Nvidia pushes embedding

Graphics maker Nvidia is tomorrow expected to launch a new series of embedded chips, a move which will put it in direct competition with Intel, says Reuters. Nvidia currently owns 62 percent of the embedded market linked with AMD processors, but less than one percent of the Intel market; Nvidia hopes to challenge this with new Intel-ready processors, specifically the GeForce 7050, 7150, and non-GS 7100.

These chips should in theory have as much power as some low-cost dedicated cards, but come in desktop computers priced between $400 and $600. Supported Intel CPUs will include the Pentium, Celeron and Core 2 lines, plus the Penryn processors due on November 12th. No costs or computer builders have been mentioned.
