Jensen tells us that ARM is Nvidia's choice

Written by Fuad Abazovic


GTC 2010: Fastest growing CPU ever he claims
Jensen just told the world that Nvidia's CPU of choice is ARM. There is no mention of x86 and Jensen sticks with the ARM story.

They want to continue going after the Tegra market and get in as many mobile devices as possible. This is Nvidia’s choice and strategy. Jensen also tells us that he believe that ARM is an amazing CPU architecture and that is the fastest growing CPU in the history.

That is quite a statement and ARM is definitely the choice for most high end mobile phones and tablets. However, ARM has made little impact on server and notebook markets thus far, and even less on the desktop scene.

We are sure that we will hear more about Nvidia’s ARM plans, so stay tuned.

I reckon the decision to pair with ARM is truly down to the Nvidia and Intel clashes in the past, not because their processors are "amazing"

Quoting yourma2000:

Yes, it's not much of a "choice" when ARM is the only option available, now, is it?

What about VIA? nothing wrong with them, they do some good processing units for small form factor electronics, and I'm sure Intel can come up with smaller atom solutions

When you don't have an X86 license, everything else becomes an "amazing CPU architecture". ;-)

AMD is going to bulldoze over nvidia's ARM. 8)

They are not considering the ARM as a platform cpu, they are going to incorporate it directly onto their HPC product boards to cut down on the traffic between the gpu and main cpu as pcie is often a bottleneck with hpc tasks.

ARM is great for simple tasks, but cannot be compared with intel or amd cpus. Everyone who has programmed an ARM platform knows that.
