INtel will be giving it away to gain market share.
Bottom line is it's a growing market and competition is good for it.
"the story is clearly an Intel pitch-sheet paraphrase when they try to bring Altera FPGAs into the mix. FPGAs have a quarter century history of great potential and disappointing reality."
First off, FPGAs really weren't dense enough until Altera's latest generation.
Question is how INtel will use it ?? Not really much is known about integration vs separates.
And.... if you spend all that developer time to get a FPGA right... why use the Xeon Phi ??
Software moves very fast compared to hardware design, and the people doing HPC will
often put their developer time as priority and just buy more hardware to increase throughput.
Altera's new Stratix 10 offers some very dense devices.
Altera's main customers are in cell towers.
They were included for INtel is going to market some kind of combined FPGA/Xeon strategy.
INtel wants it to be talked about.
Honestly, it's up to how well INtel combines it all. It's a new strategy and time will tell
You're throwing spaghetti against the wall hoping something sticks.
NVidia won't enter markets based on price alone. There's no $$ there.
Have you seen AMD eat away into NVidia margins ?? Or was it analysis based on nothing ??
NVidia competes against AMD price by offering a better bang for the buck... even at higher price.
And.... your small portion analysis doesn't have a clue that NVidia makes most of its profits in the high end.
IMO, you bought to much into AMD spin...
wiill_amd_yu... get your head out of the sand !!!!!
AMD has negative EPS you BUFFOON !!!!!
The rest of your analysis is based on nothing hoping on weak spin...
Look at NVDA stock price to show how feeble your efforts are at misdirection...
"Also, this actually benefits nvidia's margins on the high end because they will sell
more, but may hurt on the mid end."
"You didn't even think about what I said, "
See above !!!
"All I'm saying is that Nvidia could be in a better position if AMD had continued it's path of trying to compete with Nvidia at the high end."
Huh ??? the opposite !!!!
"All AMD did was hurt both companies profits."
Conclusion based on nothing !!!
Again you're back to throwing spaghetti against the wall hoping something sticks...
Went from curve balls from AMD to desperate attempt at something... anything...
