NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang expressed his love for ARM processors in an interview with EE Times and said smartphones and tablets will disrupt the x86 PC industry.
"It's a foregone conclusion that the personal computer of the future is this size," said Huang, holding up his smartphone. "You could add wireless HDMI to it someday, and it could also be your set-top box," he said in a fireside chat at the event.
"The PC of the future will be made by new OEMs, sold through new distributors and use a new instruction-set architecture," Huang said. "ARM will be the most important CPU architecture of the future, and it already is the fastest growing processor architecture," he added.
