NVIDIA says no to x86 chip development and GlobalFoundries

Posted on Monday, November 09 2009 @ 18:56:09 CET by


In last week's earnings call with analysts, NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang was asked if his company is working on a x86 compatible chip. This is a rumor that has been circulating for a while, but Huang dismissed it and said NVIDIA's future is visual and parallel computing. Huang also denied NVIDIA may start using GlobalFoundries, he said GlobalFoundries is AMD's fab and that NVIDIA's strategy is TSMC.
"No," he said when asked if there was any truth to the rumor. "Nvidia's strategy is very, very clear. I'm very straightforward about it. Right now, more than ever, we have to focus on visual and parallel computing."

Huang went on to describe where the chip supplier sees its best opportunities for growth. "Our strategy is to proliferate the GPU (graphics processing unit) into all kinds of platforms for growth," he said. "GPUs in servers for parallel computing, for supercomputing--and cloud computing with our GPU is a fabulous growth opportunity--and streaming video."
