    Certainly not too late for nVidia who can use ARM. Intel have their own IP so that's different.

    They tried with ARM in mobile and decided they'd be better off in automotive, using the same tech there initially (Drive PX2 obviously is a step up from there). I doubt they want to go after a high volume but low margin area where there's fierce competition already. That'd just be a money sink.

    Yeah I remember all of that edgy doom and gloom speculation too. The future is fusion or something right? ;)

    It's a shame NV just didn't have the influence to make Android gaming go somewhere . It has the potential to be more interesting than closed up boxes from Nintendo et al producing the standard selection of titles. Unfortunately the audience there really won't pay more than about $5 for any software and that's a tiny problem.

    I have a feeling this is due to NVIDIA deciding to not supply Tegra chips for infotainment anymore. That market is rapidly being comoditized and prices are falling below NVIDIA`s preferences. On the other hand the next Tegra chips (if the Tegra brand lives on at all, they have already started rebranding their official channels on it) will probably be overkill for infotainment anyway, since they are aiming for self driving cars. Intel chips are probably more than enough for infotainment by now, it's not like it needs a lot of computing power.

    The Intel deal is for the display & user controls. AMD would presumably be for the AI/compute module.

    I thought that was confirmed to be a false rumor?

    Infotainment and navigation would be separate. Timelines likely different as well, as the in house AMD solution is likely at least a year off. If the news was accurate. It may very well be a 2019/2020 release, but no way of knowing what Tesla is working on. Just that keeping costs in check is in their best interest.

    AMD and GF separately and publicly denied working with Tesla on the rumored project. Perhaps someone can parse the wording finely enough to leave some possibility open, but it's significant that both were motivated to inform investors that no such deal was made.

    https://forum.beyond3d.com/posts/2002152/

    It would be difficult for a slightly different deal than described to not have a similar material impact on their stock prices, or at least AMD, so the denial is a rather strong indicator that the rumor was false.

    The initial story in particular even had a correction for itself, and from what I can tell that correction essentially torpedoed the whole logic chain of the rumor. The author made a weak association that Tesla working with GF meant AMD was involved, and that initial assumption was the result of misinterpreting a fragment of a hypothetical example.

    Makes a lot of sense. In the medium / long term chips targeted at inference will be mass marketed driving margins down. nVIDIA business model needs high margins and they are more easily found on the training aspect. By open sourcing their inference chips they get someone else to manufacture them, who work ok with smaller margins, while keeping some control on the platform. Looks like nVIDIA did learn something out of their mobile chips fiasco.

    Yet again, NVidia’s gaming sales ~ AMDs all revenue lines combined.
