|Jen-Hsun Huang, Co-founder and CEO of NVIDIA is a determined person who is always ready to put up a fight for his company. Watching this energetic, enthusiastic and enigmatic CEO at the American University of Dubai was an extremely satisfying experience. He spoke passionately about GPU computing to a hall filled with young minds on how innovation rather than anything else is what drives NVIDIA- a company that went from three employees to over five thousand six hundred in sixteen years of its existence. I had the pleasure of sitting with him face to face. The following are excerpts from that interview.|
I would very much like to thank Jen Hsun and wish NVIDIA the best of luck with their upcoming Firmy.
We needed to figure out what to change. If we were just like them (3DFX) and already behind them then how were we gonna win in the market place. And thats when I really learned that there is a difference between strategy and technology.
â€œIf we dont revolutionize the GPU again then weâ€™ve already hit the wall. Thats exactly the reason why we invented PhysX
Iâ€™m not cynical about the market but If you give them the same thing over and over again, theyâ€™ll get tired.
If youâ€™re a little patient, dual core is gonna come and chips will get better and better. â€

that's what we did with firmy- taught everyone how it works because its so different and the performance is going to be so much better and faster.

Atom is a good but its a little limiting- not because the processor is slow but because the cache is not enough. Intel shrunk the cache too much. If you're a little patient, dual core is gonna come and chips will get better and better

If they hit a wall, there wouldn't be future cards.

It's just like CPUs and multicore. They could no longer get the same gains by simply developing the architecture, so instead just starting adding cores. I wonder where they'll go after we hit a law of diminishing returns with that...
