Nvidia wins more Sony contracts

Expected to generate more revenue than the PS3 GPU deal

Reducing security risks from open source software

Nvidia is going to get more money out of Sony - more, in fact, than it garnered for developing the PlayStation 3's graphics chip, the company revealed this week, though it won't say what the work's for.

The cash will come from "new contracts with Sony to do some further designs", Nvidia CFO Marv Burkett, said this week. Nvidia will make "probably slightly more" than the $30m Sony paid it for the PS3 GPU work, he added.

Beyond stating the contract is for "engineering work", Burkett wouldn't be drawn on what the company is doing for Sony, though he saod the project will run through 2006 and into 2007. ®
