NVIDIA Tesla unit chief technology officer Steve Scott revealed that Tegra is going to become GPGPU computing capable in the not-so-distant future, and he added that sometime this decade they will also integrate CPUs and GPUs together in the Tesla line.
'Sometime this decade' is not exactly clear, but we would take a guess that Nvidia is shooting for a release prior to 2015.
Scott was referring to ARMv8 processors, recently announced as Cortex-A53 and A-57 models and a 2014 released date. However, Nvidia was not mentioned by ARM in a row of current ARMv8 licensees, which include AMD, Broadcom, Calxeda, HiSilicon, Samsung and STMicroelectronics. However, the emerging microserver market is an opportunity for a natural evolution of Nvidia's business. Combining Tesla with ARMv8 cores will allow the company to compete in a segment that will be crowded with industry heavyweights such as Samsung, Qualcomm, Texas Instruments - and Intel on the x86 side. Nvidia will also compete with its arch rival AMD in a new market.
