Apparently NVIDIA and VIA are in talks to merge, with the larger NVIDIA obviously doing the buying and the aging, struggling VIA looking to sell.  We recently talked with VIA about their upcoming processor line and can't help but think that NVIDIA still desperately wants to get into the general purpose processor world to have a snowball's chance of competing with Intel in the long run.
