Will Apple Use NVIDIA Chipset In Next MacBook?

Macintosh, Technology Add comments

Rumors say that Apple is considering NVIDIA Chipset as the replacement to Intel Chipset in the future MacBook product in Q4 2008. This is seriously a boon for Apple MacBook, given the performance of Intel integrated GPU (GMA X3100) is a dog by standard. While, discreet GPU like NVIDIA GeForce 8600GM found on MacBook Pro is like 10 times the performance of Intel GMA X3100 found on the Apple’s consumer line, the MacBook product, Apple is strongly need a really competent GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) to boast it’s forthcoming Snow Kitty Mac OS X 10.6 which can handle computing in GPU instead of CPU.

I should say a real kick ass for MacBook if Apple is willing to pull the rabbit out of NVIDIA’s hat, given the problem currently arise at NVIDIA failing product (bad packaging). And for Intel, I should say “Guys what the hell are you thinking?” given that you are the market leader in this chipset area and killed VIA and SIS along the way, but I’ve seen no compelling reason to buy your IGP (Integrated Graphics Processing) other than so lame called “compatibility” reason 🙁 Dooh…. Larrabbee anyone? Come on.

    => Kemaren gua nemu benchmark website khusus vga notebook, ada class 1 (fastest), class 2, class 3 dst. Bagus tuh, lupa dimana euy.

    Snow leopard focus ga cuma di optimation kok, tapi fitur GPU computingny lebih menarik. Se bloated nya Leopard nothings compares to slowliness Vista hahhaaa… Vista khusus buat orang tua, yang biasa alon-alon asal kelakon mas… wakakakak 😛
