Nvidia va a por todas en los sistemas SOC – (System on a chip), y por ello gracias a la nota de prensa que nos envían, nos enteramos de que están trabajando en un nuevo procesador ARM de alto rendimiento, el por ahora llamado Project Denver.

Y eso no es todo, y es que pretenden meterlo en todo lo que puedan, PC’s, servidores, superordenadroes, etc…

Así mismo, han anunciado que la próxima o futura generación de procesadores Tegra estará basada en ARM Cortex A15, ya que la han licenciado recientemente.

Viendo lo visto, parece que la industria va a equilibrarse entre ARM y X86 / X64 en los próximos años, sobre todo gracias al apoyo de Google, Microsoft con Windows 7/8 para ARM, apple, etc…

NVIDIA Announces “Project Denver” To Build Custom CPU Cores Based on ARM Architecture, Targeting Personal Computers to Supercomputers

NVIDIA Licenses ARM Architecture to Build Next-Generation Processors
That Add a CPU to the GPU
Las Vegas — CES 2011 ­— NVIDIA announced today that it plans to build high- performance ARM® based CPU cores, designed to support future products ranging from personal computers and servers to workstations and supercomputers.
Known under the internal codename “Project Denver,” this initiative features an NVIDIA® CPU running the ARM instruction set, which will be fully integrated on the same chip as the NVIDIA GPU.
This new processor stems from a strategic partnership, also announced today, in which NVIDIA has obtained rights to develop its own high performance CPU cores based on ARM’s future processor architecture. In addition, NVIDIA licensed ARM’s current Cortex™-A15 processor for its future-generation Tegra® mobile processors.
“ARM is the fastest-growing CPU architecture in history,” said Jen-Hsun Huang, president and chief executive officer of NVIDIA. “This marks the beginning of the Internet Everywhere era, where every device provides instant access to the Internet, using advanced CPU cores and rich operating systems.
“ARM’s pervasiveness and open business model make it the perfect architecture for this new era. With Project Denver, we are designing a high-performing ARM CPU core in combination with our massively parallel GPU cores to create a new class of processor,” he said.
Warren East, ARM chief executive officer said, “NVIDIA is a key partner for ARM and this announcement shows the potential that partnership enables. With this architecture license, NVIDIA will be at the forefront of next generation SoC design, enabling the Internet Everywhere era to become a reality.”
