Nvidia believes that x86 is history

Written by Fuad Abazovic

CES 2011: ARM SOC is the future
Jensen compared the x86 architecture to defunct Circuit City when comparing PCs with mobile devices. Obviously he wants to convince the world that ARM is the future and that x86 doesn’t matter.

The reason is simple as AMD and Intel have x86 and Nvidia doesn't. Nvidia has Tegra 2, and in late 2011 Tegra 3, so it hopes to capture a piece of market in tablet and dual core phone markets.

Nvidia sees superphones as computers first and phones second, and of course there is Flash support. Nvidia also hopes that games will look better on Tegra as well. After all, Nvidia has The Way It's Meant To Be Played and we all know that scheme proved quite succesful in the past.

Oh yes, Tegra 2 can accelerate flash in hardware. Five years after the Tegra adventure started, you can see some actual design wins that could make some money and fill the chipset void.

I believe Nvidia is crap!... lets see who's right!

The only reason x86 won't matter is if they don't have a license, which they don't, and if they won't get any, which they won't.

"Nvidia sees superphones as computers first and phones second"... and I see computers as computers for their immense horse power and phones (super or not) as toys because I get bored with the software in like two, three days of playing with it.

These idiots don't get it... they can't and they won't change the market based on the crap they put out, no matter how many millions the PR clowns are payed.

I think this is a saving grace for Nvidia and I'd rather have Nvidia around for the next few decades than not even if I'll stick with Radeons so long as they run cooler.

Keep in mind that Microsoft is making Windows 8 compatible with ARM processors if I recall what I read correctly a couple of weeks ago. I'd love to see Nvidia strengthen it's position, produce better CPU's than Intel and have a third choice. Of course by that time I won't be on XP and will have decided which Linux distro I'll use because M$ is destroying their products and I won't bend over for Apple's overpriced hardware.

The game has changed and only a dip $h!t can't see it! Apple changed the game and the market. Now everybody wants a piece of that Apple pie! You don't need a desktop PC anymore, period!! Thats the bottom line. Your PC, office, entertainment, and connection to everything and everybody is now in your hand! This is the next big thing and thats why every electronic company that matters is trying to launch a pad or a phone! Way to go Nvidia! :-)

Your post are childish, don´t believe for a moment that you can compare the power of a desktop pc for working on office, cad, engeniering programs,... and so with the shity tegra, don make laugh, tegra is one more on the game, for toys and portable thingys, is the new net bubble, wich is fine.AMD Fusion crushes tegra, PERIOD.

Even intel once believed x86 was dead.

I've been listening to Jensen's annoyances for too long now. The guy can't get over his hate for x86. Not that their ARM processors haven't slowly made progress over the years and have had some breakthroughs, but he should really shut his mouth and just let sales figures and trends do the talking. People trash talk about how they have something and how others have nothing, not how they think it's gonna be that way in the future - that's just weakness. If you want to advertise how you're better, fine, that's just competition, compare and brag about specs, but quit making outrageous claims about ubiquitous brands and technologies suddenly dying just because you said so.

I'm sorry Fudo, But Nvidia super strong man needs a reality check. x86 has been around for some time. My Caltech Alumni, Moore the father of the x86 architecture has been around longer than Nvidia's mere existence. x86 isn't going anywhere. Seriously man. This is guy is full of it.
