    it's artificial pricing on Intel's part... they are potentially making a loss on the atom + chipset, or put a massive mark up on the atom when sold singley, trying to recoup the market share lost to a rival chipset with increased revenue. i don't see it as anti competitive, intel is competing with a low price, so nVidia will have to compete on a variable of quality, as it has been bigging up HD playback and so on.

    I suppose there's also some sort of clause that stops Manufacturers buying the Atom bundle and throwing away the 945/ICH7s.

    Nividia does nothing "fair" too, selling a old videocard as new 4 times in a row. I call that misleading customers...

    But their just unfair to the customers, not other businesses. I think that's where they're coming from. ;)

    So Intel is offering something for a low price and Nvidia is complaining? Or did I miss something.

    Also, can someone please fill me in on this. "Nividia does nothing "fair" too, selling a old videocard as new 4 times in a row. I call that misleading customers..."

    I hear people talk about that, but I seem to have missed the whole story.

    8800GT -> 8800GTS -> 9800GT -> 9800GTX -> 9800GTX+ -> GTS250.

    pretty much the same card over and over again

    Personally I am not surprised that Intel are giving people money to take their chuffing ***** chipsets...

    The 8800GT is a cut down 8800GTS and came after it, it's not the same card. It goes like this..

    8800GTS (90nm cut-down 8800GTX) -> 8800GTS 512MB (same name, different card - 65nm, 128 shaders, but 256-bit memory bus) -> 9800GTX (pretty much the exact same thing as the 8800GTS 512MB) -> 9800GTX+ (55nm shrink of 9800GTX with zero changes otherwise) -> GTS250 (new name, new cooler, no changes from the + otherwise)

    ya but it still doesnt really address the decoding issues that the netbooks can come across with higher bit-rate streams and video. Granted it doesnt state what type of GPU or its capabilities so I guess there is still a chance

    So why can't OEMs buy the $25 package and stick the excess chipset in the bin/on a different mobo?

    As mentioned before they most likely have to agree some kind of license agreement that makes that impossible.
