These predictions are worthless, particularily from the guys listed, Garner, ISuppli, etc. In Nov 2009 they were downgrading their forecasts, some to less than 1/3 of what actually happened for 2010, then in Sept 2010 they are up grading their forecasts for 2010 to be in line with the actuals. These guys couldn't predict yesterday's weather. Here is my prediction: At this time next year Garner and ISuppli will be changing their incorrect 2010 forecasts by more than 50%.

So what is your prediction of the growth of "GPU in server" for 2011 and 2012, and how much is server growth and how much is displacement?

I am surprised to find no mention of rapidly growing market for GPU's that are finding their way to servers, pretty soon even in 'low end' ones. The growth for these boxes is well assured in network enterprises of developing economies, not to mention data centers. On the consumer market side, I was also did not find any mention of ARM's Cortex A-15 based devices (from TI, Samsung, ST-Ericsson, etc., the one that Intel missed!) are leading the growth bandwagon, in developed & developing economies. There is definitely great growth potential for products in this category. The above two certainly represent good trends in the IC market. Dr. MP Divakar

worrisome future growth but i am surprised to read that solar will add fuel to the growth. Good surprise. I always consider solar technology to be an underdog, which is puppy with strong future.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
