Ever sense that report from the Apple reorg about their "ambitious" semiconductor plans, I've been wondering what that meant. This is a reasoned take on it. I am wondering if Nvidia might have some role in this play, too. Project Denver, where are yooooouuuu?

I know Nvidia is continuing work on Project Denver as an R&D effort but many of the key technical folks jumped ship for Intel, Apple and Google over a year ago.

Hey Dylan, Thanks for leaving the key word: 2017. If you are going to copy an article or refer an article, at least understand the gist of it, before throwing it up all over here. You and Rick make a nice pair. Not fit to be a reporter let alone a Tech one.

Im sure the guys at PA is really brilliant and many of them would probably work their ass of to beat intel at their home turf. But not only do they have to design an architecture (ARM based?) that is better than what intel has shown us today, they also need to beat whatever intel has been up to the last few years while loitering ahead of AMDs floundering attempts to catch up. Also whatever they cook up has to beat intels node advantage, no small thing in it self. And they need to do this without stepping on any intel patents. That is a tall order, even with Intrinsitys secret sauce.

@help.fulguy- thanks for the constructive criticism. Very helpful. I am afraid you might have left out a word in the second sentence of your post. Thanks again.

Apple are looking at how they can continue to differentiate their product to keep a wack of profit. If the consumer realises that all a Mac is, is a computer the same as a Sony or Lenovo, they won't pay the premium. The differentiatr is needed to continue to deliver $8bn per quarter that feeds its stock price.......

In no particular order: Thomas Kistler Alexander Klaiber Rupert Brauch Tim Kong Chris Leary A quick search on LinkedIn for "Binary Translation" (BT) shows something of a mass exodus of such specialists from Nvidia within the last two years. BT was (is?) the essential enabler for "Project Denver"

Qestions: Aren't 75% of Apple revenue from iPhone/iPad? Isn't Samsung the biggest competior of Apple in smartphone and tablet? Isn't Samsung manufacturing and helping design SOCs for Apple? Who would going to manufacture this ARM processor for iMac? Most likely Samsung. Then, what would do Apple good?
