what a vague answer
|Last week we asked Nvidia representatives what the official company stand is on its x86 CPU project and we got a simple answer - Nvidia might do this if they realize that it makes sense.|
Even if Nvidia is doing something about it, they won't rat it until they have something real. Even if something is going on at this time, most people, including some senior personnel, wouldnâ€™t even know about it.
Since Nvidia is happy with its Tegra platform and its opportunities to bring a device that can run many multimedia things on an iPhone format device, they are starting to look in that direction. The Tegra is powered by an ARM CPU, meaning Nvidia could bring its CPU and actually give Intel and AMD something to fight against.
All in all, we believe that it will just be a case similar to Intelâ€™s graphics codenamed Larrabee project, and it will be tough for Nvidia to shine with its CPU project. After all, Nvidiaâ€™s first GPU, the NV1, was a complete failure, while NV5 was much better. These things takes time but Nvidia has proven before that it can be done.
