With Intel not giving Nvidia a license to produce chipsets supporting Nehalem-based architecture, which includes the latest Core i3, i5 and i7 CPUs, the graphics maker's nForce team hasn't had as much to do as it used to.
Perhaps for that reason, Nvidia has merged its nForce chipset team together with its Tegra development team. This puts Nvidia's MCP team together with the SoC team to create one big body of 650-strong.
Ken Brown, spokesman for Nvidia, confirmed the change to Xbit Labs by commenting, "We have merged these teams under the Tegra development team. This substantially strengthens our engineering effort for Tegra development going forward."
While this may seem like Nvidia's thrown in the towel when it comes to producing chipsets, company CEO Jen-Hsun Huang is still openly excited about getting to fight Intel in court.
