Nvidia-Microsoft to work on Xbox II

Thanks Robert for the email. Peace appears to have broken out between aggressive graphics chip company Nvidia and belligerent graphics chip company Microsoft, if reports in today's Economic News of Taiwan are to be credited.

And Nvidia is still chummy with TSMC and is developing 130 nanometer graphics chips with the Taiwanese foundry, the report adds.

The newspaper quotes K.B. Ng, Nvidia sales chief in the APAC region, as saying that his firm will work together to produce the next design of the Xbox, the Xbox II.

Microsoft and Nvidia are currently engaged in a dispute over the last generation of the Xbox, and we know that the Vole wants Graphzilla to charge a lot less for chipsets in the console.

Ng claimed that Nvidia will have over 10 per cent of Athlon XP market this year as its Nforce II chipset gets rolled out into motherboards.
