Update Nvidia has appointed New Jersey firm PNY Technologies to flog Quadro workstation graphics boards into the OEM market worldwide.

PNY recently told the German press that it was in talks with administrators about Elsa's graphics business. It says it will release more details in coming days.

Elsa, the German graphics card maker, which is currrently operating under bankruptcy protection, had - until today - solus distribution rights for Quadro boards.

How much Quadro business is there for PNY ?

The workstation graphics board market is comparatively small, and Nvidia has creamed off the top five OEM customers for itself. It sells Quadro chips direct to Compaq, Dell, Fujitsu Siemens, Hewlett-Packard and IBM.

Elsa also makes data networking equipment and employs 260 people. But this business is to be put into liquidation on May 1, according to Heise (German language) . There may be a management buy-out, but with much fewer employees. ®
