Portable Nvidia Chips for Mac?
11:19 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

With all of the 3dfx/Nvidia in the past week, Go2Mac has an interesting news post regarding placing portable Nvidia chips in Apple's PowerBook line. Even the current ATI chips would be hard-pressed to keep up the the 16MB portable version of Nvidia's Geforce technology. And with the relationship between Apple and ATI supposedly a bit rocky since last Summer's Radeon fiasco -- although some ATI emplyoees we have spoken to claim this incident is a myth -- this might be the perfect time for Nvidia to steal an Apple OEM deal. Here's a clip from Go2Mac's article:

The consensus from video experts is that the new mobile nVIDIA GeForce2 chips are superior in performance than the ATi Mobility M4. According to sources, nVIDIA has been much more enthusiastic about working with Apple than ATi has been lately. But that may be a result of the animosity that developed after the ATI press release fiasco.
This article is unsourced, based on rumor and is about a notebook system which has not been announced, so don't get too excited. Go2Mac has certainly published rumor as fact before.

A version of the GeForce 2 MX is supposed to be on its way to the Mac at some point as well, though nothing official has been announced about that either. For a look at the MX technology and chipset, be sure and check out our feature article.
