Earlier this year Nvidia Corp. merged chipset and system-on-chip development teams in order to strengthen the Tegra product line. On Thursday chief executive officer of Nvidia officially said that the company was no longer building chipsets, which probably means that the firm no longer orders appropriate chips from Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company.

"We are not building any more chipsets, we are building SoCs now. We are building Tegra SoCs, and so we are going to take integration to a new level. [...] The chipset business [has] not grown largely this year because we have not really been expanding the sales of it," said Jen-Hsun Huang, chief executive officer of Nvidia.

But while the company no longer develops core-logic sets, it does expect its current offerings to continue shipping well into next financial year. The head of the company, unfortunately, refused to comment whether revenue share of the chipset business was already at 15% in Q3 FY2011 (down from traditional 30+%) and how fast that share will decline.

So no more building AMD based computers with Nvidia video cards? Because AMD won't supply chipsets that support Nvidia.

Um... you can run nVidia GPUs on a rig with an AMD chipset with ease... :lol:
