Intel's entry into the GPU market will undoubtedly steal the share of AMD and NVIDIA. Although NVIDIA welcomed Intel's entry into the GPU market before, it would obviously affect its own interests if it watched Intel grow bigger. Would NVIDIA also enter the CPU market of Intel's strong strength?
The answer is No. CFO Colette Kress of NVIDIA made a statement at Citibank's Global Technology Conference recently. She believes that NVIDIA does not need to produce both CPU and GPU products at the same time to ensure that the high-speed interface between the two chips is actually more important. That's why NVIDIA spent $6.9 billion on acquisition. Mellanox, an Israeli company, is focused on high-performance interconnection.
Although NVIDIA has no intention of entering the high-performance CPU market to compete with Intel, we recall that NVIDIA was not without such ambitions in previous years, and the X86 architecture was private, so they chose the ARM architecture.And self-developed high-performance 64-bit Denver CoreHowever, the actual performance of Denver CPU is not satisfactory, and there are other problems in the mobile market, and eventually there is nothing going on at the core of NVIDIA's high-performance ARM.
