This is still speculation at the moment as NVIDIA was deemed too expensive to purchase.The article claims:
Some observers said that they doubt Intel would buy NVIDIA because it's too expensive. The company has a stock market capitalization of about $10 billion, which means it would demand a far higher price than what AMD is paying for ATI.
Nevertheless, if the acquisition were to happen it would be interesting to see what Intel has in store for NVIDIA, as Intel holds the majority of the graphics market. Intel’s primary competitor,

I'll be pissed. Because while I trust AMD to keep things open and keep ATI pretty much non-biased, I don't trust Intel to do the same.

Right. I really doubt Intel would make nVIDIA cards only work with Intel chips or something like that. They might do something like nVIDIA/CORSAIR EPP Profiles thing, which enhances performance when used together, as an incentive, but Intel wouldn't do anything drastic.
Pfft. AMD fanboys.

I own a C2D system. How does my trust of one company over another make me a fanboy? I like AMD certainly, but I prefer the manufacturer with the faster processor over the brand on the box.
Does my trust of Mobil oil over Pennzoil(sp?) make me a Mobil fanboy?
Pfft. Idiots who make assumptions based on nothing.
