"--Getanid: who was frustrated for years, awaiting the arrival of Denver and complaining for years about NV's poor execution. It seems that his shares may have been called (along with J7 doing the same) by writing cheap 15 cents calls. I hope he did get back to NVDA and is enjoying the initial crop of fruit this stock has produced."
"I think that everybody has viewed GPU prowess as important (just ask ARMH, ImgTec, and QCOM)"
Are you aware that INtel has been attempting to commoditize the GPU for 20 yrs now ??
"then T4i becomes much less important in the grand scheme of things. "
"NVIDIA said itself at the JP Morgan Tech Forum that it has no intentions of competing with QCOM/MediaTek to be the low cost producer"
As you've noticed, Qualcomm doesn't make much on their HW, but gets their $$ from licensing.
"it wants to sell into markets where GPU prowess matters."
and bring GPU prowess into other markets.... make it matter where it didn't before...
Marsavian, thank you !!! That link led me to Ryan Shrout's excellent review
"Who cares, Logan K1 will tame an A15 quad into a proper low-power mobile chip."
Ya know, you made a compelling case for "who cares about Tegra 4i"...
for the action and innovation is with K1...
"Well, we finally got some details of PD hallelujah lol !"
Fair enough... still no Tegra 4i
"Nvidia did the right thing in going straight to the already available 28nm for PD"
Yes, it was the right thing, but it was probably targeted for 28nm a year ago and is just late...
" It's probably just because 32KB to 128KB is the sweet spot for L1 cache rather than following a 12 year old choice. "
"It seems logical that the instruction cache ends up larger than with other designs."
ARM ISA is a load/store, and makes sense for a larger I cache when wide issues
use a larger register set.
"Code translation designs expand the size of the instruction stream. They have the ability to combine several instructions into fewer steps, so each of those steps will be much more complex with wider native instructions."
Fixed-length instructions also make it easier to translate more code in parallel.
"Told you PD would not be suitable for low power mobile if they went the HPC route with it. "
"Expect Nvidia to continue this two model system with A57 and PD-2 going forward. "
"Expect to see it in Shield 2"
Mars... it's good to have you back :)
"No, they just need to get their designs right."
Yet INtel was out flanked yet again...No INtel fabs... No x86...
"If Intel has any prospects at all for mobile MSS in 2014 or 2015"
Open their fabs and they will own it all...
"I just cannot recommend this stock unless Krzanich can show a very credible roadmap for the future."
Open their fabs and they will own it all...
I want you to notice the PD cache sizes, I cache twice the size of D cache
Tegra 4, using ARM32 had equal cache sizes.
PD is a wide design taking advantage of fixed-length instructions vs x86 variable-length instructions
This is how ARM64 competes against x86...
also using the world's design teams to make better ARM64 cores than ARMH...
"Can't wait to get my hands on a Denver-powered tablet."
I hope you'll post your enthusiasm for an ARM based product on the INTC board...
No INtel fabs... No x86... and yet you want it...
"I don't know how Intel will compete with this thing using Bay Trail. Cherry Trail, too"
So it's more than just about the fabs...
btw, did you see the size of the PD
are you still naively entrenched there will be no PD core on Maxwell ??
You're a smart dude, so open your eyes !!!!
Let me answer that by doing what I do, and everyone should do, with all Wallis ids... (Ashraf, pay attention !!!!)
Another Wallis id going on IGNORE !!!!!!
Hey... you jumped in to a post about ARMH at a new 52 week HIGH !!!!
Was there another topic that you were actually responding to ??
Dude... you brought up all those points about yourself...
you made this post about you... all that fan mail fuels the ego...
"you haven't been paying attention"
Dude... ARMH is at a new 52 week HIGH !!!!!
And yet you claim victory...
"Loved the fan-mail I got from readers "
Dude... put that ego in check... how about the mail you got about your ARMH predictions...??
1. "Don't listen to Ashraf, he's just trying to mislead the folks"
You've written article after article predicting doom for ARMH
2. "You have ZERO real world experience"
3. "Wasn't college great, Ashraf the Green?"
Great times !!!!
