NVIDIA Corporation and Microsoft Corporation announced that the companies have settled all issues related to pricing of the Microsoft Xbox GPU (graphics) and MCP (audio and networking) chipset and have ended the arbitration between them. In addition to resolving this pricing dispute, the two companies have agreed to collaborate on future cost reductions for the Xbox. More details will be provided during NVIDIA's quarterly conference call to be held February 13, 2003 (Thursday).

"This is a win for both companies, and we couldn't be more delighted with the results," said Jen-Hsun Huang, president and CEO at NVIDIA. "NVIDIA and Microsoft can now take our partnership to the next level and focus our substantial resources to maximize the full potential of Xbox game console."

"With the arbitration resolved, we look forward to continuing the partnership between Microsoft and NVIDIA and turning our focus to building on the great success of the Xbox platform," stated Robbie Bach, senior vice president of Microsoft and Chief Xbox Officer.

On a final note if you are the proud owner of Microsoft stock, it just did a two for one split if you owned it before 27 Jan 03 :)

They need to rename Microsoft's stock tracking symbol to something a little more 
recognizable - I'm thinking 666 or SATAN >_<
