More on Nvidia: The chipmaker has updated its mobile processor/GPU roadmap. The next Tegra processor (after the Tegra 4), codenamed Logan, will enter production early next year, contain a Kepler GPU (found in PCs), and support Nvidia's CUDA GPU computing tech. Its successor, Parker, is expected to arrive in 2015. It'll include a Project Denver ARM CPU (much-delayed), as well as a GPU based on Nvidia's next-gen Maxwell architecture, which will find its way into PCs in 2014. Maxwell's successor, Volta, will support PC GPUs with stacked DRAM. (live blog)

    NVDA needs to speed up its development times and release dates.

    Whitehawk,

     

    Developing processors is hard.

    Excuse me, Tegra 5 which is what Logan is, will be ahead of the curve with Tegra 4 being a little behind schedule. So Logan is clearly mapped out on schedule as far as I can tell. If you are just too impatient, move on.

     

    With what was shown today you only can go so fast with the ramp up in power and efficiency in balance and they are ahead in terms of Moore's Law exponentially.

    It's not as easy as coming up with a new menu item for Taco Bell.

    I would like to see the power efficiency of Kepler Tegra. That would be way cool, running crysis 3 graphics on a mobile. But I do not believe it until I see it. How they will shrink Kepler die to fit the power of 2000mah mobile battery.

    They'll probably be using drastically fewer GPU cores than what is found on a desktop/laptop...

    Actually, if you caught the part of the investor's call that I heard, Jen actually said the combination of die cast, ie 28nm then 20nm, and having more GPU cores, not less will make the power efficiency better. I think there is some confusion between the use of the ARM processors and the GPU cores for power efficiency which Jen addressed in that call. That's where I believe Project Denver and the 64 bit modified or 'rebuilt' ARM processor will provide the real efficiencies needed to compliment the GPU cores. If you listen to how Jen describes it, the number of GPU cores actually isn't the real concern for battery life.

    Macros seem to be teeter tottering with the EU problems.

     

    I might have to agree with Michael, but I'm looking at the Technicals very frequently and carefully.

     

    In General, "go away in May" seems to be the policy for this year except it has come a little early.
