Aquantia is announcing some rather big news with one of the hottest companies in tech these days. Aquantia has made a name for itself by delivering gigabit network controllers for use in enthusiast motherboards and gaming notebooks, along with multi-gigabit solutions for network switches. However, its newest partnership with NVIDIA will see its Multi-Gig solutions used in the DRIVE autonomous vehicle platforms. Using Aquantia Ethernet controllers, NVIDIA's DRIVE platforms can communicate with other vehicle systems at up 10Gbps using traditional automotive Ethernet cables. There’s the AQC100 (PHY), AQVC100 (MAC), and AQVC107 (combo of both chips integrated into a single package). Currently,... Read more...
When it comes to artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning, NVIDIA is heavily invested on the hardware side of things with products like its Tesla GPU accelerators and the DGX Station. Those AI efforts are also fully on display with the DRIVE PX platform that is powering today's semi-autonomous vehicles. However, NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang believes that his company's hardware efforts are advancing fast enough, and that automotive partners will be capable of delivering fully autonomous vehicles on the road within four years. That is, however, if governmental regulations can keep up with the rapid advancement of technology. “It will take no more than 4 years to have fully autonomous cars on... Read more...
NVIDIA has been firing on all cylinders recently. The company has been crushing it with respect to its core markets and products in PC graphics, silicon engines for autonomous self-driving cars and AI accelerators. Nowhere was this strong performance more on display than during the company’s Q2 earnings results, which came out after the closing bell yesterday. NVIDA reported that Q2 revenue rose 56 percent to $2.23 billion compared to the same period last year. Revenue was also up 15 percent sequentially. GAAP earnings per diluted share rose 124 percent year-over-year (YoY) to $0.92, while non-GAAP earnings were up 91 percent YoY to $1.01. Operating income and net income were up 117 percent...

NVIDIA is flexing its GPU muscle in the artificial intelligence and deep learning market thanks to a partnership with Chinese search giant Baidu. You can think of Baidu as the Chinese equivalent to Google’s dominance of the U.S. search and internet advertising market. Thanks to the partnership, NVIDIA is hoping to spread its hardware in three key areas. First off, NVIDIA’s next generation Volta-based GPU architecture to provide a robust deep learning platform for the Baidu Cloud. Used in combination with the its PaddlePaddle deep learning framework, Baidu will make use of Tesla Volta V100 and Tesla P4 GPU accelerators. With this potent hardware at its disposal, Baidu should expect even higher... Read more...
Despite cautionary push back from regulators and lawmakers, it is becoming increasingly clear that self-driving cars are the future. Development in the area has been proceeding at a breakneck pace. Even so, one has to wonder when exactly autonomous vehicles will become a reality, versus just a prototype. It could be sooner than you think thanks to a new partnership between Volvo, Autoliv, and NVIDIA. The two automakers have teamed up with NVIDIA to accelerate the advancement of self-driving car technology. As part of that alliance, they have set an ambitious goal of having production vehicles built on NVIDIA's Drive PX car computing platform on roadways by 2021. That gives them just four years...

Toyota is tapping NVIDIA to deliver the necessary artificial intelligence hardware that will power the automaker's autonomous driving systems. In doing so, Toyota joins a growing and impressive list of automotive partners that have teamed up with NVIDIA to push the autonomous vehicle category forward, a category that Toyota has spent more than two decades researching and developing. The Japanese automaker will use NVIDIA's Drive PX computer platform to power advanced autonomous driving systems that will be introduced in future vehicles. It is a joint collaboration in which engineering teams from both companies have already started developing software on NVIDIA's AI platform. "Toyota has worked... Read more...
NVIDIA hopes to make a huge impact in the autonomous market, as it's been vigorously promoting its Drive PX platform for the past couple of years. And while NVIDIA might not be a name most people think of when looking at the automotive realm, the company has proven itself to be more than capable of delivering market-leading solutions for digital-driven roads (the company's latest earnings report shows that it non-gaming related business operations are doing quite well). Now, the company has earned the right to strut its stuff to the world - at least in the state of California. The state's Department of Motor Vehicles (CA DMV) has just updated its website to include NVIDIA as the latest... Read more...
NVIDIA CEO Jen Hsun Huang hosted a press conference at the Four Seasons Hotel in Las Vegas this evening, to officially kick off the company’s Consumer Electronics Show activities.  Jen Hsun began the press conference with a bit of back story on the Tegra K1 and how it took NVIDIA approximately 2 years to get Kepler-class graphics into Tegra, but that it was able to cram a Maxwell-derived GPU into the just announced Tegra X1 in just a few months. We’ve got more details regarding the Tegra X1 in this post, complete with pictures of the chip and reference platform, game demos, benchmarks and video of the Tegra X1 in action with a variety of workloads, including 4K 60 FPS video playback.
