In a strategic move aimed at bolstering its standing in the realm of artificial intelligence (AI), Swiss telecommunications giant Swisscom has entered into a partnership with Nvidia. The collaboration, unveiled at the AI House Davos during the World Economic Forum, involves the creation of generative AI full-stack supercomputers utilizing Nvidia accelerators and AI software in Switzerland and Italy.

Nvidia, the graphics processing unit heavyweight, plans to enter Intel’s domain with ARM-based chips tailor-made for Windows PCs, according to insiders. AMD, another significant player in this space, is also reportedly considering ARM technology. This move, potentially hitting the market by 2025, has been stimulated by Microsoft’s interest in duplicating the efficiency of Apple’s ARM-use in AI processing. Yet, Nvidia’s past attempt to acquire ARM was thwarted by regulators, putting the company’s motives under scrutiny as the PC CPU sector braces for potential disruption.

Nvidia aims to convince telecoms to use its GPUs in 5G networks, citing NTT Docomo’s recent GPU-accelerated 5G launch in Japan. Yet, the role of Nvidia’s GPUs in telecom remains unclear. Meanwhile, the FCC breaks a two-year deadlock, reigniting net neutrality debates. Telefonica Germany partners with Skylo for global IoT connectivity, expanding options for businesses and consumers. Nokia explores rugged 5G devices for harsh environments, catering to specialized industries with challenging conditions.

After the British Competition & Market Authority (CMA) uncovered and voiced severe competition concerns, the planned 40-billion-dollar merger between American chipmaker Nvidia and Arm is at risk.   The CMA has expressed apprehension that the proposed relationship between Nvidia and the UK chip specialist Arm might be motivated by and be able to limit or even restrict access to the intellectual property (IP) of Arm. Currently, this technology is utilized to make semiconductor chips by firms that compete with Nvidia.   The potential absence of competition could interfere with innovation in various industries, including data centers and the Internet of Things (IoT). This might lead to products that are more costly or of reduced quality.   The CEO of the CMA Andrea Coscelli said: “We’re concerned that Nvidia controlling Arm could create real problems for NVIDIA’s rivals by limiting their access to key technologies, and ultimately stifling innovation across a…

Samsung’s next flagship phone chip, the Exynos 990, is 20% faster Samsung has released its new Exynos 990 flagship chipset together with the 5G-capable Exynos Modem 5123 that are expected to help the next generation of mobile devices make intensive use of video and artificial intelligence (AI) applications as well as 5G communications. The Korean electronics giant said that the Exynos 990 is 20 percent faster at executing ordinary processing tasks, 20 percent faster in graphics processing and twice as fast in software tuned for the chip’s AI acceleration scheme.

The company has compared the power of its GPU-accelerated EGX hardware to traditional CPU-based servers and claims that a…

The American chipset manufacturer Nvidia is rolling out its EGX platform to bring real-time artificial intelligence (AI) to the edge of the network. Nvidia EGX is an accelerated computing platform, which boasts low-latency AI that enables companies to perceive, understand and act in real time on continuous streaming data between 5G base stations, warehouses, retail stores, factories and beyond. AI computing will occur at the edge of the network, where sensors collect data before it is sent to cloud-connected data centers. This platform is expected to satisfy the increasing demand for AI applications to assist numerous devices streaming continuous raw sensor data and is designed for high-throughput AI at the edge where data is primarily sourced to achieve instantaneous and guaranteed response times while reducing bandwidth to the cloud. According to the company, by 2025, there could be up to 150 billion machine sensors and the Internet of Things (IoT) devices streaming…

Huawei and its VR OpenLab business partners introduced the Dual-G Cloud VR Initiative at the 16th Huawei Global Analyst Summit (HAS). The companies contributing to this initiative include Nvidia, BOE, Cyber Cloud, Letin VR, Skyworth VR, Pico, DPVR, iQIY, and Growlib, and together they will promote continuous innovation in the industry and accelerate the large-scale commercial use of Cloud VR. Under this initiative, Huawei’s iLab and X Labs will function as incubation centers to cooperate with platform, content, and terminal service providers, as well as chip and screen vendors. The participants will have the opportunity to build Gigaband and 5G Cloud VR business products and explore possibilities regarding gigabit home broadband and 5G. Richard Jin, President of the Huawei Transmission and Access Product Line, said, “With joint promotion by industry partners and global operators, the Cloud VR industry is booming. Thanks to the extensive collaboration of all parties…
