Nvidia CEO: An Extended Q&A

Here's an extended version of our interview with Jen-Hsun Huang, CEO of Nvidia, the leading maker of graphics chips for gamers.
Video games and their demand for better graphics has made Jen-Hsun Huang's Nvidia into one of the hottest chip companies. But Huang doesn't fare so well when he is playing video games with his 16-year-old son and his 15-year-old daughter. They have an unfair advantage because they can invest more time in Counter-Strike Source than he can. But Huang says the game that he likes the most is called "Nvidia.'' Huang sat down with me to discuss the impact he sees the graphics chip having in future technologies. (photo credit: Len Lehman)

What are some things to know about you?

My priorities are my family and my company and that's it. My perfect day is spending time with just my family, deciding what to cook for dinner, going grocery shopping, cooking dinner and opening a bottle of wine. My daughter goes downstairs and picks out a bottle of wine. She has wonderful taste. We all cook dinner and eat in front of a movie. I'm incredibly proud of my kids. I'm glad they are wonderful people and I'm glad they can do something -- as black belts -- beyond anything I've been able to do. They can be so good at their karate. The most important thing to know about a CEO is you can't be successful unless your family and in particular your wife wants you to be successful.

They're not really leading maker of GPU's if you compare it down to the best one on the market.

ATI 1900 XTX is the best choice for PC, it kicks the Nvidia topcard for sure.
360 GPU is like the top 1900 XTX but with an extra 10 MB fast embedded ram on top of that. A customized GPU that's nowhere the standard PSZero Nvidia 7900 ripp-off.

So what's this site about. About the truth or about someones daughter? What a dull newsitem this is

the RSX "Reality Synthesizer," which is based on Nvidia technology. The GPU will be capable of 128bit pixel precision and 1080p resolution--some of the highest HD resolution around. The RSX also has 512MB of graphics render memory and is capable of 100 billion shader operations and 51 billion dot products per second. It also has more than 300 million transistors, larger than any processor commercially available today. It will be manufactured using the 90nm process, with eight layers of metal. The RSX is more powerful than two GeForce 6800 Ultra video cards, which would cost roughly $1,000 total if purchased today

----------------------------- ---------------

Cell is a multicore chip 8 cores with one dorment, and the RSX has been said to be a multicore as well it was written on the Powerpoint presentation at the first PS3 E3 press conferance.

what was also stated there is that the RSX will have access to 512MB from the RDRAM as well.

you X-bots keep ignoring the fact that RSX has 2 bus's? And that fact that PS3 has more then twice the system bandwidth then 360?

And RDRAM is the fastest friggin ram geez what more do ya want no wait states and no need for Direct Ram its better. with speeds up to 8ghz RDRAM is better set than the newly being created GDDR3.

If you have questions LOOK IT UP.

ATI does not even have the top single card solution considering that NVidia has the dual-graphics processor 7950 GX2 which clearly outperforms any single card solution from ATI. In addition, ATI's crossfire is soundly beaten by NVidia's SLI across the board. Your facts are clearly off.

Lets me ask you what the hell you're talking about... Is your name stand for Mark BS? Sound like all of your comment is BS... You post BS but can proof it.... You're such a moron.
