Nvidia to license its graphics

Could Apple tap Nvidia for graphics power in its mobile devices? Maybe, now that the chip maker has decided to license its graphics technology.

Better Nvidia Graphics card
Hi, I read on another forum site that a Nvidia Geforce GT630 with 1GB dedicated memory is better than a Nvidia Geforce GT620 with 2GB dedicated memory. Is this true, surely more memory would be a bigger advantage than the slight speed difference between models? Thanks, Tom
