The more I think about it, I see Nvidia buying out VIA if this has any truth.
Going after the small client market.

Circling as in "gimme gimme!"? If they buy then the license is revoked.

No but its come up many times at the Inq, and they are very well know to spread false rumours.

Intel should just buy nVidia, and then we'd have a true "arms race" as it were.

Yeah tell me about it - They predicted the end of the world for 1996...then in 1999... then 2006, so yeah they tend to sometimes spread things.....

Same place that rumored that Intel was going to buy nVidia.

Are you serious? If Nvidia wasn't taking AMD serious then why did they drop their prices so fast and so much on their current crop of losing video cards?

Nvidia cannot and will not compete in the CPU market. They haven't even made a worthwhile chipset since the NF4, never mind a platform. Nvidia is trying to hard and is falling short even with the most powerful single GPU card. Kinda funny if you ask me.
