Threat Detection Technology
Chipzilla has been sharing some of its ideas to use the GPU to detect new classes of threats.
Settlement wrapped in a paper
Last year Nvidia stopped getting so called licensing money from Intel. After five years the financial injection was delivered in total. This all came after the Intel and Nvidia conflict that started over chipsets, but essentially was a settlement that ended up being called licensing. It never was GPU licensing.
We have been sitting on this piece of information for a while, but maybe it's the right time to share it with you. Navi 7nm the 2019 chip will not be a high end GPU, it will be a quite powerful performance/mainstream chip.
Current plan: will never be
Many AMD fanboys hoped that Vega 7 nm would be a GPU that could make Vega more competitive to Nvidia's offering.
As Motley Fool suggested
Ashraf Eassa from Motley Fool has released the info that an Intel discrete GPU will be for gaming. Fudzilla can add that gaming was always in the plan and that AI is the key. Just bear one thing in mind, Intel is very serious on edge computing and Intel's improved IGP will play a crucial part in the scheme.
The one after 2018 Turing
Fudzilla wants to make something clear. Ampere is not a mining GPU, it is not a gaming, and it is not an AI-focused Tensor Core GPU, it is all of the above, and comes after Turing 2018 GPU.
The boss of the outfit named after a Roman vengeance demon, Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang took to the stage at GTC to unveil some GPU-powered innovations for machine learning, including a new AI supercomputer and an updated version of the company's Tesla V100 GPU that now has 32GB of onboard HBM2 memory.
No plans to make an actual product
The tech press became rather excited last week when Intel started showing off a new GPU with some even claiming it would change the industry. It turns out that Intel has no real interest in changing the industry for now.
We shouldn't be surprised, but GPU sales have skyrocketed over the last few quarters. Our colleagues from the press have criticized AMD for Radeon Vega, but AMD sold every single one. Once the market sucked all Radeons, it went for Geforce GTX 1060, 1070, 1080 so pretty much anything that can mine well.
Without pointing any fingers and naming any names, Fudzilla had confirmation that Raja Koduri's successor to run the graphics side of the business will come from outside of AMD.
