Feeling confident after the huge success of slipping nVIDIA graphics into Apple’s mobility line, Jen-Hsun Huang is now setting his sights even more firmly on Intel. In an interview reported on by The Inquirer, he claims that nVIDIA will soon be an equal partner with Intel. The reasons include the longer running time of a Macbook Air with a GPU, the ARM-based Tegra processor which may make up half of nVIDIA’s sales in the relatively near future and of course OpenCL. He does not mention CUDA, which makes sense when tackling Intel and the Atom; it would make sense to continue to improve that language until Larrabee makes its appearance.
