Nvidia and Microsoft are chums again

Xbox spat despatted

Microsoft and Nvidia are friends again, amicably settling their argument over prices for X-Box components. Actually it wasn't amicable for a long time: In April last year, Nvidia disclosed in an SEC filing that Microsoft was seeking to force it to supply graphic chips for less than it thought it had agreed.

Terms of the arbitration are not disclosed but Nvidia describes it as a win-win for both parties. Which is nice. It also means that Nvidia screwed a little more money out of Microsoft, and it increases the likelihood that Nvidia will win the supply contract to supply graphics chips for the next-gen Xbox.

It also means that Microsoft will lose a little more on each Xbox it sells. ®
