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.

Its not exactly the same situation now though is it?
PPC was essentially an IBM/Apple venture that never really materialized to more than Apple computers and IBM supercomputers.
ARM is already quite prevelent in the smartphone space, and is widely used low power integrated parts around the world.
ARM is also very cheap, it does not cost much at all to license.
This is a lot different than PPCvsIntel..

Actually you missed the most popular use of ARM, games consoles. PS3, Xbox 360, Wii and Gamecube all have them.
