AMD was unable to cover the Apple demand for the Llano model, so Apple is now focusing it’s attention again on Nvidia GPU, as they partnered up again with Nvidia.
Although Apple and Nvidia ended their previous partnership, the current situation of the market in this sector does not offer too many alternatives. So, MacBook laptops that are going to be manufactured in 2012 will come with Nvidia GPU’s.
We are mostly talking about the MacBook Pro, a laptop with a similar design to MacBook Air, but a bit lighter and thinner which Apple is going to release next year.
This decision made by Apple is rather forced: although Nvidia is not exactly ideal, it remains the only available solution on a market in which competition is pretty limited.
