Photo by Sam Byford / The Verge Microsoft, Google, and Qualcomm have been raising concerns to regulators about Nvidia’s Arm acquisition, according to reports by CNBC and Bloomberg. The companies have approached regulators in the US, EU, UK, and China, reportedly with concerns that Nvidia could change how Arm licenses out its chipmaking technology. Nvidia has pledged that it won’t use its control over the company to change how it interacts with other businesses. Writing to the Financial Times, Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang said he could “unequivocally state that Nvidia will maintain Arm’s open licensing model. We have no intention to ‘throttle’ or ‘deny’ Arm’s supply to any customer.” Nvidia’s rivals argue, however, that keeping Arm neutral and not using its tech to Nvidia’s... Continue reading…
When we published our BIGLIST of 50 top B2B marketing events a year ago, we had no way of knowing the disruption the pandemic would soon bring to in-person conferences. A year later virtual events are still the norm, with the promise of physical meetings a wee glimmer of hope on the horizon.

What could be NVIDIA’s biggest GPU generation could turn out to be a massive sales headache. It might very well still be its greatest, at least as far as CEO Jensen Huang is concerned, but the supply problem of its latest GeForce RTX 30-series cards could leave some PC buyers and gamers rather disappointed. Even worse, however, is the chief … Continue reading
Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang announced that demand for GeForce RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 graphics cards has so outstripped supply that shortages will last into 2021
Photo by Tom Warren / The Verge If you are looking to get your hands on an Nvidia RTX 3080 or 3090 graphics card, you’re probably going to have to wait until 2021. Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang announced today that the company expects shortages for both graphics cards will continue to for the remainder of the year, Tom’s Hardware and Wccftech reports. During a Q&A with press to cover its GTC announcements, Huang responded to the continuous shortages for both graphics cards. “I believe that demand will outstrip all of our supply through the year,” Huang said. “Even if we knew about all the demand, I don’t think it’s possible to have ramped that fast” The RTX 3080 and 3090 had extremely rough launches, with both cards selling out within minutes of preorders going live, but...

Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang again apologized for the shortage of Ampere-based RTX 3000 series cards at GTC 2020, but didn't offer a timeline for new stock.
Photo by Anton Novoderezhkin\TASS via Getty Images Nvidia’s $40 billion acquisition of Arm is a hugely significant deal for the tech world, with implications that will take years to unravel spanning many areas of the sector. But if you listened to the press babble coming from the two companies over the last 24 hours, you’d think there was only one factor driving the purchase: artificial intelligence. “AI is the most powerful technology force of our time. It’s the automation of automation, where software writes software,” Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang told journalists during a press call this morning. “Together, [Nvidia and Arm are] going to create the world’s premier computing company for the age of AI.” “We now look at a world ahead of us that is defined by AI.” On the same call moments...

Nvidia today revealed its latest line of graphics cards, called the RTX 30 series. With three new cards on the way, two of them relatively inexpensive, Nvidia promises they’ll be the next step-up for PC gaming — and from what we’ve seen, it certainly looks like it can back up that claim. The specs for the GPUs were, by and large, leaked ahead of time, but seeing them in the flesh (figuratively speaking) was still a treat. The star of the show was the RTX 3080, powered by its new Ampere architecture. Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang revealed the card and… This story continues at The Next Web

There's more speculation that Nvidia would buy Arm, with the Financial Times reporting on Friday that the chip giant plans to offer more than $32 billion for the chip design company. Such an acquisition would definitely expand Nvidia's reach in the semiconductor market, giving it more firepower against rivals Intel and AMD, veteran industry analysts told Business Insider. But such a deal would also face intense regulatory scrutiny, they said, and could hurt Arm's relationship with existing customers. "The regulatory and the customer backlash I think will be significant," Bernstein analyst Stacy Rasgon told Business Insider. Click here for more BI Prime stories. Speculation that chip giant Nvidia could buy Arm from Softbank intensified Friday with a report that it planned to offer more than $32 billion for the chip design company. The Financial Times report was greeted with some skepticism by some veteran semiconductor industry analysts, even as they also noted how it could be a game changer for Nvidia. Buying Arm would give the chipmaker access to highly valuable intellectual property that it could use to take on new markets, including servers and supercomputers, analysts say. "If Nvidia were to buy it, they would gain significant power in the marketplace," IDC President Crawford Del Prete told Business Insider. "Nvidia gains the ability to control the source code of Arm, arguably the most popular CPU [computer processing unit] architecture on the planet in terms of volume." Arm became a tech powerhouse by introducing a power-efficient chip architecture that became widely used in the mobile market, outpacing semiconductor giant Intel. Arm-based chips have also become important in the data center market.  Arm would also give Nvidia "more control over the direct intellectual  roadmap which Nvidia often leverages," said analyst Ben Bajarin of Creative Strategies Inc. "Perhaps they could leverage it to start going after server central processing unit [chips], which is what many have speculated," he said, which would enable them to take on Intel and AMD in a critical market.  Nathan Brookwood of Insight64, a market research firm focused on the semiconductor industry, said owning Arm would enhance Nvidia's position in high-performance computing, given the gains of Arm-based processors in that market. "Tighter integration between Nvidia and Arm could lead to more powerful supercomputers," he told Business Insider, noting that this could be bad news for Intel. "If Nvidia takes share in this market, it will come at Intel's expense." An Nvidia-Arm merger would "could accelerate the growth of Arm-based PCs," he added. "This would impact both Intel and AMD." But analysts agree that such a deal would be tough to pull off for Nvidia. The marketplace power Nvidia would gain by buying Arm "would bring into question the idea of fair competition and antitrust," Del Prete said. Particularly now: Nvidia's reported interest in acquiring Arm comes amid heightened antitrust scrutiny of the tech industry, underscored by the grilling this this week of the CEOs of Apple, Amazon, Facebook, and Google before the House of Representatives' antitrust subcommittee. Bernstein analyst Stacy Rasgon echoed the point, telling Business Insider, "The regulatory and the customer backlash I think will be significant." Arm makes money by licensing its technology to different chipmakers, including the giants of the industry. "The value proposition of Arm is that they're independent," Rasgon said. "I can't imagine any of our customers would be happy to see any of Arm's customers purchasing it." Brookhood also raised the issue of Arm's independence, saying, "Arm is currently a 'neutral' player in the industry." "Customers of an Nvidia-owned Arm would never be sure its policies and design initiatives were not being overly influenced by what's good for Nvidia, as opposed to what's good for Arm's customers and industry partners," he told Business Insider. Del Prete speculated that Nvidia could decide to maintain Arm as "a separate entity in order to keep other suppliers engaged at least for the near term." Bajarin raised a similar point as he noted that an Nvidia-Arm merger "may be tricky given the nature that Nvidia competitors use Arm's intellectual property." "If there was a clean way to keep this separate, it could work out," he said. Got a tip about Nvidia, Arm or another tech company?

Video games and demand from hyperscale datacenter chip customers drove Nvidia‘s third quarter ended October 27 to beat earnings and revenue estimates on Wall Street.Santa Clara, California-based Nvidia posted non-GAAP earnings per share of $1.78, compared to analyst expectations of $1.57 a share.“Our gaming business and demand from hyperscale customers powered Q3’s results,“ said Jensen Huang, founder and CEO of Nvidia, in a statement.“The realism of computer graphics is taking a giant leap forward with Nvidia RTX.”He added, “This quarter, we have laid the foundation for where AI will ultimately make the greatest impact.We extended our reach beyond the cloud, to the edge, where GPU-accelerated 5G, AI and IoT will revolutionize the world’s largest industries.
Back at Gamescom 2018, when Nvidia came on stage and unveiled its Turing graphics cards, I admittedly got sucked into the marketing.When Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang started demoing the real-time ray tracing that these cards could pull off, my mind automatically started jumping to the possibilities.Just imagine a horror game in the vein of Amnesia: The Dark Descent but with ray traced shadows.However, once the graphics card made its way to my doorstep, I had to wait a while to see what ray tracing looked like.This is, of course, while enjoying the amazing 4K gaming performance, so it wasn't all a loss.However, at Gamescom 2019, I got a chance to see what the future of ray tracing will look like, if only just a glimpse.
Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang is feeling pretty confident about ray tracing, and suggests that you’d be crazy to buy a graphics card without the feature in 2019.Of course, Nvidia would say that, with its RTX 20 series of GPUs all sporting the feature – and something that rival AMD doesn’t yet have in its graphics cards (though it’s likely to bring out ray tracing GPUs in the future), but with a number of new games being announced at Gamescom 2019 that support ray tracing, the feature is looking increasingly attractive.These are the best Nvidia graphics cards money can buyThe comment from Huang came in a webcast following Nvidia’s recent earnings announcement.In it, he suggests that if you’re “going to buy a new graphics card, and it’s going to the last 2, 3, 4 years to not have ray tracing is just crazy.”While Nvidia’s CEO saying you should buy an Nvidia product isn’t too surprising, we have to admit it does make sense in a way.
“Real-time ray tracing adoption has reached “a tipping point”Nvidia has bounced back to beat Q2 expectations posting a decent result despite revenue being down year-over-year.The Santa Clara GPU specialists posted revenues of $2,579 billion (£2.1 billion) down 17 percent year-on-year.The earnings were a lift from the previous quarter, however, which saw the company struggle amidst a slowing Chinese market and a collapsing cryptocurrency bubble that dragged down GPU sales.Jensen Huang, founder and CEO of Nvidia commented in a release that: “We achieved sequential growth across our platforms.”“Nvidia accelerated computing momentum continues to build as the industry races to enable the next frontier in artificial intelligence, conversational AI, as well as autonomous systems like self-driving vehicles and delivery robots.”
Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang said that AI would drive long-term demand because it is the “single most powerful force of our time.”Nvidia reported earnings and revenues that beat analysts’ expectations as demand for graphics and artificial intelligence chips picked up in the second fiscal quarter.But he said it would take a while to translate into huge results for applications such as self-driving cars, which is coming in the final, long-term wave of AI growth.Nvidia reported earnings per share of $1.24 on revenues of $2.58 billion in the second fiscal quarter ended July 31.Huang said gaming is going through a revival thanks to the real-time ray tracing technology in the company’s latest RTX graphics chips and Turing architecture.But as RTX has waterfalled through the product line and become cheaper, gamers are picking it up, helping to produce $1.3 billion in gaming revenue in the quarter.
Nvidia Turing has been around for nearly a year now, revealed back at Gamescom 2018.However, once Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang unveiled the pricing for the RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti at $799 (£749, AU$1,199) and $1,199 (£1,099, AU$1,899), respectively, it felt like the price of entry was higher than ever before – because, well, it was.And, once we got the graphics cards in our hands, while they were certainly powerful, with the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti finally capable of powering the 4K 60 frames per second (fps) dream we've had for years, the high price tags meant they were hard to recommend.So, now that the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Super has finally arrived and the Nvidia Turing lineup is finally complete (for now), we thought it was about time to take a step back to see if Nvidia Turing is worth it for most people.Is it time you lived the rest of your life ray traced?Or, is the high price still worth holding out for something better?
Hundreds of engineers in the Volvogruppen, and Nvidia will do in the transport sector, self-driven."Something magical is going to happen," said Nvidia's ceo Jensen Huang.
