Nvidia to silently kill chipset division?

Chicago (IL) – The Internet rumor mill suggests that Nvidia may be cancelling future developments of new nForce media and communication processors, commonly referred to as chipsets. There is no official confirmation from Nvidia and we don’t expect such a confirmation anytime soon. But the sheer number of reports and quotes from industry sources certainly is reason enough to keep a close eye on Nvidia.

The company is gearing for its first big developer event, Nvision 08, which will open its doors in San Jose on August 25. PR and marketing is already in full swing and we just learned that the company is preparing some Guinness World record attempt and convinced astronaut Eileen Collins and actress Tricia Helfer to appear at the show. But the Internet isn’t very interested in the show yet and apparently wants to talk about the future of the company’s chipsets.
