Big deal for Nvidia
The Volvo Group has announced it will be using Nvidia's Drive end-to-end autonomous driving platform for training, testing, and deployment of self-driving vehicles, aiming at public transport, freight transport, refuse and recycling collection, construction, mining, forestry, and other industries.
Accelerator chips will work with Arm processors by the end of the year.
The GPU maker named after a Roman vengeance daemon, Nvidia said it would make its chips work with processors from Arm to build supercomputers.
Including Cyberpunk 2077, Watch Dogs: Legion, COD: Modern Warfare, and more
Nvidia was quite keen to announce that some of the big AAA game titles like Cyberpunk 2070 and Watch Dogs: Legion will be ray traced with CD Projekt Red's Cyberpunk 2077 as one of the biggest names around.
RTX 2080, 2070 and 2060 to get a more CUDA cores, faster memory
According to fresh leaks, it appears that Nvidia will launch a full refresh of its RTX series in mid-July, giving all cards a slight bump in CUDA core count as well as more or faster 16Gbps memory in some cases.
A different angle look
The Navi paper-launched when I was still in sunny Tuscany taking a break from the tech, but here are some of the things that have caught my attention. No Ray tracing, no high end, and only performance/mainstream, not much benefit from 7nm, and nine months late to fight 2070 are just a part of it.
Gaining at Nvidia's expense
Research from Jon Peddie Research on the GPUs used in PCs shows that AMD managed a 21 percent gain in desktop discrete GPU shipments in the first quarter.
Low latency AI on the Edge
The graphics card maker named after a Roman vengeance Daemon, Nvidia, has announced an accelerated computing platform that enables companies to perform low-latency AI at the edge.
Could be anything
Nvidia is beginning to tease an announcement of something “super” ahead of Computex.
Intel, Qualcomm, Google, Microsoft
The four above are just the tip of the iceberg and probably the companies that will most suffer from the ban, but ISV like Adobe, antivirus makers, any US-based software maker on Android or Windows selling to Huawei will be affected too.
