Intel Announces 11th Gen Rocket Lake & Comet Lake Refresh
"Intel also announced stuff that was the day before they announced eleventh gen stuff so on desktop it's rocket lake s which let's just get this out of the way. This is basically a previous laptop architecture ported over to desktop so along with that comes they're better. Ipc has up to nineteen percent higher than ten th gen desktop but also the Laptop limitation of only eight cores and threads backs so the new eleven. Nine hundred k. Is not a ten core part. It's not twelve. corpora park. An eight core part. Now you're getting higher single threaded performance but you are losing two cores. Jim sure is. It's not a great look to go from ten to eight for your flagship. But it's new
Nvidia's $40 billion Arm acquisition to be investigated by UK competition regulator
"Watchdog in the u. k. Plans to investigate invidious proposed acquisition of the british chip designer arm and nvidia announced plans to buy the company for forty billion dollars from softbank back in september. The watchdog is inviting third parties to give their opinion as to how competition would be impacted by this acquisition arm. C yo had said previously that he's expecting regulators to look into the deal invidia. Today is more than fought four percent. It was added to cities catalysts.

Report: Samsung Electronics, SK Hynix have conservative DRAM capex targets for 2021
"Was a report today on bloomberg saying that samsung s k hynix. We're going to cut back or keep cap ex on d. rams stable effectively on a year on year basis. It would look like a decline in capital spending on d. around which is in theory good for a western digital as as a micron. Mico what do you like in this space if anything. Yeah so have you see. I'm going to look at it a little bit from an operations perspective. I mean the options markets definitely were very bullish on western digital. I mean obviously we could see that in the increase in the share price. I think it was up more than ten percent today but a lot of these names also were saying some bullish activity going further out expecting basically today's rally persist into the future western digital. I think traded you know some multiple close to three or four times. The average daily call volume went and it's normally trades pretty good volume to begin with so we're looking at seventy to eighty thousand calls straight on western digital bullish flow going out about ninety days or so. You know the other thing i would say is that we have some product cycle. Basically going on here. And i think this is going to be beneficial across the space. I mean You know we're not really looking at this particular area necessarily today the gpu makers and so on we were talking about it yesterday. Things like nvidia and so on I'm also very curious. You know. I'm wondering whether other kind of chip companies like intel might actually get their mojo back. They're probably going to need to do some pretty serious rethinking of their business. And i think dan loeb is looking into that and trying to pressure them to do exactly that maybe getting a focus back on engineering and making the kinds of products that their customers actually want to buy. But i do think that there is potential continued strength in the space going into the new year.
"nvidia" Discussed on The WAN Show Podcast
"We really we've learned you know we're cool now we're good we're nice You know don't worry about that. I don't know. I just kind of like if i have to guess. Maybe every time. I talk about this i am i am poisoning the well even further With respect to my chances of ever having a good relationship with nvidia again But the only conclusion that i can really draw here is that the toxic city goes up very very high. Yeah that's that's the only real conclusion. I can draw like the fact that these things happen. Invidia treats partners with contempt and nothing ever changes Means that it's just the attitude there. And i know there are exceptions. I know for a fact there are exceptions. But maybe this is the kind of thing that like at this point. I've got nothing left to lose and it just requires a dedicated video about it dislike. Look these are all the things that you talk to literally any invidia partner about and they can talk your ear off about the kind of both that invidia puts them through but they're in no position to speak out because either it's above their pay grade Or be they would be. They'd be fired or they would negatively impact their company. You should go like full. You should get like an outside. The not related to the tech industry investigative journalists and dislike have them host the video and everything these interesting. Yeah meet says nvidia screw diabetes. Heart this yeah. I mean that's yet another just like i don't even know what the point is who benefits. I don't think anybody benefited from invidia. Giving themselves such a leg up in terms of board designed for the rtx three series like why it doesn't benefit consumers because the vast majority of consumers are going to be buying a cards not invidia founders edition cards. It doesn't benefit invidia because it ends up creating negative pr when there's like launch boards failing it doesn't benefit their aib's because they have to either recall or fix boards on their way out to consumers or they have to pay overtime and go into crunch mode for no reason whatsoever in order to get a good quality product out there in time for lunch like it doesn't benefit consumers. I say that because they get they have a chance to get broken products for no reason like what is the point. Why why. why are you doing this. Why don't you just be cool. You know why don't you just be cool. Chill out a little bit. I don't get it. I don't know anyway. Why don't we just move on to our next topic because at this point i don't think they're ever going to address it and i don't think that there's little change them. Yeah they've they've been in this situation a number of times and they just never say anything about it. Yeah or if they do noting slaked. Sorry we're not going to fundamentally change anything about our attitude but we're definitely sorry. Yeah it's but they're they're kind of too big to fail in that way too. They have so much. Momentum people are just gonna keep buying their stuff. I have in the enterprise space as well which tends to have a lot less Reaction to these types things not consumers. Don't ever even end up hearing about it. Yeah so so. Why don't we prayed into the devotion geo g. china thing. Do you want to run us through what went down here. Sure synergy project read. I think if you actually hold on so we do this out of order. Can you just recap your cyberpunk. Twenty seventy seven review. I for me dude. I told you. I played for like two hours and it was just horrible. I don't remember the exact time i played for but it wasn't very long and honestly probably about half an hour in. It was just like morbid curiosity of like is this really. This bad The the i don't know my my the thing that i went over was they took this incredibly Lot sorry i just keep getting absolutely spammed once Okay back it. There's there's so much life in it in terms of what it looks like yet city is beautiful but is completely completely lifeless. There's there's nothing to it. They i'll see it feels fake. The conversations feel bad. The story is not very engaging. There's like it's just it feels. It feels quite a bit when something. Is this hyped up. Even if it was entirely hyped up the community and not the company which is not the case but even even if that was it you feel kind of lied to in these scenarios so so the biggest the biggest own was probably cyberpunk twenty seventy seven being removed from the playstation store. This week Do you want to run through this or yeah. So sony announced late. Thursday that it would offer full refunds to people who purchased cyberpunk twenty seventy seven and that is Kind of sort of what else alluding to previously the feels like you relied to thank ya. See all this footage from the game. And then the footage from the The like ps four original xbox versions is the seen it. It's like actually hilarious. It doesn't even remotely look like the same game. I don't know if you can find any of it linus but it it. It looks like a completely different game. Like it's The fact that they were okay with selling that to anyone at any level hilarious one really really funny thing that i saw was people pointed out that there's a collector's edition of the consul and it barely runs on the cyberpunk twenty seventy seven collector's edition version of the console and it barely run so so that was pretty great But yeah cyberpunk win for cd project. Red went from like the absolute darling of the industry like something that i found interesting for a long time..
A Conversation About Cloud Gaming
"So continuing some discussion about playing computer games. I thought it would be good to revisit a discussion. We had some time ago. Which is cloud gaming. And i suppose before we get into a discussion about cloud gaming. We should probably sort of just define what we're referring to here for the benefit of people who haven't experienced they saw try to or heard about of which i am one okay so this is going to be an interesting conversation of it later. So alan how would you summarize what cloud gaming is. It's tricky because you could argue. It's the hits. The modern way to stream a game from you know a fast computer this remote and that might be a modern thing but actually it's been around a long time there. Let's people play web gangs and those games and not installed on your computer eager to a url and you play a base game so there's a lot of about but the technology is very different these days and so you're streaming these days a video feed of what's going on on the remote computer whereas in the past you might be getting java script. Html images or it might be flash or something like that. I think all of these are cloud gaming because you're playing the game. I game resides on somebody else's computer. Basically i think for for this topic. I think we're talking about the modern incarnation right. So these are the ones where you launch game. Somewhere on the internet. Angie effectively interact with a livestreamed version of that game. So there there are two models of this occurred to me in my head. Where when you describe that. So the first off is basically your you're renting vm. With a with a powerful graphics card and then you can play you you you basically log that remotely and you play your games on it and the other one is something like spotify for games where you're subscribed to a library of games and you're using an application to launch and play those games which one of those is the more common scenario here. I think they're all functional. I don't think you're talking about two different. The one you're talking about the technical aspects of how you the game and the other one you're talking about the the the business model and those are two entirely separate things okay. It really doesn't matter what the business model is. That's how the technical side is in the tentacles. implement the the businessman loving the different things. one may be subscription while maybe paper play one. Maybe you get to your in games another one. Maybe you renting games or something like that. I think very different. And i think there's there's a couple of options and you'll discover the limitations and the benefits from them. If we go through and i think well then let's discuss the options so it was the one that you've been playing a lot or you've had longest martinis you had invidia grid be mentioned in awhile back. That was what it was cooled when we first started using it. We access that through. Initially through our nvidia shield and we enrolled into the program for that. And that's now become g force now so we've had that for. I think maybe three years maybe a bit longer than that even and it's pretty impressive stuff. I've i have played some games on that. As part of the beater. I had access to a load of games. I didn't have to buy which was also kind of feeling so. Is that a subscription service. You pay it is yet where it doesn't have to be so it does have a free tier but when you request to play a game you'll put in q. As to win. A vm is going to be allocated to you. But if you're a subscription member than you will waste will have a machine allocated to you right but that's artificial scarcity to get you to upgrade to a plane adver feed in in spotify is annoying enough that you'd wanna pay right right and it's four pounds ninety nine a month And so you're basically holding a tablet computer in your hands and the game is not running on. That thing became running out there. Somewhere on a machine Doesn't really matter what the technical details of that machine is remote machine and the game is running on that and you'll seeing a video feed basically of what's going on on that competes in your inputs are being sent to that computer. Yes exactly say
Nvidia's Graphics Cards Drive Growth
"Let's talk about invidia guys and video. In the news this is a huge story. from venturebeat and the headline is and videos. Q3 revenues rise fifty seven percent to four point seven three billion as gaming and data center. Stay strong huge numbers And a huge sort of just increase in revenue given the size of invidious business. Right this is not like a small startup that has grown fifty seven percent The article goes on and talks about earnings per share and things like that But basically the thrust of it is gaming and their new. gp's used their new graphics. Cards drove much of this growth. That basically they're they can't keep anything in stock they continue to be out of stock This surprising for anyone. This story is i. it's quite pod like they're bigger than intel right now from a market cap. I was staggered by like normally when you see fifty seven percent growth. It's like three million dollars face or like this is like a billion dollar base at. It's you know what stunned me about. This story is not that their business had improved. Because obviously there are a lot of factors that would lead you to think they would have another strong quarter. It's that it had capacity to improve this much right like i. i would have told you that. A billion dollars the business. It would like there. Wasn't this much headroom to add to this. But i think it does show look one is interesting. That data centers are a piece of this results. Right we can't say this is entirely gaming driven so we do call up fundamentally. I think it's next generation cards and consumer adaptiveness in this environment. Like it's unbelievable how much that's proven to be corporate results. I just unbelievable to me. Lindsay are you. Are you surprised at all. I mean i don. I don't know how much you followed the hardware market or has anyone been trying to buy an nvidia graphics card over the last like two months but in some ways the user experience has been very telling like in probably could have predicted the stock price increase. Yes so i'm invidia has actually been in the news as a chipmaker completely. Different reason in the policy world in a not so good ones are gonna glaze right over that i have to be the news good ball but no as someone who has been looking at graphics cards seeing that they're completely sold out everything and just the fact that the home pc market i think has grown since coronavirus i. It's not surprising at all in videos. The top dog and they also just acquired when someone starts with an a. Dna acquire the other chipmaker. This i think they were talking about buying arm. I don't know if the deal is done. Arm arm makes is like a cpu or chip architecture Which is interesting because the there may be. You know if nvidia gets into sort of the cpu market or at least like a total system on a chip kind of solution where you have cpu and gp one same silicon. That could be interesting like And especially also because apple is now producing laptops with their own arm based yet so it seems they can do no wrong and if you look at the stock price it seems like they can do no wrong. We're where does nvidia end up. William in your mind like two or three or five from now like even continue this kind of gross well it. It's a challenge. Because this is you know it's not partly it's just. It's just a cycle in the chip business. And you do well like when it's almost like there's console cycles and console sales spike in those years chip cycles so i do think it's. It's not like they're going to sustain this result. Quarter to quarter right like. It's not like this. There is gonna be a tail off. It's natural. I think navidi is even messaging that right now. Like hey guys you know. Don't don't expect results desist. But i do think that for nydia. The path forward is through something like the arm. Acquisition right like the way for them to sustain this level of growth and success is basically to position themselves as the like the v. computing company. That's it. They have to be a solution where they start looking at more integrated software solutions more like expand their category of products right and they have to really be entering across the hardware market and my prediction for sort of new video on the back of these results as they have the resources in the success. I expect you see them. Moving into other types of chips in development. And i wouldn't even be surprised to see to be moving into actual or some types of actual hardware production like beyond the what they do already. Yeah they do. They do but expand expanding that like expanding our hardware lights more
You are doomed if you want to build a gaming computer right now
"If you're trying to build a high end gaming rig you're doomed right now. is you can't buy gp the five thousand series amd cpu's were available for like at launch day and haven't shown up again three thousand series. Gp's all over the map. Amd six thousand series gpu sold out Within a heartbeat at felt like. I'm sure it wasn't quite that fast. Other stuff has been back and forth Ton of televisions available projectors are available. You know set. Top boxes are available. apr's have been in and out. So maybe ours. That i expected to be out of stock until a biscuit before christmas are actually now in stock on us by amazon You know other things not so available Couplings like remind everybody going into black. Friday is especially if you shop on an amazon Camel camel camel. Dot com is incredibly useful. Because sometimes prices go up before Right before black friday. So there is a discount From a price that was actually higher than the normal sales price for the normal. It's or in some cases The really crazy ones are some vendors will actually create an entirely new product skew on amazon. So that there is no older price data so the earlier you check the more likely to have accurate pricing information for something you're looking for and if you are if you are in that desperate hunt per cpu a gpu or console from You know microsoft or sony Now in stock dot net is one way to try and track what's available and where it's available If you're trying to console christmas i have no idea what your likelihood is but it feels like if you find one you should buy it I don't want to encourage anybody to go out there and and pay the the the people on ebay that are charging two or three times. What it should cost But if if christmas is going to be ruined if there's not a console i think it's going to be really tough holiday shopping season for you. On the flip side in terms dot net to know win stock dot net. It's yeah it's tough and the cpu the pc stuff. I we were talking about this earlier. Daytime it's like you know and video always you know they're like you know cheapie us and then they always sell out and there's always this kinda mad dash but this is the first time i really remember nvidia being likes you stock. Will we have a limited supply of of and bbn like wait a minute. Are they getting honest. Or they basically have like eight and once those eight or sold out You're done but in twenty twenty a little bit of both right. Yeah yeah it could be. I mean if you're building a sort of a mid range gaming. Pc inexpensive gaming pc you want to build a you know a plex server. There's ton of hardware out there that's fantastic and is reasonably priced. It's just if you want to high end gaming. Gpu or cpu. It's really really tough. If you want consoles the new the new consoles from from mark shopping sony. it's really really tough Not so bad. But i would definitely definitely definitely shop early and ship early because the way have been going. This year inventories kind of been all over. The map and shipping has been kind of all over the map

Nvidia Crushed Earnings Estimates. Its Stock Is Slipping
"It was another big quarter for invidia. Third quarter profits and revenue both higher than expected for the chipmaker shares. Down a little bit today though. I'm assuming it is around the guidance. They gave on their data center division. Which to be fair they came out and said yeah. This number's going down. I always caution people not to spend too much time worrying about what happens right around earnings with companies and i think in twenty twenty and we've gotten the exact wrong lesson whenever companies beat by just a little bit. Their stock goes up twenty percent whenever they lose by a little bit. Their stock goes down twenty percent. That's actually weird. That's actually weird. It doesn't usually work that way. You're exactly right. That generally speaking stocks are driven by guidance. So now they've reported those earnings those are in the bag but invidious stock has gone up by two hundred and thirty billion dollars market cap this year. Two hundred and thirty billion. So what happened on this day is is is is really nothing there. Crushing it on certain fronts. Their chips are in the twitch by nintendo which sold seven million units last. You know they're they're absolutely doing great. So the earnings report was fabulous. The stock doing. There's probably the stock was ahead of itself and that's all you need to know.

Fortnite set to return to iPhones via Nvidia cloud gaming service
"Let's talk about fortnight way Everybody has been playing for tonight. Haven't they just seems like since the pandemic, it's gone crazy. You might remember that well Fortnight and the Apple store the APP store. They've gotten kind of Ah, match. See, the APP is free in the apple store, But Apple takes a 30% cut or commission on any in app purchases for fortnight epic games Didn't really like that. And so Apple got thegame banned from the abstract because they were trying to get around those fees. And this all happened in early September. Well epic games the company behind fortnight. More than 115 million people play the game on IOS crazy. But there's a tech company called and Vidia. They developed a version of its G Force Cloud Gaming service that's compatible with start safari on iPhones, meaning you're soon be ableto access fortnight on the go once more. As for the lawsuit between epic Annapolis said to go to trial next May, but it could take years to resolve. But whatever you do do not use the word fortnight as a password. Because that's just too weak.
AMD Reaches Highest CPU Market Share Since 2007, Q3
"Amd reaches twenty percent market share highest since two thousand seven according to the q. Three twenty twenty report. Amd shared the recent mercury research. Cpi marketshare results. These results showed amd had reached its highest overall market share since two thousand seven and has its highest desktop share since twenty thirteen and the x eighty six market. Amd took its highest amount of share sits q. Two of twenty eleven. This comes as an md has been experiencing still our financial results pointing to amazing growth and also follows intel's reset disappointing earnings report. Particularly when it comes to intel's desktop pc process ourselves looks like amd's doing pretty well. We think about that. I think that's awesome. I think competition is always a good thing. I'm not a particular fan boy of either company. Though the past few years i've been pulling for. Amd despite having an entire processor. But i've got a used server. Cpu not a normal desktops. Ep so really. I think it's great that amd's catching up again. I'm a fan of the underdog typically for good story right. Yeah definitely. I mean both. Amd until have issues. I'm not gonna lie. Yeah but i think this is great for. amd the great that they've been able to catch up with their processors intel needs get back in the game they've been having trouble with their Processes over the past few years trying to get by ten nanometer process. Amd's seven nanometer. Now okay. so it's like intel's have trouble gained lowered work okay. Well i'm sure they'll be able to figure something out all right. So speaking of that. Intel launches iris maximum. Gp's entry level laptops intel's finally stepping back into the dp business after two decades shipping. Their gpu in oem laptops. They've lost her irish exc- max. Graphic solution is designed to complement intel's x lp integrated graphics into the tiger lake. Cp's xy maxwell chopin thin and light laptops as an updated graphics option and has a focus on mobile creation. So this is really meant to be position as game solution but more of a mobile content creation solution helping in applications such as handbrake to pixel image up sampling software other productivity increase tasks still. The susceptive compete with nvidia. His latest generation entry level solution. Mx extra fifty baby steps. You now baby steps. I think it's good. They're getting into that at least the contact creation. Dps yeah that'll make some money from that you know Contact creators want to have that. Gps helps speed up the rendering process. Yeah for sure. Yeah crazy like how much you know. You're seen as far as content wise as far as like rendering like you know Special effects three d images all kinds of stuff on to. Yeah it's pretty wild well even with just regular video editing like you don't need that powerful of a graphics card to render to to speed it up you know just any dedicated. Gpu yeah that's going to speed up the rendering process for the youtube videos or wherever you go to upload videos. Yeah for sure. I mean. I know i've i i remember like years ago. I was up like youtube all day. You know i'm sure by now. It's probably caught up. Yeah so even though intel's not competing what's the gaming. Gps yeah you know they're going to compete with the likes of like Gatx Was at ten thirty. I think it was something like that. Okay but that's Example of what they compete with. I think you know hard. I mean it's lower in cars. Obviously these different products that are needed for situations. Yeah so apple's secret button. On the iphone and ios fourteen apple has implemented a feature called back tap and i o s. Fourteen adds a new hardware button to the iphone. Backed-up turns the entire back of the phone and two a touch sensitive button which can trigger specific buttons said. He could be modified inside of the accessibility menu feature could be integrated with shortcuts. So you could do almost anything you imagine what this feature. I could tell you right now. Though i have iphone six s running ios fourteen. That's not going to work with that phone. That must beaten phones. I can handle it.
AMD Ryzen 5 5600X Posts Benchmark Result in Passmark
"Top story and be Verizon 5 5600 ex-post Benchmark results in PassMark, 10% above all in Sol processors the new processor had impressive performance in the past or single thread Benchmark. It was forty-seven percent faster than its predecessor has be all Intel chips. The processor has a base clock of 3.5 gigahertz and boosts up to 4.6 gigahertz and retails for $299. The score was 3945 points the previous processors the ryzen 5 2600x off scored twenty-six hundred seventy-seven points and the rise in five thirty six hundred XT score 2832 points. We've yet to see benchmarks from the new Rising seven fifty-eight hundred ex or Thursday nine fifty nine hundred XT or two fifty nine fifty ex, but they will of course have significantly better scores than what the 5600 access May is so far. We've got good news on the GPU front to which will discuss dead. In the gaming news. Yeah, this processor Benchmark. It's really exciting stuff because AMD they had the plague catch up with Intel for some time past few years with the rise and launchers have been really good. Okay before Rising came out AMD was kind of lagging behind for years on the CPU front. Unfortunately and the past few years have come out was rising and they've come out with some amazing stuff. They were still a little behind until as far as performance goes, but they were definitely catching up and now it looks like at least it's single thread performance here on the new CPUs are coming out. Yeah, they're exceeding until they're even exceeded their own stuff. But beyond what I would have thought you know, now what are these stores based off of exactly their benchmark scores? This is the single threaded Performance Off. It's kind of hard to explain to someone who might not be quite as tech-savvy. Okay, but it's just a way that process is certain renderings or whatnot. Like what's the scale? Like, what's the highest she that I don't think there is a highest you just get more and more and more points God's it. Yeah, that's like it's like the Dave Meltzer scoring system. I guess except has a supposed to be five stars and several wrestlers have broken the Yankees, but I like I think you've reviewed like in a store match couple years ago something like that. All right. Well, let's start a wrestling podcast some time and as much as we're talking about wrestling cuz this is a ticket. I don't know if you're free time, right? That's all right, ma'am. But yeah, so I'm really excited about these rides and see if he is a competition is definitely a good thing and it's great to see AMD really competing with Intel on Thursday. They're competing with Nvidia 2 and we're going to get into that in the gaming news. That's really excited stuff too. Now. Do you think these new processes will give them an advantage as far as like encryption is concerned with encryption. I really don't know but I know we do have a a little vulnerability with the Intel CPUs. I want you tell us about that sure researchers extract a secret key used to encrypt until CPU code a secret key that encrypts updates to a number of Intel CPUs has been extracted bowing third parties to decrypt the microcode updates until provides to fix security vulnerabilities and other bugs. It's possible to update Intel chips with off the microcode using the secret key. There's no way to effectively eliminate the vulnerability but until has said the issue is not serious for customers wage. As an attacker would require physical access to the machine
Python at NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL)
"Angles especially around some of the remote stuff. A lot of things you guys do work with like Rovers. You talked about spirit just to have a conversation with those things is like we complain about late and senior website was slow or I was playing this game and it was hard because there was. Two hundred milliseconds of latency. There's different kinds of latency out in space. Right? Wouldn't the speed light is not enough. So he can some of the smart and putting it on rovers and other stuff. Some of this ai work that you're doing. It sounds like it might have some lakes Ai I. Hope. So and we think it does too. So Michael, basically the work that. We're doing for your listeners. We have a project that we've been investigating now. So let's fast forward the clock rovers nowadays the last one that landed on the planet. I won't say that we shipped because we just shipped one, which we'll talk about called does a couple of weeks. The right we did pandemic shipping and launching of rockets, Rovers, new fad but yes, for pre. That pre pandemic in two thousand, twelve, we ship the the Mars Science Laboratory or the Curiosity Rover, and that one is about. So spirited opportunity just the size them ver- you know your listeners it's about the size if you have kids of one of those cars that you push maybe or something like that or maybe like a power wheel big wheel type of thing that size. Of Spirit and opportunity the MSL rover is about the size of a small car like Volkswagen bug and if you came to jpl and it was open to have these some day and things like that, you could walk into our building agency a full scale model of to really get the feel of it but that's the size rover over that we're talking about now that's. Sort of the modern class at them and so twenty, twenty s the perseverance, the launched it's the same size. So we've got MSL still operating spirit and opportunity arts anymore because they were solar-powered MSL is powered basically by nuclear fission uses an rtd power source and things like that. So it doesn't have to worry about solar panels so it can go for quite a while and. Has Been. So it's a great test basically as long as it mechanically is still functioning right? Absolutely and so challenges with mechanical functioning are like, Hey, we learned a lot about the wheels for a car sized thing as we drove over walks in it toward the wheels up, you know and things, and so we did we learned a lot about them if you look at one. Quick Update and twenty twenty as the wheels have little homer simpson speed holes are not speed old but holes to prevent having just track and tread that dies catching on everything and that's just one thing we learned amongst other things. We've got smart engineers JPL. MSL's agree platform to test stuff out on. However let's talk about AIML L. I'm going to dispel some missing rumor so. MSL and space assets and others they all need right we gotta do computing we need a processor and A. And things like that they are running off of an old the what is that the latest? GP probably like a Invidia like twenty eighty something like that. Yeah. Everybody thinks that and I know you're being facetious and I liked the snark it's awesome. But yes, no, and that's the challenge. Everybody thinks that and it's not it's running off of a rats fifty, which is a be a h that's as bad as powerful as a POWERPC chip and process or in so and why real quick y right when we crash something in the government, we've got a congressional inquiry that we have to respond to. This virtual companies do it and we love the commercial companies where partner with them. Now, they don't right they I mean not to say that it doesn't ruin their value stream or their reputation or things like that. But they've got a little bit more flexibility to do testing and stuff like that than we do and so we are risk averse by profile definition, and so because of that, we were only use things that are what we. Call radiation hardened, which means that when it gets up there in space, a space does and cosmic radiation do weird things to your hardware they flip the bids amongst that's the easy stuff they do. They do a lot of other nasty stuff and so you gotta make sure that the hardware works in space and so because of that the technology, the Gartner life cycle for what we could use for that is real behind and so this big. Smart this big. Potentially smart you know and it is smart. They did great things on MSL and they're going to do even greater on twenty twenty is writing off of an old processor. So the I is human in the loop even more. So coupled with the fact that you alluded to, Hey, you know bandwidth latency you think that's an issue the lifetime from Earth to Mars eight minutes round trip. So anything you send to Mars you, gotTa. Weigh eight minutes to figure out what the heck happened or even what happened for your report back. Then you know that's not it doesn't all have to be synchronised. They're asynchronous ways. There are ways to kind of achieved some advantages and key things up, but it's still it's eight minutes basically, and so because of that, there's a video on youtube by the way for your listeners. If you haven't seen it, it's called the seven minutes of terror. Closer to eight. Yeah. Yeah. That's a great one. Yeah. Yeah. That's for the entry descent and landing. When they landed MSL curiosity, they had to use a big sky crane instead of the typical big balloon rap the rover to balloon it let it balance which was the way they did it before it was so big they had to have this elaborate sky crane thing and in that seven minutes when you go into entry descent and landing there seven minutes before you knew, Hey, what the heck happened and all this stuff had to happen autonomously and things like that, which is great. But yeah, normally eight minutes and so if I told you today that the Mars surface operations people use about two. Hundred images a day that are taken from the rover from its NAVC cans, which are camps by the wheels, and it's Mass Cam, which is the big head that take selfies and other things that you see what it's arm. If I told you that today, they only use two hundred images to plan what to do for rover operations. The next day you'd understand why we're bandwidth limited or Ltd what we can process on the reverse sucking them down to the ground and making decisions. What if I told you tomorrow? We'll get close to that nvidia chip maybe not exactly but there's efforts called high-performance space like computing to build a multi-core. GP. Like chip that is radiation hardened. It's a big government project. That has an emulator already that they're making and that we also today have Mars helicopter I'm perseverance, which is a little drone that went along with it that if successful is running a qualcomm snapdragon, which is gp like chip and why are we not fully radiation hardened and all this? It does we've tested in whatever but it's not like has the years and years of testing. Why are we doing that? Because it's a technology demonstration and we have a bigger like the mission is still successful even if Mars Halley you know is not successful with that what you call ingenuity right and I. Suspect that the risk to a little drone helicopter thing
Testing Chromecast with Google TV
"We reviewed the Google, the crow cast with Google TV. This name continues to me You got one and you've been using it a few days joe did the review and he said that Google just won the living room. So tell us about what it's like actually plugging it into a TV and using the thing setting it up was pretty simple. You had an option for setting it up in the Google home APP or setting it. Up on device the way most android TV's are setup a setting up through the girl home map actually didn't work for me. So I had to go through it manually and then of course, log into all your APPs manually that's always fun but once you get things set up the Google TV interface for the most part is pretty easy to work your way through. So long as you don't have some as long as you have something. At least general that you're aiming towards if you just turn on your TV and like I have no idea what I wanNA watch it can still overwhelm you a little bit. Talk about that experience so. It's recommending shows from different networks and And services over the top services what do you see when you first log in? That's? From say an Nvidia Shield today. Well, it's recommending stuff from services that I don't subscribe to. So every time that I had turned on my Google TV since I got it on Tuesday, it has popped up with a recommendation for love craft country, which is hilarious since I hate horror but also hilarious because I do not subscribe to Hbo Max and I pushed the APP as far down as I could because I. couldn't completely uninstall it or if I have I haven't found the setting for your. Okay. So it's it's pushing you things that you don't currently have subscriptions to at once to up sell you in some way, but it's also giving you. Recommendations on content from services that you do have like Netflix like Disney plus. Is it a better experience today, and it's early incarnation than Android TV on the you know on a nvidia shield or one of the android TV experiences built into an actual television. For the regular user. I think. It is a better experience for people who are persnickety in particular about their experience. The way that I usually am it's different but I'm not sure if it's necessarily better Thursday Google TV definitely is missing out on that other injury TV's half. Okay. So let's talk about that because this is the. From Roy understand this is the de facto android TV experience going forward in a year or two. Basically, every android TV product will have the Google TV overlay and. There's a couple of questions here. The the question is, why is Google doing this? You know we know the answer it's pushing services that you don't subscribe to can upsell you and grab thirty percent of the cut but. Google also thinks that it's just a better lean back experience and the you know the other thing is that this is Google TV. This is Google's flagship television experience and separate from Android TV as the platform that developers can can build experiences for so. Walk us through what you think. Google's rationale is for building. Explicitly Different Overlay for existing Andrew TV hardware I. Think they wanted to consolidate the experience and have it be something that is easier for them to augment and improve as time goes on because right now for updating the home screens on a Goulty on an Android TV, it'll take months for it to reach most models assuming it comes to most models at all as evidenced by the fact that them injecting adds onto the home screen has not reached the majority of Nydia Shield. TV's because nobody is very protective about what software pushes out to their their set top boxes. But at the same time, I mean. It's a different perspective and I like I like the fact that Google has recognized that Oh. Hey this one feature that we had in the Google play movies and TV APP for four years we can use that on TV to make it easier for everybody to watch what they want to watch. 'CAUSE as long as we've had for several years now google play movies and TV. If you go to a movie listing, you can see whether or not you wanNA watch this in Google play movies on TV or Netflix or who or whatever else it's tied into. And the fact that they've expanded that in turn that into the launcher for injury TV now is useful. Maybe I'm a conspiracy theorist. Then maybe maybe maybe I think everything every company does not just google that's connected and has a user interface is all about analytics. This this included. Look at what Google knows by using this new call it a launch guess. It knows what services you don't have. Is You do. What services you've looked at because you saw content you liked what type of content you like when you look for content to consume. That's all valuable stuff for partners it is but I. don't think it's learning as quickly as you would think, Jerry most because I've spent. Of, the things that I've watched on my in on the android Google TV since I have set it up, the majority had a majority of it has been reebok runs for s few and yet every time I log in the first row recommendations is mostly Disney plus in Netflix. and very little from really well. Well No. Because I've. I've watched maybe one thing on Netflix in the last two weeks in Disney. watched. Two or three different things in the last. Week and a half to three weeks and it didn't recommend either of them. I hear you and also I I guess I should have said. The learning part is secondary. The primary part is data collection that I will agree with. But I'm also somebody who is I'm also somebody who hasn't been clicking on recommendations through Google TV APP I'm still somebody who I prefer to go into the APP itself and pick what I WANNA watch. So that might be why the data collection hasn't quite caught up on me yet. Yeah I mean look there's. Google is learning from the experience of running. Algorithms. Its main approach is main product is Google search. It is run by an algorithm that adapts to you and your browsing history. Youtube is just one huge algorithm recommends content so that you will keep watching this feels like. This is Google doing the same thing in a lean back experience that you. You basically queue up a whole bunch of content and once you're finished something, you may be likely to go with a recommendation based on what you've previously watched and because Google is the only company to have gotten Netflix's through the through that barrier of consolidating all of its content into the four use section apple famously couldn't get Netflix. To agree to terms to be in its TV APP. So if you're sitting in watching your apple TV, you will not get Netflix's recommendations in that APP, and that makes it a pretty bad experience because. I. Don't know about you. But half of the things I watch are on Netflix at least. Yeah. So with Netflix content imbued into the lean back for you experience, I feel like as long as you subscribe to a few different services. Hulu. Netflix. Disney plus you know maybe peacock or Hbo Max you will never run out of things to watch and if you can learn about your watching habits well, enough it will do for. LEAN BACK TV watching for over the top services, what it did with net with Youtube and It's exactly what makes Youtube so addictive I haven't been able to use mine yet because. My Av receivers ancient doesn't ever knew enough hdmi standard and it's encryption thing. It's just me with old junk and I don't have anywhere else to plug it in. But what I've seen of it I think I'm GonNa like the interface. It's you know maybe it needs tweet errors telling us it's not perfect for her and. You know I'm sure it's not look look how bad even the APP store was for a year or two. About finding you content you actually cared about, but I, liked it. It reminds me enough of the net flicks. Experience on a big screen that I really like. That I think all also like it on this. Google. Not The chrome whatever they end up calling it. You know overlay whatever. But maybe not today I I haven't. Got To buy new stuff I hate buying new stuff. You can do that next week if it's only fifty bucks than you know it's it's actually that's the other part of this conversation. Right? This is only fifty dollars it's. Thirty dollars cheaper than the chrome cast ultra when it came out and it does not on the hardware doesn't support fewer standards. It's still a four K. streaming device in fact, I've seen. Evidence. That apps on this look better I mean it's not it's no surprise that Youtube for looks better on the chrome cast with Google TV than it does on the Apple. TV. But it does and it's important that it does because net because in addition to net flicks, youtube is a very popular lean back TV experience right now and Google has the new. I. Think it's The v one Kodak on there. It's just a better quality lower bandwidth experience if you're watching it on chrome cast. Right and the price you hit you hit on their that's important. It's going to cost me more money to buy the cables. I need than it did to buy. The device that would just work if if I had a normal setup. So that that's that's important you know Google has went on the record saying it knows that times are tough for a lot of people in that you know hardware prices, matter and service prices matter and them releasing something that. Is. This best been as well received as this has which tells me that it's good at the Price Day they have it. You know. Anything under fifty bucks is still an impulse buy for most people. Yeah, and this'll be going down to forty dollars for prime day and Black Friday I believe based on some leaked information that we saw it Andrew Police last week. So at forty dollars, this is really just google subsidizing the hardware so that it can get you to subscribe to Youtube TV which we didn't even talk about are like live TV is a big component of this product and it is very prominent on Google TV? In a way that it isn't in the ANDROID TV experience.
The Future of Computing Might Not Be So Battery-Powered
"Batteries have become the de facto way we power our portable devices everything from our phones to our laptops to electric vehicles. But some have been turning away from batteries and moving towards something called perpetual computing machines. Instead, they operate unharvested energy from their environments. Are Columnists Christopher mims has been looking into this and he joins me now to explain Chris thanks for being here. Thank you for having me. Okay. So like we said pretty much everything uses batteries right now we've reported that demand is through the roof. So why push to move away from them? So the big push here is that computers are getting smaller they're getting more numerous and the CEO of nvidia Jensen Wong said that he believes the future of computing is a trillion devices doing a at the edge. It's basically just means a bunch of sensors with a little bit of compute attached and they're scattered throughout our environment. Our buildings are oceans are farms. In, order to make all of these, do their jobs you need power from somewhere. Right so the question becomes are we gonNA have a trillion batteries and if so who's going to change a trillion batteries once every two years whenever they run out. And so there has been this push in the really low power computing engineering world. Number one what if we could make computers so low power that they would last for long time on batteries and number two what if we could make them? So power that they don't need batteries at all because they're just harvesting energy from their environment. So obviously, you can put tiny solar panels on them. You can harvest vibrations a that directly intellectuality, and they're very basic physical principles that allow you to turn, for example, ambient heat into electricity. That's a really well known. Old Physical principle that dates back to the beginning of semiconductor even before they were used for computers. And so we are really kind of at a tipping point where you have these super tiny but powerful processors that are using on the order of maybe like five hundred, million watts of power to compete and to put that in perspective. That's half the amount of energy are sorry power that a fly uses inflate a tiny little house flyer and that so little energy that you can sort of. Soak it up from your environment literally there scientists working on harvesting this energy from dirt they call it a microbial fuel cell, two metal electrodes. You just stick it in the TURT- and literally these bacteria create tiny current across those electrodes and so where are we actually putting that sort of technology into practice as part of computing tool. So there've been some really interesting demonstrations where people harvest wireless. Energy. So. There are teams that have done things lake complete phone that has no batteries and is working just by capturing energy from a nearby radio tower and sort of bouncing the signal back. So lots of wireless energy harvesting work has been done. The latest work is that some very clever researchers out of t you delft and northwestern got together and created a Gameboy that has no batteries. and. It has solar panels on it and it's also harvesting energy from your button presses believe it or not. It's so efficient that it can run its display and it's compute and everything with just. A handful of of mill watts of power which can harvest from his environment. So as you said, the vision is that these sorts of devices eventually become ubiquitous what would that look like and what needs to happen between now and then? In order for this to become ubiquitous, there's one other really key unlocking technology that's coming. It's fascinating because this complete up ending of the way that computing has always worked. So we all know that if we restart our computer, we lose unsaved work right before the cloud existed. We all remember losing our class projects in Microsoft word documents. When somebody tripped over the power, they're working on a kind of computing, which is called intermittent computing where Ram the sort of temporary memory which requires power to store information and storage, which in the old days was like hard drive or flash drive or even going back to punch cards those types of storage and memory are exactly the same. So you create a permanent storage, it uses so little energy. You can update it like Ram, but when you switch the power off. Nothing changes. So the cool thing about inter-meeting commuting is you can be doing a calculation and you're using solar power whatever cloud goes in front of the Sun. The computer loses all power. Instant and gets power again, it just picks rate left off it's a computer you never restart and it can operate forever, which is a weird concept and you think about it it's computing is infrastructure. So people have proposed. Let's put a strain sensor a little bit of computer center inside of fresh concrete that you're going to build into a bridge, and then for as long as bridge exists, and until that sensor breaks down, which is not going you imbedded in stone more or less. It will be able to sense its environment and you can sort of Ping it with a little bit of wireless power and I'll tell you like here's how this part of the bridge is doing, and so it's this enabling of what's called perpetual computing through something called intermittent computing. Also these really low power processors and then the really kind of mind bending thing that comes next is if this becomes the norm and we know it's already possible because people are doing in the lab. Sunday the majority of computers will be these tiny perpetual computers these little tiny sensors that we just kinda dot over our environment. So. Does that mean that we're heading towards a totally battery future or are there limits to how applicable this kind of technology really could be? So. This solution definitely only works on very simple applications. You can actually do a little bit of. I once trained the network to like listen for a week word or do some very elementary processing. Out at the edges, they say edge being the opposite to the cloud, but you're not going to have a battery free phone. For example, because our phones are just way too demanding in terms of their processors and their displays and all the rest, you're not going to have a battery free laptop but some of the things that your phone has to interact with now and query those things could be battery free.
Amazon Luna cloud gaming service launches with support for iOS
"At the top of show that Amazon got around with Apple App Store with apples help. Let us explain we mentioned yesterday that Amazon launched a game streaming system called Luna and we have a few more details about how that works on. IOS as we told you yesterday. It comes through the browser Luna will be a progressive web app or pwa we've told you about those before it means you can install an icon off Luna on your home screen on iOS run it separately from the rest of your browser. You're not going to see your other tabs or anything. It'll act like its own app, and technically it could even work offline. But since I bought it online game streaming service, that's not really a feature that applies here. It can act pretty much like an app, but without being subject to Apple's App Store rules because it's really just a very robust website that you're saying. Going to your home screen in Apple's recent streaming game guidelines. Apple actually wrote quote. Of course, there is always the open internet and web browser apps to reach all users outside of the App Store. They pointed at that and they said you could just do that if you wanted to an Amazon said, okay, I guess we want to Luna head of engineering and Technology George sip elitists who works for Amazon package said that Amazon worked with Apple's Safari team to make sure quote some of the things that weren't there are there and that allowed us to do kind of get where we are today. So they not only cooperated with Apple Apple Safari team apparently like added some functionality for them with their Progressive web apps you'd think Apple was like try to force them into the App Store know they didn't Amazon also says they're working with apple on a game app and we'll ship one when quote we can come up with a good experience. So Amazon saying like those new guidelines about the native apps didn't really work with us yet, but we're still working we're talking dog. Apple we're not suing them like epic has The Verge is Sean Hollister. Also wonders when Google and video Microsoft might follow suit Google runs stadia in Chrome already Nvidia GeForce need webrtc version for the Chromebook and a Sean points out. Yes. There are issues to web apps like controller support questions lack of all the optimizations you can do on a native app. And of course cos if you're running a progressive web app, it has to run on webkit. You don't get a choice of browser, but Amazon was able to make it work by working with Apple.
"nvidia" Discussed on Joey's Totally Tech
"Hi, everyone we've talked about nvidia graphics card rumors so now let's get on what some actual Ms. Samsung is possibly following apple's trend with watch faces speaking of which Apple IOS fourteen as Malan Public Beta. Attack CEO resigned after his racist rant goes viral. It's official Uber as purchasing post mates, and they're doing a lot more to and traders on Tiktok want you to buy a joke cryptocurrency. Walmart is launching Walmart plus Google, facebook and twitter temporarily halt government data requests in Sonia's launching a wearable air conditioner as well as invested in an epic games, akers discover video on used police, body, cams, and scientists discover Tetra Quirks. And Nassau's curiosity rover is making its way across Mars, so sit back. Relax because it's time for the news. Own, Joey's totally tat. Hi everyone that's Monday July twenty. Twenty though not twentieth or not Our Future July Thirteenth Twenty Tony and here's the past week's tech. News Samsung Galaxy Watch three software. Details have leaked the Samsung. Galaxy watched. Three will likely have customizable watch faces as well as updates to the music email and calendar APPs. Some of the faces will use informative digital edge, a feature which displays customer details like heart, rate, or the number of steps taken the leaked images show a date of July twenty second on the watch faces suggested that this may be revealed date. The company is expected to at least two size variants as well as lt n, Wi fi only. What you think. Are they copying apple here? The watch faces because. At. The worldwide developers conference apple announced customizable watch faces as well. Yeah I definitely think they're copying apple well. We know that apple is a trendsetter and. There's a history. Apple sets a trend. All the other companies follow I mean. I had an HP computer in my early twenties. Actually as my parents, not mine. At looked a lot like the Max that were coming out at the time. At least the Monitor did so yeah. They? You know I definitely think that they are following suit with apple, because apple is the trend setter and you know Samsung is competing with apple essentially, so they need to keep up with the Joneses so to speak. About? A lot of people claim apples no longer really Turk a style company. Yeah I can kind of second that that sounds about right because it's. It's seeming that way for her. Because android seems to be the first with certain features most of the time I. I don't know about the ANDROID. Smart watches, are they do they have customizable faces because i? Don't have a smart. Watch me neither. Yeah. We don't know about that. I'm tax. I'm attack expert. I don't use the smartwatch though. A retro type. Person Well. Let me tech, but you like. Why same skis me Samsung's GonNa be android though. I mean. I guess that might be something. That apple is actually doing as far as tech goes. It doesn't seem to be anything that would be that complicated. But Apple does have a tendency to wait for the others to do it first, and then they work on perfecting it, and they make it stylish to yeah all right, so at least so you're up next. All right so crumbs updates to excuse me. Crumbs update to improve your laptops battery life. If you're a google chrome user user, you may know, it has a reputation of being a battery Hog. however Google appears to be fixing this. An experimental feature in Croom, eighty eighty six will reduce energy usage by shutting down unnecessary Java scrip- timers and trackers when a tab is in the background such as ones that might check your scrolling position. Reportedly Google was saved two hours battery life in a test with thirty six background tabs and one blank. Co Foreground Tab. Of course these are extreme conditions, unless you're like Joey and working on website development, we're doing research for other projects of his. I've noticed on windows eight and windows ten when used a laptop. the laptop or not the laptop itself, but windows ten will try to get you switch over to edge, because apparently edge uses less battery life and it claims. Your browser baby, using more battery that what? Does. You know I can't remember the exact buses down. I'm on. Lenox. Thousand Lennox doesn't do that, but when does does to to do that quite a bit when I'm using chrome on a laptop as kind of annoying, but I'm glad, see chrome admitting it's a battery, hog or Google. They're admitting that. And there are fixing the problem. That's good. Yes, exactly and this has been a big story this week. A tech CEO has stepped down. After actually was the video that was a big story, but after a racist rant at a restaurant. and. It was called on video and it went viral. Lofthouse, who is the CEO of solid state, has resigned after a video of him. Giving a racist rant directed towards an Asian family. This happened at the Bernardus Lodge Hotel and Carmel Valley California. The OMAROSA family was at the restaurant celebrating Marie arrose birthday! Alcohol appears to be a factor in the incident. Lofthouse was also involved in a racially motivated altercation on social media later on. He has since apologized for the rant. Stating that was appalling behavior and has now resigned. Raymond Rosa who's Murray's husband rejected the apology during an interview with ABC San Francisco saying quote, he's just save face I think he really meant what he said and what he did I don't believe his words because his actions speak louder than words, or then the words, he sane end quote. But he also stated that he forgave law lofthouse. Solid date as a bay area cloud computing firm That's described serving to quote carefully guide clients through the final analysis and selected cycle with detailed.
"nvidia" Discussed on TechStuff
"However, so you have a trade off. The quality of the graphics might not be quite as high, but you can render them much more quickly which could improve things like the refresh rate. While in video was working on this. Another company came out with a product that had a big impact on the graphics card industry, and it also lead to conditions that convinced me to get out of PC gaming for quite some time. Not putting blame here just that it created an environment that I got increasingly. Disenchanted with the company and their product was not a bad one. By the way, the company was three d. FX interactive. It launched a year after NVIDIA had incorporated. So he lodged in nineteen ninety four and ninety five. They introduced a three d accelerated graphics card called the do, and this card was different from other graphics cards that had come before it because up to that point, graphics cards would typically integrate two d and three d graphics processing on a single mother board. But three d. FX created a card solely dedicated to three d graphics. So you could not just have a voodoo graphics card in a computer and have that you're only graphics card and have that work. You actually had to make it work with in parallel with a two d graphics card, a really in series. Because what you would do is you would take a VGA cable from your video control Ricard you're, you're. Basic graphics card in your computer, you would feed that cable into your vote. Do card, plug it in on the back of where the expansion card is, and then you'd take another cable and you'd hook the do card to your monitor. So you affectively had two different graphics cards doing work inside your computer, the do handling all the three d. stuff and then gave gamers a new option when building out computers to play games, like doom and quake, which were progressively putting more emphasis on three d models and they were pushing the boundaries of what PC's could do at that time before the do the most common way to keep up with gaming developments would be, you'd go and get an upgrade to your CPU which get it really expensive. So I remember when my family went from having a two eighty six IBM compatible to a four eighty six. And then later on we got a Pentium, but these. Graphics,.
"nvidia" Discussed on Google Cloud Platform Podcast
"Nvidia successful from the beginning is the company builds chips to solve important problems and the that are tailored to those particular problems so when invidia decided deep learning is the most important thing that we're going to be using our gp's for the next step was to customize the architecture for deep learning and volt has the first fruits of that effort and so the computational capabilities of volta are really astounding you know one voltage ep can run at over one hundred twenty tariff ops when you're training model and that's you know about ten times faster than the the speed that you would get on our prior generation gp and so that's that's a really exciting capability how does the architecture for something like volta differ from something like graphics volta is different in a lot of ways from our previous gp is it's just a lot more focused on compute workloads so especially the memory subsystem has been beefed up to handle the kinds of data patterns that that are required in in a lot of compute workloads it also has a lot faster injure arithmetic which is really useful for addressing math and more i would say complicated workloads where you need to do a lot of indexing math to figure out what data you're gonna load and operate on so the whole architecture has been revamped and then in addition to all those other features we added tensor chords which are essentially matrix multiply units that can do small matrix four by four by four matrix multiplications and the thing that's really great about tensor cores is that they dramatically reduce the energy cost of reading and writing the operations from the register file because the majority of the work happens inside of this bigger chunkier unit and you don't have to be constantly reading and writing all the intermediate results to register file and so that dramatically reduces the energy required to do a matrix multiplication which then makes the processor dramatically more efficient.

"Yeah so if you if you take in videos position at face value hypothetically and they are working with a company like issues and rg and they're putting their marketing dollars and their social media influence into it and they're and they're promoting ten sixty mobile laptops gaming laptops with ten sixty mobile chipset and oh it's great and they're going to talk about getting performance they're gonna show the sky room and government a more modern game destiny to whatever oh look at this it's great in the consumer understanding that most consumers don't follow this stuff most consumers buying gaming laptops or not watching this podcast reading haro c p they go to the store and they say oh i wanted to our g laptop i saw a commercial on it or something yeah oh here this one's cheaper they don't notice doesn't have it in video logo let's say it's a cabbie like g part right for example right is that has nothing to do with this right and they buy it and it doesn't perform to the same level that the commercials said okay i can understand that that's invidious position i don't agree i think that's nonsense but i guess that's their point is they don't want if they're going to put if there because they don't sell a lot of cards themselves they have their their flagship parts that they sell them but they rely on their partners if they're going to put that effort into their marketing and into their development with their partners they want to control that experience again i don't agree with that i don't think that's going to play out practically the other thing is i guess it is too late because some companies have already signed on but let's say enough partners resist and they don't get exclusive access they don't get early access they're not able to find tune the power delivery of the cards and the cooling and now you've got a generation of nvidia cards that come out that are not performing as well as they as as the reference to sign up that's a negative that nvidia that's blowback on video now that you've got us a set of a generation of products that.

"So this is an example of where phone technology has kind of transferred over and robotics your phone has an i'm you in it so it can tell which ways north and it can tell what it's worrying tation news and so we use basically exactly the same component and you can actually use that to sense the force that is being applied to the vehicle externally and so it's constantly seeing the force that it's experiencing from the world and then using that to estimate what's causing that and what it should do about that and we drones are constrain them sensors a different way them with guard yeah there's much stricter limits around the sensing in compute that you can carry and that's because the size of that because of the size and the weight everything that you're carrying you have to have propulsion to lift off of the ground so for example light or is very popular with selfdriving cars it is not feasible for drunk will it's feasible fairgrounds but it's not gonna work very well we did a lot of work with light are but the vehicles were super heavy super expensive so when we started scotty we made a big bet on vision because we felt like the progress it's happening in computer vision now uh especially with deep learning but even in sort of traditional geometric vision is just super fast in the amount of information that's in images is incredibly rich extracting that information is challenging but the tools to do that keep getting better and were really writing that wave we have 13 cameras on the device they see in every direction and then at its core it has a super powerful computer were using the nvidia tex one which is basically like a deep learning supercomputer that uses the same gpu designs they market texture that found in their cloud computing systems and all of that is necessary to run the software inflight algorithms that give it the autonomous behavior so break it down for what does that actually mean and scottie is case you're using cameras plus intelligence instead of light ira what are the layers that make that work we've developed what we call this guide you autonomy engine and that's basically the complete system that does all the perception decisionmaking and control of the vehicle so it's a technically very complex thing but it's actually fairly intuitive to understand what it's doing because it similar in a lot.

"Invidia side it's underneath the dashboard i think it's very likely the dow will be proving year on year and the biggest indication is a tesla said they expect autopilot hardware today to be possible to ex human capabilities but they want to get to 10x so i don't think that's fully software and they've said they expect their got to improve the sensors and that also i would expect means the hardware to process all at center data so they'll i'm sure will be talking about nvidia in a future in who knows maybe the show will last long enough that will get another nvidia update on we should get it level of award and put it in the back of my vw and see if we can it would be interesting to see like what kind of stuff we could do i i kind of just have the secret thing i wish we could make a little kit selfdriving car how how how far since we started to show has it come you could just bootstrap a selfdriving car with like totally free opensource with like writing just glue code tillich connect all these bits i think that be kind of fun would wildly danger would use this mixture it's a fivestar crush rating car yeah and you know will do will just run it on like a airship or something some someplace safe or in the simulation or in yet both has the thing we don't have to build the darn car we can just do it all in simulations now is exciting though definitely not at six down so before we end if anyone is planning to buy one of these new tesla's an apparently by the end of this month of october two thousand delegates counters going away for using our referral code from anwar beck over the tests a geek so if you are on the fence and want to save thousands of.

"With over one hundred million cars sold and many of these chips and the boards causing many thousands of dollars that's a huge huge business and could certainly eclipse the gaming market so what have they done so far so they've gun big partnerships with folks like toyota has said nvidia will power their full selfdriving audi has said they'll power their selfdriving volvo said the power their self selfdriving in mercedes as well so can we usually power you just mean like provide the hardware though yeah well that's what's interesting is they they will provide the hardware as sort of the base but similar to a lot of companies that builds hardware one of the things they do has to build software to entice people to use their hardware and so invidia has followed in that footstep and so they've built an entire stack and they've got they said i think they they they meant and they've got over five hundred engineer software engineers working on selfdriving awhile at the company and is that like as like sort of a like a reference implementation yeah or is is that meant to be like the final product well they're in licensing this software to people who uh by and have arrangements with them to buy the boards in volume so i was unable to download the software and run it on my own car or create a car you can get their developer boards off of amazon too if you're and yeah you can get yeah you can get the developer boards one off but they e e if you have a formal relationship with nvidia you can then get this entire stack of software so it's this dry drive a v so dr autonomous vehicle software which has all the software and so they've got the software called drive works which will say okay here software to take your radar your lied are your camera and do detection free space detection on the road localize you make hd maps pat planning.

"Compared to a cpu if you were running a neural network for detecting cars for instance and you feted a million images of cars it's gonna go through that process a lot faster on a gpu than it would on it same amount of power given to us a cpu crates or like you can imagine if you have like a hundred the so you have a thousand neurons at the entry level of your neural network and you have a thousand cores and your cpu gpu then it's a one to one you can loaded in and go if you have a cpu with like say four cores neto two of them might be used trump knows you might only have two kors available then you actually have to have those two cores due at five hundred times to two yet just compute that one level with a thousand inputs so yeah it's the idea of being able to do everything as close to real time were all at once as possible and so nvidia sort of stumbled into this and people started using their gpus for the scientific titasz and they realized that they kind of wanted a program so one way that a lot of people will interact with their jeep uses with direct acts or open g l which are these software middle layers that help saaf software developers right to the gpu but actually what nvidia sorta realizes that those weren't those were built for graphics and that a lot of these scientists and researchers actually wanted to use the gpus in ways that they had necessarily anticipated.

"But if you have a cpu that needs to do the you you hit diminishing returns on number of course in your cpap pretty quickly if you're doing something like photoshop or the some of these like video rendering tasks you can get a lot of benefit from it but there's a reason why most laptops are probably stuck around two to four maybe a couple more cores because you just actually don't see much benefit from it because you know you can't if you're typing a document you there's no way to lake you know spellcheck the next word 'cause you haven't type that yet so you can only took one word at a time or you know there's the number of things that you can and then you know the writing software that can kind of synchronize all these cores is is difficult as well so yeah right you hit some diminishing returns on this cpu but the the gpu it's it's it's a very very good task for that so that's why approach has worked really well there and that leads into the big renaissance has been happening and this convergence of gpus and what nvidia has been doing and what had been happening on the academic computer signed side of deep learning and what we've touched on in the past but from nvidia his point of view deep learning is an incredibly new and great way for them to sell more gpus because deep learning as we've talked about you have this massive amount of data that you want to load and sort of.

"I guess the one one sort of big thing is most people know about intel and that they have intel inside and it's this cpu and then there are nvidia graphics cards and the gamers have these cards and they put them into their machines and they make their games possible and like xboxes and things will have invidia processors in them so can you sort of share a little bit of the engineering or sort of behind the scenes of what makes a cpu better for the cpu things in why gp was even necessary sure sure so the the cpu is probably the the main thing people think about when the when they think about the chip that runs a computer um you you really couldn't of modern computer without it it's the central brain that does all of the it runs all of the programming that your whether you're right you're so for you buy or you know whether you're using a browser or whatever everything is is running mainly through the cpu and then eventually we started farming some graphics tasks out to this thing called the gpu the graphics processing unit and as you can imagine graphics is pretty repetitive so you've got let's see however many pixels are on your screen so if you have like you know a thousand pixels across by five hundred pixels tall which is not a real resolution but for the sake of argument that means you would have like what like five hundred thousand pixels and you you know you compute them all one by one and you do this over and over and over again and for when you get into like however many times a second you refresh like your refresh rate if you're doing it sixty times second that means you've got to process all of this and compute what each pixel we'll be in each of those 500000 places.
