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.

Yes, but as has already been stated. The smartphone market is already much bigger than desktops. More people use them and many people have multiple for whatever purpose.
A central syncing device, whether in the cloud, or at your home is only necessary if the devices can't coordinate amongst themselves.
Desktops might be replaced by smart-TVs. An idea that was thrown out before, but wasn't marketed well. I think the success will only be seen by how upgradeable it is and how modular it is. Meaning, if something happens to the TV itself, can you salvage anything by putting old parts in a new TV.
Already, the line between monitor and TV is thin. It's a matter of subtle improvement and combination of features. Much like the smartphone did to the Palm Pilot/Pocket PC.
"Well, there may be a reason why they call them 'Mac' trucks! Windows machines will not be trucks." -- Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer
