Nvidia abandons chipset business, won't be powering your MacBook A reporter for the Taiwanese site Digitimes says chipmaker Nvidia "has decided to quit the chipset business " and focus on its core business of standalone graphics processor unit (GPU) products, which must be matched with an Intel or AMD central processor inside a computer. Nvidia's NForce 200 chipset (pictured) wasn't as widely adopted as the company had planned. The news, if true, kills rumors that Apple would replace Intel chipsets with all-Nvidia hardware in the next round of MacBooks. (Photo by Bit-tech.net)
