NVIDIA combines core-logic and SoC teams

For a while NVIDIA and Intel played nice with Intel licensing NVIDIA to develop chipsets for past generation processors. When the new integrated memory controller processors in use today from Intel came to be, a legal battle ensued when NVIDIA started to make chipsets for the new processors only to be denied by Intel.

NVIDIA has now announced that it has combined its core-logic teams and the SoC teams into one development team. The combined team puts lots more developers under the Tegra banner with the exact number pegged at 650 engineers.

The combining of the two teams is a signal that NVIDIA is not planning to develop chipsets and it throwing more of its resources at developing high-performance GPUs for mobile devices like smartphones, tablets, and other small gadgets. That market is probably going to be better for NVIDIA than the chipset business was anyway.
