Rumor: NVIDIA done making chipsets

NVIDIA used to make some really good motherboards. I say used to because anyone using any of NVIDIA's last couple generations has had a less than stellar experience with them. Now, the INQ is saying that they are done in the chipset business. They aren't the only ones that have said it and it would seem anything that's near completion for the green team will be produced but at a small scale. So what does this mean for ESA and SLI? With AMD overtaking NVIDIA in the graphics department in a lot of people's eyes this isn't another piece of news that bodes well for them.  AMD doesn't need you to use their chipset to offer Crossfire support. Will NVIDIA go that route then? It doesn't seem that long ago that NVIDIA was the king but it sure has changed quickly these past few months.
