You know how NVIDIA recently announced plans for a platform that would combine the Intel Atom low power CPU with an NVIDIA GeForce 9400M GPU to provide enhanced video performance on netbooks and low power notebooks? Yeah, apparently they forgot to run that whole thing by Intel before unveiling the plan publicly.
DigiTimes reports that Intel currently bundles the Intel Atom CPU with the Intel 945GSE and 945GC chipset. The company apparently has no plans to work with NVIDIA to validate the NVIDIA chipset on Atom computers. And Intel also plans to continue selling the chips bundled with the chipset, which would make NVIDIA’s planned ION platform both more expensive and more difficult to assemble.
Update: Intel denies the DigiTimes report, and says it’s plenty happy to sell the Atom chip as a standalone CPU.
