Nvidia Tech Demonstration Reveals CPU Focus
The interesting thing though is that the company spent little to no time on its GPU tech. Nvidia CEO Jen-hsun Huang spoke hardly a word about any upcoming technology in the company's pipeline for GPUs.
What Nvidia did spend most of its time talking about though is its CUDA technology, which focuses entirely on general, highly parallel computing. Much of what Nvidia has been talking in the last year has been about CUDA. The company has received some industry criticism recently for not putting enough emphasis on its GPUs.
While in a press meeting, we even overhead several journalists saying that "Nvidia hasn't had a major GPU breakthrough since the 8800 GTX."
One thing's certain, Nvidia is putting a lot of emphasis on CUDA.
Despite this, Nvidia did make an attempt at showing off its 3D glasses technology. Unfortunately, the tech demo didn't quite work right and many in the crowd were left wondering if Nvidia even realized that the demo didn't work. Unfortunately, no one spoke up, and instead gave hesitant applause.
Could this really mean that AMD and Intel should safe guard their respective markets a bit more aggressively? Absolutely.
