Fudzilla: Graphics to evolve into a co-processor...
Last week in Sunnyvale we had a chance to meet with Jen-Hsun Huang, the CEO and President of Nvidia, and once you get the chance to meet with such an industry leader, you try to learn about the company's vision and its future guidelines.
We asked him about how he sees Nvidia in the future and he simply replied that he sees the graphics card evolving into a co-processor.
The CPU will remain an important part of the computer, but the CPU of the future will take care of serial data, while the GPU becomes even more important as it can do a great job with data parallel applications. The CPU is better for serial work, while the GPU is better for parallel data and any job that can be subdivided in smaller time slices.
