Is Apple Looking To AMD Over NVIDIA For Next Generation iMacs?
NVIDIA currently supplies the GPUs for Apple's newest generation all-in-one (AIO) iMac systems, and we haven't heard any chatter that suggests either side is unhappy with that relationship. It isn't necessarily odd that Apple is seeking an electrical engineer who might only have experience with AMD GPUs and not with NVIDIA, but it does open the door to speculation, if even just ever so slightly.
The ideal candidate will be tasked with "electrical & system design integration of the iMac computer system" and "will be responsible for the design, implementation, integration, and qualification of complex computer systems." Knowledge of Intel chipsets is a must, as well as parallel memory interfaces (DDR3/GDDR5), but when it comes to GPUs, Apple seems rather indifferent.
It's probably much ado about nothing, but worth keeping an eye one.
