NVIDIA Unveils Denver ARM-Based CPU For HPC

MojoKid (1002251) writes "In a jam-packed meeting room in Las Vegas today, NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang spoke about the massive influx of mobile computing devices over the last few years and NVIDIA’s plans to better infiltrate the burgeoning market moving forward. During the address, Mr. Huang spoke almost about the company’s Tegra 2 processor and its capabilities, although he also dropped a bombshell to close his talk about NVIDIA’s “Project Denver.” Denver is not an x86 device, but rather a custom designed, high-performance ARM core that will target the HPC space. Though low-power ARM architecture hasn’t been geared for the HPC space, instead finding its way into a myriad of mobile devices and smartphones, NVIDIA aims to change that by pairing a custom core with their high performance GPU on a single SoC. NVIDIA's Denver chip is in a good position potentially if the company can execute, especially in light of Microsoft’s announcement earlier today that the next version of Windows will support next-gen System on a Chip (SoC) architectures from Intel, AMD, and ARM."
