QOTD: Do You Want Nvidia to Make CPUs?

Things in life change, and so do things in the IT industry. The previous three or four years around the early 2000's, was somewhat slow in growth. But in the last two years, things have really picked up again.

This leads us to CPUs. Even in the CPU landscape, things are rapidly changing. Architectures are getting increasingly more efficient, clock for clock. But CPUs themselves aside, even manufacturers are changing. Just this year, AMD decided to spin-off its manufacturing arms into what's now known as Globalfoundries.

However, there's one quaint company, called Nvidia, that's been promoting how powerful its GPUs are for more than just graphics. But don't think of Nvidia's products as the traditional GPU anymore like they once were. With such things as CUDA, Nvidia represents a very powerful option for the future. Although Nvidia has denied much about creating a full-fledged CPU, I can tell you now that it's very possible. That said:

The question of the day is: Do you want Nvidia to make CPUs to compete with Intel and AMD?

There's no doubt, that this is a very hot topic.

    YES, competition is great for consumers.

    No Intel monopolies please.

    Sweet if they do. I just hope that does not cause Intel to decide to crush them out of existance.

    Competition leads to technology advancement and innovation , why not ?
    GOOOOO nVidia
  • deltatux
    Yes, the more competition the merrier for the industry and for consumers. In the end, we win!

    I think it would be good if they did. Sure their CPU's at first may not be amazing but if they offered them at a lower price and if they could make them the best bang for the buck then they could end up being a popular choice. This would also be great for us as the prices would lower and more selection is always a good thing.

    Of course, the more companies the better, competition is the best for everybody.

    Like most posters said competition is great for the consumers so why not !

    I smell an ATI FanBoy. I am pretty sure Nvidia compete enough to stay alive in the CPU game.

    I like how nVidia went from being the bad guy for their failing bumps (Geforce 8600 products) and unethical naming schemes (8800/9800/240, among others), to the good guy because they'll challenge Intel. I still think they're a borderline unethical company lead by a clinical psycho with a big mouth. That being said, competition is always a good thing, so long as Intel and the courts allow them to enter the competition.
