Nvidia Reportedly Scores QPI License While Intel Gets SLI For X58 Motherboards

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 8 comments

 

Nvidia has recently reached an agreement with Intel and received a Quick Path Interconnect (QPI) license enabling the company to design chipsets for Intel’s next-generation platforms, according to sources at motherboard makers. Nvidia will only launch solutions for entry-level and mid-range motherboards supporting socket 1160 CPUs (Lynnfield) initially.

    I'm a little confused by the different Nehalem sockets. How will LGA1160 compare to LGA1366?

    Hello? Nvidia did not get a QPI-license, that's whay they concentrate on the socket 1160 Nehalems - they don't use QPI.

    Could you please elaborate? What do they use if not QPI? Google is failing me at the moment :(

    This article specifically says, and I copy paste here: "reached an agreement with Intel and received a Quick Path Interconnect (QPI) license". It says that NVIDIA will initially only offer entry level and mid range segments, initially implying that high end solutions are likely to come at a later date. Someone take a class on analyzing basic sentence structure yeesh.
