Subject: NVIDIA and AMD to Partner
Here is a snip of the partnering story on NVIDIA's site:
NVIDIA announced that the Company's core products, including the NVIDIA nForce Platform Processors and GeForce Graphics Processing Units, will take full advantage of the unique technologies integrated into AMD's next-generation Opteron processor and eighth-generation Athlon architectures. The AMD Opteron processor architecture will deliver a world-class computing experience for commercial and consumer users with a host of new innovations including an integrated memory controller and HyperTransport data bus technology. NVIDIA has both 32-bit and 64-bit software drivers in development that will leverage the power of the 64-bit AMD Opteron and Athlon processors upon their release in the market, and will introduce a new line of nForce- based core-logic chipsets for the AMD Opteron processor architecture later this year.Intel and ATI still own you :P
"As the leader in graphics and platform processing solutions, we are excited about new high performance 64-bit and 32-bit X86 architectures that excel in professional and consumer applications," stated Dan Vivoli, vice president of marketing at NVIDIA. "By combining AMD's forthcoming processors with NVIDIA's graphics, audio, networking and streaming technologies, NVIDIA can deliver the fastest, most feature-rich, multimedia and networking experiences for both the consumer and commercial desktop PC markets."
