Nvidia has released an official statement refuting the recent Digitimes story claiming that the company is planning to quit its chipset business. Michael Jong, senior director of corporate marketing for Nvidia indicated that Nvidia has no intention of getting out of the chipset business and that the report is completely groundless.
Jong stated that Nvidia’s MCP business is as strong as it ever has been for both AMD and Intel platforms, and pointed out that Mercury Research reported Nvidia’s market share on AMD platforms was 60% last quarter.
