Nvidia-Branded CPUs might be a possibility in near future - [hardware]

With its recent $40 billion acquisition of ARM, NVIDIA may soon hop into the CPU market segment with its own processors based on a custom ARM-based architecture. The information was hinted in an interview with NVIDIA's CEO, Jensen Huang, by Timothy Prickett Morgan of The Next Platform in which Jensen highlighted what the future holds with ARM residing with the green team.

"Will you actually take an implementation of something like Neoverse first and make an Nvidia-branded CPU to drive it into the data center? Will you actually make the reference chip for those who just want it and actually help them run it?"

"Well, the first of all you've made an amazing observation, which is all three options are possible. So now with our backing and Arm's serious backing, the world can stand on that foundation and realize that they can build server CPUs. Now, some people would like to license the cores and build a CPU themselves. Some people may decide to license the cores and ask us to build those CPUs or modify ours."

"It is not possible for one company to build every single version of them," Huang continued, "but we will have the entire network of partners around Arm that can take the architectures we come up with and depending on what's best for them, whether licensing the core, having a semi-custom chip made, or having a chip that we made, any of those any of those options are available. Any of those options are available, we're open for business and we would like the ecosystem to be as rich as possible, with as many options as possible."

As per the interview, Jensen states that they are not only open for custom orders but also for CPUs developed solely by them. It is clearly stated that datacenter seems to be the first market that NVIDIA would like to tackle. NVIDIA will also develop its own ecosystem around the CPUs whether it be for datacenter applications or more consumer-oriented platforms. With that said, this also opens up the possibility of a future lineup dedicated towards the consumer segment where Intel & AMD have dominated for several decades.

These are definitely exciting times but don't expect any NVIDIA CPU for the time being. There are roadmaps to be formulated and chips to be designed before NVIDIA could make a formal entry in to the segment.
