With Intel making considerable noise about its Atom processor and the multitude of uses that it can be put to, NVIDIA's been making waves of its own, announcing the tie-up with VIA, relating to providing GPUs for its chipset business.

Now, with VIA announcing the all-new Nano processor, a not-so-veiled attempt to beat Intel's Atom, NVIDIA has jumped right in and showcased a Nano-supporting motherboard playing ball with its GeForce 8500 GT discrete card.

We expect to see NVIDIA provide integrated graphics for the Nano in due course. Quite possibly, we could see Nano-powered notebooks, hosted by NVIDIA's mobile IGP, soon enough, and that would give Intel's dream of netbook dominance a healthy kick up the posterior.

Nano and NVIDIA mobile IGP, Atom and Intel IGP, or AMD Turion Ultra X2 and M780G? Which do you prefer, folks?

I want Atom and Poulsbo chipset.... ideal for HTPC or for "eee-style" netbook or Tegra.. but VIA (cough spit cough)...No!
