Nvidia dumping VIA for Intel’s Atom?

Nvidia_logoVia_logoNvidia signed a deal earlier this year to work in the low-cost CPU and MID markets with VIA, providing a low-cost solution for OEMs making these low margin gadgets.  DigiTimes in Asia is reporting that Nvidia was using that collaboration as a bargaining chip with Intel to get the chip giant to let Nvidia play in the Atom ecosystem.  Of course neither VIA nor Nvidia is willing to comment on this report but it would certainly make sense from a business standpoint.
