New NVIDIA/ARM partnership code-named Project Denver, targets PCs and supercomputers
NVIDIA, makers of the powerful
Tegra 2 dual-core processor
, yesterday at CES announced a partnership with ARM -- code-named "Project Denver" -- to build ARM-based CPU cores that could power PCs, servers, and supercomputers.
"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," said Jen-Hsun Huang, president and CEO of NVIDIA,
in a press release
In fact, the project entails the NVIDIA CPU running the ARM instruction set, fully integrated on the same chip as the NVIDIA GPU. In addition, NVIDIA has obtained the rights to develop its own CPU cores based on ARM's future processor architecture. While the Tegra 2 combines two Cortex A9, NVIDIA now has also licensed ARM's Cortex A15 for future Tegra models.
"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," Huang said.

heck, given the power of some of these lower end cpu's, they are almost good enough for general desktop use. i mean even now word or excel is waiting on you most of the time as it is.
i can even see business desktops going away and heading back to a more mainframe type approach from years past where its little more then a terminal on the users station.
also, i can see the performance market being completely swallowed by the workstation market. as it is now they already blur into each other.
