is in honest and "good" interest.

More about : intel nvidia round

The same could have been asked of nVidia and their "no SLI for anyone but us" idea. Thats whats going on.

And currently, nVidia cane make chipsets for CPUs that still use the FSB system, its just a QPI or DMI based chipset that they cannot make.

I personally think nvidia did it to themselves and needs to make up with Intel because I can tell you that Fermi wont do much for them.

What Nvidia is doing in a lawsuit against Intel is to make hybrid and fusion produicts available for us consumers and PC end users. Without companies like Nvidia we wouldnt get products like this hydra200.

Another double standard though would be if Nvidia refused to aid MSI or companies pushing for this hydra tech because Nvidia doesnt want to work with Ati the way intel doesnt want towork with other vendors and create a monopoly.

See thats the beauty of companies like MSi and their BIG BANG in 2009 and now this Hydra 200 fusion of two different companies in one motherboard. It is possible to have both an Nvidia card and Ati card in either crossfire OR SLI!! If only Intel would allow Nvidia or Ati to place better GPus or allow Nvidia to help or excel in the CPU industry we would get tech like this which would benefit most users with multiple GPus from different vendors!

nVidia doesn't want to have their cards work with ATIs. If they did, then they wouldn't have disabled a nVidia GPU being used for PhysX if a ATI GPU was the main GPU or they would allow ATI to use PhysX since they are capable of it (one guy created a driver for PhysX for ATI).

If nVidia wanted to innovate, they would not have stiffled the chipset market during the Core 2 series by only allowing SLI on THIER chipsets which at the time were inferior to Intels. At that time, people had absolutley no choice if they wanted the best dual GPU (at the time the 8800/9800 series) setup and best chipset. At that time, people HAD to get a nVidia chipset even if Intels overclocked better, were more stable and had better performance.

If nVidia wanted to innovate, they wouldn't have rebranded a 8800 as a 9800 or a 9800 as a GTX 250. They wouldn't be focusing on Intel for the past year and rather focus on ATI and Fermi to get something out there to compete with ATIs HD5K series, which until Fermi is out is unmatched and even when Fermi comes out will still be a better value/performance part. Hell for the price of a GTX 480 you can get a HD5970 which would outperform the GTX 480 by 2x.

I could go on and on but nVidia is being a bunch of hypocritical idiots who are stiffling the various markets. They are just pissed that Intel did not have to give them a QPI license since it was NOT covered in the original agreemnet.

It's really hard to cheer for either side.

Well, Intel to me is an establishment that will be around for years to come. Nvidia may or may not but it is not a long term company in terms of NEEDS..... but it is a WANT with a market segment in mind... Intel caters to MOST of the PC market.

Lets just hope that the Ati and AMD unison can come up with a better motherboard solution. They should go into making their own motherboards for the 890FX instead of allowing other companies to like MSI, Gigabyte,foxconn,ect.

It seems that Ati/AMD has everything to gain from the fallout of this court case and mini tech battle and they should use this as an advantage for both marketing and R&D.
