Default Intel shells out $1.5bn for Nvidia tech

From http://www.channelregister.co.uk/201...oss_licensing/

Quote:
ntel and Nvidia are burying the hatchet, and it looks like it will be stuck in AMD's skull. And, perhaps equally importantly, Nvidia will be $1.5bn richer.

With "eye candy" – snazzy media processing – being the most important aspect of personal computing these days, Intel can ill afford to be at war with graphics chip maker Nvidia. Not while AMD is fielding decent CPU chips and arguably better GPU chips, and then merging them into its Fusion products - a hybridization tack that Intel is itself making with its just-announced "Sandy Bridge" family of Core processors.
