Intel pushes own-brand mobos with Nvidia bundle

ATI last summer, now it's rival's turn

Intel is bundling an Nvidia PCI Express graphics cards with a number of its motherboards in a bid to boost sales through the rest of the year, Nvidia has confirmed.

The bundles are available through Intel's distribution channel. They take in four 'Alderwood'-based boards, the D925XCV, the D925XBC, the D925XECV2 and the D925XEBV2, and three 'Grantsdale'-based boards, the D915PBL, the D915PCY and the D915PCM. Until 31 December 2004, each will come with a GeForce 6600 GT-based card.

Intel has done this kind of thing before, and not only with Nvidia. In the summer, it offered a range of mobos with bundled ATI cards. ®
