Default End of Nforce?

With VIA officially calling it quits, Nvidia is the only thirdparty chipset vendor still shooting live rounds. But what about in 2009? On intel, it's open for debate. Nvidia has sad it believes it has a license to build chipset for the Core i7, but Intel said that's not quite true. One thing is certain: Nvidia will not have a chipset for the LGA1366-based Core i7 CPUs at all, but the company is planning one for LGA1066 CPUs when they're released later next year. Unfortunately, it's not clear whether Nvidia can do this without a lawsuit from Intel--and with graphics and PCI-E integration slated for Intel's LGA1066 CPUs, what would even be the point
