Summary (IA Generated)

We’ve barely heard a peep out of Nvidia on the CPU front for years, after the lackluster arrival of its Project Denver CPU and its associated Tegra K1 mobile processors in 2014 — but now, the company’s getting back into CPUs in a big way with the new Nvidia Grace, a Arm-based processing chip specifically designed for AI data centers.

It’s also more competition for Intel, of course, whose shares dipped after the Nvidia announcement.

I’d recommend reading what our friends at AnandTech have to say about where Grace might fit into the data center market and Nvidia’s ambitions, and it’s worth noting that Nvidia isn’t releasing much in the way of specs just yet — but Nvidia does say it features a fourth-gen NVLink with a record 900 GB/s interconnect between the CPU and GPU.

“Critically, this is greater than the memory bandwidth of the CPU, which means that NVIDIA’s GPUs will have a cache coherent link to the CPU that can access the system memory at full bandwidth, and also allowing the entire system to have a single shared memory address space,” writes AnandTech.
