Apple switching to NVIDIA chipset for sure – like we told you

Looks like we’ve got confirmation (oh wait, we confirmed it a week ago) of what everyone’s been talking about; Apple is definitely giving the Intel chipset the boot and moving to an NVIDIA one. Hopefully this means not only more power but more battery life (hybrid SLI), more versatility (OpenCL and CUDA), and slightly smaller size (unified chipset architecture). I don’t think anyone’s super surprised at this move, although there had been rumors that NVIDIA was getting out of the chipset game altogether.

I’m happy to hear that such an interesting change is definitely coming over what will likely be my next laptop — let’s just hope we don’t have an epidemic of cracked solder.
