    1.3 billion, and they still don't get a X86 license, just continued access to Intel patents technology, and Intel might get access to all of theirs.

    Awwwww, dangit. I was hoping nVidia got their hands on an x86 license. As it is, they have one anyway from one of their may aquisitions, but can't use it.

    I take note of this point:

    "With the exception of one agreement term that is confidential"

    This interests me. Wonder what it could be...

    Wow. This is BIG news.

    At first read, I thought that was nV paying Intel for continued and renewed x86 license.

    But NO, it was Intel paying nV. So Intel will get nV IP and CUDA, physx, libraries, licensed etc. (so it seams)

    Integrated IGP might just be something useful again in late 2011/12.

    Basically Intel has just paid nV's R&D, meaning that nV can now sell its current range of GPU at production cost plus small margin, rather than having to recover all those R&D costs. Nice one for us! Prices going down :)

    It would be nice, but I highly doubt it. They're a business, not a public service.
