So, why move to Nvidia? Because the supercomputer / HSA space offers a much more fertile ground for the kinds of improvements that heterogeneous compute can offer. CUDA is already well-established, AMD doesn’t seem to have any serious plans to attack the market in the near-term future, and Rogers likely wants to see the improvements he’s designed bear fruit in actual shipping software.
NVDA 7-yr HIGH
AMD all-time LOW
"es, that would be known as a contrarian indicator. Thank you."
Rather straight forward & obvious to everyone else. Your welcome.
How much have you lost on AMD ??
"(sigh) I can't pick on a woman"
(sigh) I'm gonna start posting on the AMD board how stupid the AMD longs are.
Repeat: How much have you lost on AMD ??
"I haven't lost anything. "
Hard to believe when you're here venting post after post...
OK then, what is your position on AMD ??
If you were making money... Cornelius wouldn't be able to get to you...
"I'm responding to Cornelius' comment on the AMD board"
I thought the Cornelius alias is to chase 'will_amd_yu' around the yahoo boards...
My lord... are you long AMD ??
"I wouldn't invest in Nvidia"
If you're not long, and not short... what are you doing here ??
The longs here have done very well without your advice...
" I invest in stocks on the long side, but not Nvidia"
Evidence is your were wrong about NVDA
"Both Qualcomm and Samsung are coming out with their own GPUs.
AMD saw no need to sue them, why did Nvidia need to sue them?"
The lawsuit with Qualcomm is to get out royalties to Qualcomm with communications.
AMD & NVidia lawsuits would cripple both companies.
No one yet has any idea why NVidia has a lawsuit against Samsung ???
Maybe it's for a negotiation we're not aware of ??
You're right on other posts that NVidia's days of sweet licensing deal from INtel is almost over.
Fellow NVDA longs blast me for bringing this up...
"I've come here to tell you I can't invest in a patent troll about to lose Intel's IP
revenue that has no serious HSA or full hardware async compute capabilities."
How much did you lose on your short ??
"I'm asking you how Nvidia invented the GPU?"
Moving functions done by SW on the CPU
to dedicated HW on a chip separate from the CPU.
South Korean publication Business Korea is claiming NVIDIA will source HBM2 memory for its next-gen Pascal GPU architecture from both Samsung and SK Hynix.
According to the report, Samsung and SK Hynix will both start mass producing second-gen High Bandwidth Memory (HBM2) for NVIDIA’s Pascal GPU by Q1 2016. A pilot production run and reliability tests are expected to be completed by the end of this year.
NVIDIA’s chief rival AMD already has products in the market using first-gen HBM, supplied by SK Hynix. The second-gen HBM will offer even better performance though, as it is claimed to process data twice as fast as the first-gen HBM modules. Storage capacity of the 8Gb HBM is also claimed to have increased fourfold.
Apart from use in NVIDIA’s Pascal GPU, HBM2 modules from Samsung and SK Hynix are also expected to be used in servers, supercomputers, networks, and high-performance PCs starting early next year. In the near future, they will also be used in other digital consumer products such as video game consoles.
TSMC will make all of the microprocessors for the iPhone 7 that is due to debut in 2016 using its 16nm
TSMC will make all of the microprocessors for the iPhone 7 that is due to debut in 2016 using its 16nm FinFET manufacturing process
Taiwan's Commercial Times referenced unnamed people in Apple's supply chain as sources for the story.
This would represent a rejection for Samsung and Globalfoundries – its partner in 14nm FinFET manufacturing. Samsung is thought to have a 50 percent share of production of the current processor, the A9 which is shipping in the recently launched iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. It would also be a bounce back into Apple's favor for TSMC.
Mass production of the A10 processor is expected to start in March 2016 so that parts can be ready for the iPhone 7 to launch in about September 2016. In addition Apple's A10 will use TSMC's integrated fan-out (InFO) wafer-level packaging technology
"I own ASML. KLAC and LRCX - for some time"
NVDA has outperformed all of them !!!! - for some time
NVDA pays a dividend too :)
All on inferior fabs to INtel... Oh My...
