Nvidia keeps on trucking with Volta GPU and Toyota car deal

The GPU Technology Conference (GTC) was the stage on which Nvidia delivered a pile of news announcements, including a new GPU (Volta), a GPU cloud computing offering, robot testing platform, and business partnerships with Toyota and SAP. Following some healthy Q1 results, the company continues its barnstorming progress, while its closest rival, AMD, continues to flounder, and Intel eyes its data center incursion nervously. But the silicon industry is already looking at the next generations of chips that might power increasingly complex compute tasks. Google has its Tensor Processing Unit, an extremely optimized chip for machine-learning functions, as well as plugging away on quantum computing chips too, and Intel is still plugging away with its immense R&D budgets – dedicated…
