Nvidia has reportedly decided to throw in the towel and quit the chipset business, sources close to the situation at one of Taiwan's top motherboard makers have revealed.
Digitimes.com reports that Nvidia may stop developing chipsets since its motherboard partners appeared to show little interest in the prospect of implementing the new Nvidia chipsets in their hardware offerings.
According to Digitimes, "Nvidia called a meeting earlier this week with its motherboard partners to gauge support for it continuing to develop chipsets in the future. The motherboard makers' response? Silence."
Some makers have already canceled upcoming high-end motherboard projects based on the nForce 7-series chipset.
Nvidia has not commented on the report.
