Elsa's collapse last week into receivership has seen Nvidia scrambling for new workstation graphics board partners.

Currently, Elsa retains exclusive rights for Nvidia's workstation graphics CPUs (anything with Quadro in the name).

A Nvidia representative told us the company remains committed to the German board maker - "so long as it's not completely dead in the water". But it will expand distribution through new channel partners.

It has no names to announce - yet - but the company hopes to have the channel story ready for publication in time for CeBIT next week.

Nvidia's continued support for Elsa is kinda good news for the company: this means continued access to product, despite the cash crisis.

However, it now faces competition on a key product line, probably from financially tougher companies. And the news that Nvidia is seeking out other workstation graphic card makers, puts paid to once and for all the rumours that it will step in as a guardian angel for Elsa. ®
