"Chicago (IL) – Nvidia apparently is looking for a closer relationship with Intel and release some of its graphics technologies in exchange for an improved cooperation with the world’s largest processor, graphics and chipset manufacturer."
Common sense requires that NVIDIA work with Intel to negate any advantage AMD has with its shared CPU and & GPU technologies. Intel on the other hand is quite open to helping out anybody that can hurt its main rival AMD. While it is known that Intel is looking at including graphics capabilities in future multi-core CPU's, the high-end graphics solution is a market segment intel does not wish to enter. The margins and return on investment to fighting a low volume segment does not appeal to Intel. NVIDIA will be more willing to share some of its secrets to get free reign in the discrete market.
Intel and NVIDIA shouldn't find it difficult to work out a win-win strategy as they both take market share from the struggling AMD instead of each other. Maybe they can both teach AMD a lesson about getting something without necessarily breaking the bank.
