Nvidia reportedly prepping new gaming device

  • BBC reports Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA) is working on a new gaming system that runs on its high-end Tegra K1 processor. Nvidia, for its part, only says it has an "awesome new gaming product that is launching soon."
  • Like the Shield handheld console (launched last year, has seen limited sales), the rumored device runs Android games, and allows PCs sporting high-end Nvidia GPUs to stream games for playback on TV sets.
  • Engadget previously reported the Shield's successor will be a tablet. As with the Shield, Nvidia is likely looking to provide a proof-of-concept to drive interest in hardware requiring powerful mobile processors or PC GPUs.

    bla ... bla... bla ...
    From other thread on SA
    Hey - this was about perfectly timed:

     

    http://bit.ly/1kWgMbn

     

    "H-P (HPQ +0.6%) will offer a quality $199 Windows laptop for the holidays, Microsoft (MSFT +0.3%) COO Kevin Turner promises at his company's partner conference. Turner also says H-P will sell 7" and 8" Windows tablets for $99, and that Toshiba will sell a $249 notebook with an 11.6" screen and 32GB SSD."

     

    Fingers crossed that HP quality laptop uses Mullins.

     

    AMD and HP did this once before with the DM1Z

    If you put windows at 0 and some more efforts from HP and AMD
    you have the 199 quality laptop from HP ot the 99 windows laptop

    Cheapest Windows HP are based on AMD so its logic that HP goes with AMD
    Also using Beema and/or Mullins is a Plus, since they are the same Console cores !!!!

     

    AMD and INTC may be in for this Quality low price laptop, but where NVDA fits in this products ?

    LOL. Blah...blah...blah...The answer to your question is "nowhere!" Nvidia isn't interested in being in low cost, low margin products. They are, and have been for a little over a year now, finally focused across all segments with a unified corporate mission...to be the best, specialized graphics-intensive chipmaker for high-end products and yes, like I said, higher profit margins. Think I'm wrong, nevermind they've already proved it by walking away from Xbox and Playstation...Nvidia instead is focused on the 60% of all gamers that play on PCs...Nvidia GRID...IBM-partnership and others with Tesla...and in mobile, you'll have products like the soon to be released/revealed Google Project Tango specialized tablet for targeted-markets run on Tegra's K1. I could got on about the $2 billion dollar backlog with the largest automobile company in the world, Volkswagen (who also make Audi and Porsche), as well as Tesla's electric cars...AMD is a nowhere company with nowhere vision. Let them scratch for what market share they can muster against Intel to sell thousands of chips for low profit margin products that are constantly being squeezed by the big boys in order to secure entry into the next console...the next low price tablet.

    Project Tango from Google is higher profit and margins ?

     

    This:
    "Gaming system that runs on its high-end Tegra K1 processor"
    "the rumored device runs Android games"

     

    Also Higher profit High margins ?

     

    Focus..... vision ......

     

    Let say, at best, that they are doing the same........

     

    IBM is also looking new niches...... POWER8 is very good tech, much better than INTC and even though INTC largely dominates servers.

     

    Even though I think that are markets like Automobile which have good future for NVDA.
    NVDA like the other companies including Intel and AMD must constantly work and innovate to survive....

    Well it can't be a much more stupid idea than the Shield thing. Still wondering why NVDA wants to keep wasting its shareholders' money on trying going its own way with gaming systems though, that low margin space is crowded enough by the established big boys already.
