AMD unsure if NVIDIA is able to make x86 CPUs

Posted on Sunday, March 15 2009 @ 11:30:49 CET by

Following news that NVIDIA is planning to make x86 processors with 2-3 years, AMD CEO Dirk Meyer told BusinessWeek in an interview that he's suspicious of NVIDIA's ability to create x86 chips from scratch:
What do you think of the reports that Nvidia (NVDA) is interested in making x86-based chips like you and Intel do now?

I'm not surprised by it. It confirms the idea we had when we bought ATI [Technologies] a few years ago. I think it's pretty ironic that Jen-Hsun Huang, who's a good friend of mine, was touting the fact that Nvidia was the only independent graphics chip company left as if it were a good thing. In my view it's not a good thing. But I'm a little suspicious of Nvidia's ability to create an x86 chip from scratch. The intellectual property barriers alone are enormous. It's not something you switch on like a light switch. And by the way, you have to pay [Intel] for it.
