Acer to integrate nVidia technology into chip set

Year end, it seems

The chip subsidiary of Acer has signed a deal with nVidia to put its technology into a chipset. Acer Labs Inc (ALi), will produce an integrated chipset using nVidia technology by year end. The move is part of the growing trend towards low-end, integrated systems. Yesterday, Intel acknowledged that the future of graphics chips was in integrated, low end solutions, when it axed its discrete graphics chip unit, as reported here. Neither ALi nor nVidia was available to comment at press time. ®
