Microsoft's Surface RT Ditching NVIDIA?

According to the rumor mill, Microsoft is ditching NVIDIA in favor of using Qualcomm’s Snapdragon processors in its Surface RT.

Some new versions of Surface will be based on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon processors, which can deliver fast wireless data connections, said the people, who asked not to be identified because Microsoft has yet to announce new models. Nvidia Corp. (NVDA), whose Tegra chip is used in the current Surface RT, will continue as a supplier for some versions, one person said.
