NVIDIA: Intel Moorestown is like an elephant on a diet

Posted on Tuesday, May 25 2010 @ 18:37:39 CEST by

Laptop Mag had an interview with NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang about the company's ION and Tegra lineups. Huang couldn't resist mocking Intel, as he compared the chip giant's latest Moorestown processor to putting an elephant on a diet. He also boasted that Tegra 2 based tablets will be much better than the iPad, and defended Adobe's Flash technology by pointing out that the present is Flash, and that popular games like Zynga's FarmVille are totally dependent on Flash. You can read the full interview over here.
What’s your take on Intel’s Z6 Moorestown chip? Will they be competitive?

No. It’s not possible. You could give an elephant a diet but it’s still an elephant. And when they think about power they think reducing from 20 watts down to 5 watts down to 4 watts down to 2 watts is really good. But you and I both know that in a mobile phone you need to be in a hundred milliwatts, two hundred milliwatts. So they’re still ten times away. So that’s a big challenge for them. And meanwhile Tegra 2 is already much superior to Atom from a performance perspective. And so now we’re already dual-core, and then next year I assume Tegra 3 comes out, and then, you know, here we are increasing performance at a lightning rate and power is incredibly low, so I think it’s going to be tough for them.
