In recent times, there has been an increase in the exchange of commendatory statements between Nvidia and Dell, with the latest information indicating that Nvidia will have a Windows AI processor ready by next year.

Dell announces Nvidia processors for Windows AI computers next year

When the first rumors about AMD and Nvidia's plans to develop ARM processors for portable computers emerged last year, many had doubts about these intentions given the current focus of these companies on producing AI accelerators for large data centers and their server infrastructure.

Those with better memories can easily recall the not-so-distant beginning of the “Windows on ARM” platform and the significant efforts Nvidia put into developing its Tegra processors, which were pioneers in the field of an alternative Windows ARM operating system.

However, an invisible barrier of interest prevented the progress and success of the new platform at that time. The question arises: why? Did Nvidia rush, or why is the same concept that was halted then being announced so loudly and euphorically promoted today? It seems Nvidia has just now received the green light to produce PC processors.

Back to the present. Michael Dell, CEO of Dell, and Jensen Huang, CEO of Nvidia, have somewhat confirmed the previous information. It appears that Nvidia will introduce its processor for ‘AI PCs’ as early as next year.

However, there is a catch.

Nvidia has extensive experience in designing ARM processors for PCs

When Bloomberg asked about Nvidia's position in the segment of personal computers with artificial intelligence during a joint interview, Michael Dell said to "come back with the same question next year," while Jensen Huang responded "exactly." Such answers could be interpreted as a confirmation of earlier Nvidia plans to return in grand style to the “Windows-on-Arm” AI PC market with their own ARM-based processors.

Although this market is not as lucrative as the server AI “cloud” infrastructure and faces strong competition, with about 280 million computers sold annually, this market is hard to ignore. After all, Nvidia has everything needed to create a top-notch processor for portable PCs, based on general-purpose ARM cores, GeForce graphics cores, and Tensor AI coprocessors.

In fact, Nvidia could seriously shake up the order in this market segment given the experience it has and the very powerful technology it has been developing for a long time. The competition should definitely be wary of Nvidia processors.

With SoC chips intended for computers, Nvidia could also target other related markets, such as gaming consoles and other highly integrated devices that require AI assistance.

Nvidia is a leading force in the development of AI accelerators

Speaking about Nvidia's AI capabilities, it should be noted that even now a large number of applications that take advantage of artificial intelligence functions can be significantly accelerated with Nvidia GeForce RTX graphics processors.

From this point of view, Nvidia has already enabled the AI experience on tens of millions of computers containing the latest GeForce RTX 30 and 40 series graphics processors. “All our GeForce graphics processors have the same Tensor cores that power the H100 accelerators in cloud infrastructure,” Huang said.

“Every one of our GPUs uses artificial intelligence to work. AI will transform gaming. All characters in games will actually be chatbots (some form of micro LLM models). Creating virtual worlds will be much easier”.

It should be noted that Nvidia has not yet officially confirmed its return to the Windows AI computer market with its own designed processors. After all, the company might license its technology to other companies, which would reduce risks and increase profit margins, but still ensure that Nvidia gets its share of the market pie, reports Tomshardware.

Dell advances in the fight against cyberattacks

Dell is expanding its portfolio of data protection for devices, software, and services offerings to help users strengthen cyber resilience in the face of increasing cyberattacks.

Dell helps users create a modern and resilient foundation for data protection locally and in public clouds. These innovations help address the issues raised in the Dell Global Data Protection Index 2024 survey, which revealed that 75% of organizations believe their existing data protection measures are not capable of handling threats.

The need for comprehensive and sustainable cybersecurity solutions has never been more urgent than today. As organizations quickly adopt public cloud solutions, hybrid work models, and generative artificial intelligence, the threat landscape has shifted its dynamics to expose more vulnerabilities within organizations.

With the complexity and sophistication of cyberattacks escalating worldwide, we must prioritize scalable real-time data protection infrastructure that is AI-ready, reports India Technology News.
