"According to the latest figures from Mercury Research, Intel has managed to maintain its position in the x86 processor market, with an impressive 81 percent share in Q1. AMD grabbed 18.2 percent and the results for both outfits remained flat compared to previous quarters. In Q4 2010 Intel had an 81 percent share and an 81.2 percent share in Q1 2010. AMD’s share also remained largely unchanged and VIA is still stuck with a sub-1 percent share."
"In a move that shouldn't be that surprising, NVIDIA has announced that its popular CUDA platform is being ported to x86. The obvious angle here is that this will give NVIDIA a weapon against OpenCL and DirectCompute in the high-performance computing (HPC) market, but the situation is probably more complicated than that. First, let's look at what CUDA is and how it became popular, and then we'll look at where it's going." | more
Despite persistent rumors, Nvidia's chief executive says the graphics chip supplier is not working on an Intel-compatible chip. n an exclusive interview with CNET Thursday, I asked CEO Jen-Hsun Huang about the possibility of Nvidia coming up with its own x86 (Intel-compatible) chip technology, after the company reported strong third-quarter earnings. A recurring rumor has it that Nvidia is developing a chip that would be able to run the same software that runs on all Intel- and AMD-based PCs worldwide.
The rumors have once again surfaced that Nvidia Corp. may enter the x86-based microprocessor market.
For some time, there have been reports that Nvidia would enter the x86-based fray to protect its bread-and-butter graphics chip business. Advanced Micro Devices Inc. and Intel Corp. are separately developing processors with graphics capabilities.
