by admin ·
NVIDIA participation in the contract lost 10 million Linux-PCs for the Chinese students in the course of negotiations with Chinese partners. Previously NVIDIA was chosen as the Chinese Academy of Sciences of the company, which has the best graphics card for Linux with the best drivers for Linux. But suddenly it turned out that computers are not developed by Intel-compatible, which requires the creation of NVIDIA’s new drivers for video cards supplied by NVIDIA alien architecture.
NVIDIA representatives said the Chinese side, “they represent a major U.S. company and recompiling the drivers for Linux will be very costly for China – a few million dollars.” This statement was recognized as the end of the negotiations and any future cooperation c NVIDIA.
