[AnandTech] NUVIA: New Server CPU Startup Going After Intel and AMD

Source: https://www.anandtech.com/show/15115...ter-cpu-market

Quote:
Founded by former senior Apple CPU architects, NUVIA for the first time publicly revealed its existence with the announcement of a successful first investment round. The company broke cover with the press release that it completed a Series A funding round of $53 million from a group of major investors:

“The funding round was co-led by prominent Silicon Valley investors Capricorn Investment Group, Dell Technologies Capital, Mayfield and WRVI Capital, with additional participation from Nepenthe LLC.”

What’s special about NUVIA is that this isn’t your ordinary silicon-valley start-up company trying to find success with a new idea, but rather group of industry heavy-weights with extremely impressive resumes:

“NUVIA was founded in early 2019 with the goal of reimagining silicon design to deliver industry-leading performance and energy efficiency for the data center. The company was founded by John Bruno, Manu Gulati and Gerard Williams III, who have collectively driven system engineering and silicon design for more than 20 chips, with more than 100 patents granted to date. NUVIA’s founders bring a rich silicon design heritage, having held a diverse array of engineering leadership roles at Google, Apple, ARM, Broadcom and AMD.”

The founding trio of Bruno, Gulati and Williams were key high-level architects at Apple whose expertise brought fruition to many generations of Apple’s SoCs and CPU microarchitectures. Williams was the chief architect on all of Apple’s CPU designs, including the recent Lightning core in the A13.

A brand new startup is going to replace x86 with Arm in the server market?
And they only offer vague pie in the sky talk?
Color me skeptical.

did you see that crypto ledger thing Boeing went in on recently? Hedera, google it. then lol.

R.I.P. Zawarudo, may you OC angels' wings in heaven.
If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.

At first I thought it was VIA making a comeback to the x86-64 performance market.
But it's a startup from scratch.
Without x86-64, color me skeptical too.

There are a ton of options for them. RISC-V, Power and ARM. We'll see which one they go with.

From the article:

Quote:
What gives credibility to the new company’s lofty goals is the founder’s track record of their past designs. Apple’s silicon success over the last half decade has been one of the most impressive developments in the industry, and it seems NUVIA has been able to recruit top talent with the aim to reproduce such success in the datacentre market.

Trying to compete w/IBM (Power 9 CPU), Intel, AMD in the server CPU market? Good luck. Vaporware isn't going to cut it.

So it's yet another start up that secured funding from having industry connections. In other words they have no product but are already receiving money in hopes that one day maybe they will. Typical speculation and the state of current market where anyone can fund anything and there has been more than enough burns already that way.
No amount of managers from big tech is gonna do the grunt work.

Let me know when they have an actual product with specific price/performance and performance/power.

From their site it looks more like, hey we received money and are hiring grunts so we can make the product now.

I'm kinda wondering if its a Producers kinda scam, get lots of investors, spend a little of the investors' money on development, hide the rest, then file for bankruptcy.
