nVIDIA’s chipset business may not be doing as badly as we thought. They are still providing chipsets for Apple’s products and it seems that Jobs’ crew is quite happy with what nVIDIA has provided as they are going to be picking up two new ones. Three MCPs are expected, a pair for Intel based systems including those Apples and a single solution for AMD systems. The information is pretty sparse, DigiTimes has the parts of the story we know.
