Following reports of NVIDIA's venture into the PC market with its own Arm-based CPUs, brand-new information have actually emerged that recommend that the green group will be partnering with MediaTek and making use of the 2.5 D product packaging innovation from CoWoS for its very first processors that match Apple and Intel.
NVIDIA Might Partner With MediaTek and TSMC For Its First Arm-Based PC CPUs
Today started with a substantial report by Reuters which specified that NVIDIA & AMD were going to go all-in on the Arm bandwagon to complete versus Apple & Intel. The news was rapidly followed by Morgan Stanley reporting that NVIDIA might perhaps deal with Meaditek for its very first Arm-based CPU architecture focused on the customer PC sector. There are likewise reports that an main follow-up on this matter might come as early as this Friday in an interview by Medatek.
Now, Chinese tech outlet, UDN (pointing out Morgan Stanley), is reporting that NVIDIA and MediaTek will be co-partnering to develop the extremely first test chips that use TSMC's sophisticated CoWoS innovation which suggests that we may be taking a look at a chipset-esque style. The very first test chips are anticipated to be made in the 2nd quarter of 2024 and will get in the high-end note pad market.
It is likewise reported that the NVIDIA and MediaTek chips will co-package the CPU and GPU on the exact same interposer so we are most likely taking a look at an Arm-based CPU and a discrete GPU chiplet utilizing NVIDIA's own graphics architectures.
NVIDIA's Tegra SOCs have actually been doing this for a while now, plus the business likewise has its Grace Hopper Superchips which integrate a high-end H100 GPU & Arm-based Grace CPUs together. The Tegra and the most current Orin SOC are primarily utilized for AI & robotics while the Superchips are utilized for HPC environments. There truly isn't a real chip by NVIDIA that can be utilized for the high-end note pad section to take on Apple and Intel.
MediaTek likewise has experience in the PC note pad market with its Kompanio Arm chips that serve the Chromebook market. A customized Arm architecture created by MediaTek & NVIDIA while utilizing NVIDIA's internal discrete GPU architecture can work fantastic for the high-end note pad sector. It will be a long time before we see these chips in action and based upon the earlier reports, 2025 is stated to be the launch timeframe for NVIDIA's CPUs so it's going to be a long trip nonetheless, these advancements are absolutely fascinating and more competitors in the PC section, the much better!
