Nvidia: Discrete GPU Market Set to Prosper for Years to Come.
Unless everything evolves differently: cheaper consoles are released more often and with keyboard/mouse support, tablets and smartphones feature some sort better input (other than the touch screen).
Most people buy laptops anyway.
- Intel is forced to maintain PCIE. Without it, they will lose 80% of their sales, and face pressure form goverment market regulators. Did you konow, they forced Intel to maintain PCIE for future ?
- Intel process is very advanced and very costly. Their CPU/GPU must be small (less than 200 sqmm) to be profitable. This is primary reason, they splitted Haswell graphics to two small cores (integrated and optionally external), instead of single large. Integrated graphics can reach levels copmparable to descrete low end, and this will not change.
- Graphics is not only few shaders included near CPU. NV have strong knowledge, experience, replationships, patents, track records and clear vision. Intel is low to NV in these areas, and this will not change for long time.
Hope this help
Or that x86 is here to stay. Many original licences for x86 are already long gone history so in next ten years nvidia could use x86 usefully only by agreement with AMD on their x86-64 Supposingly if that company aint gone in 10 years time.
AMD now sits at the nexus of both gaming and HSA. Expect Kaveri to be a next gen gaming gorilla. Expect it's excavator based successor to be a gaming Godzilla ... AND challenge Intel on the CPU front.
That means AMD APUs replacing Intel as the PC gamers chip of choice and AMD's HSA based graphics boards being the natural choice to accompany that APU.
That means the only people buying a discrete GPU card will be a very small percentage of consumers who are willing to dramatically over-pay for the privilege. Eventually they will surrender as GPU cards will cost many times more than an equal performing APU. That will be the end of Nvidia and that end is not too far off.
And as GPu goes 2,5x times better GPU HD7770 costs 25% less than top end APU So in budgetary view mode it's only a little bit more expensive to buy CPU scrap off "Athlon X4" based on same Trinity design and separate GPU than APU itself. And it many situations it could even consume less. APU is a great for a things like Playstation and XBOX and OEM market. If PC market is dead as pools trying to show for last few years then consoles are its successor and APU is really cutting down OEMs cost. Too bad if this would really become the truth but as media centers, consoles and various 5th grade gadgets come to market less and less people spends on a real computer as all that gadget crap is usually much cheaper for one time payment and comes ready out of the box. It's a crisis economics supported by close minded uneducated people and has nothing to do with "APU is great thing for PC theory".
All we will use in the future need to be appearing graphically.
Especially more and more sophisticated 3d graphic that help us to design and build new cities … in the future we need more powerful GPUs.
CUDA from the beginning until now and a few years more are the big thing.
The bad news for CUDA is the further acceptance of OpenCL from companies such as Adobe. This means that the gpgpu market in not a monopoly any more.
Those facts, considering the poor OpenCL performance of nVidia's cards, will add to a bigger headache for nVidia's people.
prevent the spread of Android.Main culprit for the decline of the PC market is Micorsoft.
