Senior Analysts Tell Nvidia to Sell Business to Someone Else

Senior Analysts from Evercore and Needham apparently told Nvidia to sell the business [Tegra] to someone else before they hurt the company further. (NVIDIA, PC)

Sell Nvidia to ARM.

If that happens, we'll probably see AMD vs ARM, to determine the chip for PS5.

That would suck -.....- they are only talking about selling the tegra parts of nvidia not the whole.

They are not talking about selling Nvidia;the talk is to Nvidia to sell the Tegra development technology sector of the company. Arm and tegra will never get to the development power needed to go forward on new console technology if there ever going to be a new power on consoles or close systems will always be related to energy consumption,having the need of low power consumption will always put in risk what new tech can achieve before it burns.Tegra and Arm can only achive a certain degree of raw power before the chip burns and that raw power will never be enough for what we expect of new close systems like consoles 5 year from know.

Being in the consoles isn't really the big deal you think it is. Getting into devices like smartphones and tablets provide not only more sales but higher margins.

Most analysts are incompetent, that's why they are still analysts and not CEO or even managers yet.

I think you need to let Darkride66 know.
He still places a great deal of faith in analysts (when it suits his purpose).

The problem with Tegra is that it's gaming centric and thus runs damn hot and consume too much power.

But what happens if you don't play games too much.
IE: use it like a normal tablet/smartphone during normal day to day usage.
Maxor  +   748d ago
Most of the Nvidia's issues with Tegra came from the subpar performance of Tegra 3 devices like the first Nexus 7 and HTC One X which were fantastic for games but not so great for normal operations. These devices suffered from frequently UI lag and below average battery life. Since then both have abandoned Nvidia for Qualcomm chips.

Hence the problem with Nvidia and Tegra today. Not much is know about Tegra 4 because outside of their gaming handheld,there's almost nobody using it.
