Biting the hand that feeds you… NVIDIA fights Microsoft, sorta

San Jose— So where does an 800 pound gorilla sleep? Where ever he wants. Microsoft has told NVIDIA that they deal that they had for pricing chipsets last year isn’t so cool. Microsoft points out that – hey, you must be producing them for less now, eh? So let’s renegotiate, so what if a goodly chunk of your revenue come from us, I know you’ll do da right thing. Officially NVIDIA disclosed that it’s in arbitration with Microsoft over the pricing of its chips used in the XBOX. Just look at the corpse of SGI lying by the roadside, you’d think all those ex-SGI NVIDIA employees’d know better. Microsoft has a term for working with other companies…”GUBO”.
