ATI confirms Nintendo gig (we think)

Light on detail

ATI today issued a short press release even shorter on detail proclaiming that it has "entered into a technology development agreement with Nintendo". In the next breath it says the same thing again, only with the words in a different order. "Under the agreement, ATI and Nintendo are developing technologies for use in Nintendo products."

No other details are being released, but ATI describes the gig as "major".

We infer that ATI has bagged the gig, more or less, to supply the graphics for the next-gen Nintendo console. The company already supplies the graphics chips for the Nintendo GameCube.

Last week, Dave Rolston, engineering veep at ATI, told the Goldman Sachs Technology Conference, that the company was "looking at pursuing deals for future versions of both that console and Microsoft Corp.'s Xbox console, which uses Nvidia technology," Reuters reports (in a possible slip of the brain, Reuters has filed the story in its company search section under 'Nvidia'). The company is having "ongoing discussion with both of those players". ®
