What would an ARM laptop look like with an RTX graphics card? This is something NVIDIA is exploring with MediaTek, a company best known for building ARM chips. Together, they are building a benchmark laptop platform that will support Chromium, Linux, and NVIDIA SDKs (SDKs). While it’s unclear what, if anything, this partnership will lead to, it’s not hard to get excited about a next-gen Chromebook that’s lightweight, power-efficient, and equipped with hardware. NVIDIA ray-tracing RTX, although they inevitably end. to be stripped.
It’s also another way NVIDIA relies on ARM. Today, the company too announced an ARM-based chip named Grace, its first data center processor. The obvious enemy is Intel and its dominant x86 architecture, but AMD is a worthy competitor as well. If the rumors are true, and AMD decides to build its own ARM chip, it could easily integrate its Radeon graphics. And if that happens, NVIDIA will need a lot more than its Tegra hardware to compete.
“MediaTek is the world’s largest supplier of ARM chips, used to power everything from smartphones, Chromebooks and smart TVs,” MediaTek CEO Rick Tsai said in a statement. “We look forward to using our technology and working with NVIDIA to bring the power of GPUs to the PC ARM platform for gaming, content creation and more. GPU acceleration will be a huge boost. for the entire ARM ecosystem. ”
