Intel insists Atom only for Intel chipsets, does not want to share Nvidia's Ion

DigiTimes reports that Intel h

The Nvidia Ion platform combines the GeForce 9400 mGPU with the Intel Atom CPU. That combination would be only possible if Intel started selling Atom processors without the Intel chipset (945GSE and 945GC). However, Intel replied to hardware makers that this wouldn't happen, at least anytime near soon. DigiTimes got an Intel comment that "...We have no plans to validate the Nvidia MCP79 chipset on Atom-based nettop or netbook platforms. Intel also has no plans to form a partnership with Nvidia to support nettop or netbook platforms based on the Intel Atom CPU,...". Nvidia is expected to respond soon, even there are many people who believe that such platform would be seen at the market...Only time will tell if Nvidia will partner with Intel.
