Future Nvidia GPUs could be manufactured by Intel

In the tech world, some things sound more implausible than others. This is one such implausibility: could your next Nvidia GPU come out of an Intel foundry? According to Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang, Nvidia is considering it.

Huang’s comments came at a Q&A session yesterday (via Tom’s Hardware). Discussion around Intel’s Foundry services led to the surprising comments. “We are very open-minded to considering Intel, and I’m delighted by the efforts that they’re making,” Huang said. If Intel’s process technology can deliver a favourable combination of clock frequency and power consumption, why wouldn’t Nvidia want to explore the option?
