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.




"Intel is investing heavily (think gazillions of dollars and bazillions of engineering man hours) in resources to create an Intel host controllers spec in order to speed time to market of the USB 3.0 technology." -- Intel blogger Nick Knupffer
