Nvidia boss lashes out at Intel

The pugnacious CEO of graphics chip firm Nvidia has decided to take another pop at chip giant Intel.

According to an interview with Reuters, CEO Jen-Hsun Huang accused Intel of pricing its chips in an unfair way.

But, rather magnanimously, he has decided not to bring an antitrust action against the chip giant yet, even though the rest of the world is inclined to do that. Last week the European Union fined Intel over a billion dollars.

Huang claimed that Intel sells the Atom chip, used in netbooks, for $45 when it’s sold alone, but discounts it when it sells chipsets. Nvidia makes chipsets and that’s why Nvidia thinks the pricing is unfair.

Although Intel said that its pricing is fair, Huang told Reuters he wanted Intel to compete fairly.
