CNet today reports that earlier this week at the company’s analyst day, Nvidia Chief Executive Officer Jen-Hsun Huang told attendees that GPGPUs are the future.
Huang went on to finger Apple as a trendsetter because of the company’s support for OpenCL and the importance the company’s laptops place on the GPU.
The news comes shortly after reports that the company has bagged its first big Tegra contract in the form of Microsoft’s latest itteration of the Zune, the Zune HD. Huang also told audience members that in a few years, Tegra could represent half of its business, with the rest divided up between the professional (Tesla and Quadro products) and the consumer GeForce markets.
Nvidia’s Tegra chipset is aimed at both laptops and mobile devices. While this year’s Computex saw plenty of Tegra-based laptops (as well as laptops based on Nvidia’s Ion chipset), we’re still waiting for a cellphone packing Tegra.
