Agam Shah writes that Nvidia is looking beyond graphics processors and plans to push future Tegra chips into servers.
They have some interesting parallel processing technology that works out for them, and they have ARM, which makes sense for them to pair to go after that class of applications,” said Dean McCarron, principal analyst at Mercury Research. Nvidia’s target market for server chips could be GPU-dependent systems delivering graphics or mathematical rendering in the cloud, McCarron said. ARM processors are not as proficient as GPUs in performing complex calculations, so Nvidia could end up making trade-offs on its ARM CPU design on power to bring in more performance.
