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.

I've owned mostly Intel CPU the last 8 years and haven't looked back at AMD since the K7 days.

I'm just sick and tired of Intel's lock on the desktop and notebook market. Luckily Intel skipped the mobile market and now they're working on it.

Intel is the biggest bully in the tech industry.
