But if I knew how to manage my portfolio safer and smarter than most hedge fund managers, I could realistically grow my wealth.
NVIDIA is targeting growth areas through its GPUs
In early 2013, NVIDIA (NVDA) launched GRID. It’s a cloud gaming platform that requires graphics processing units (or GPUs) to deliver graphics performance remotely.
In early 2013, NVDA launched GRID. It’s a cloud-based gaming hardware and visual computing appliance that streams games from the cloud to connected devices and SHIELD.
Kepler chips were considered NVIDIA’s highest-performance GPUs. The recently launched Maxwell GPUs offer twice the power efficiency and 40% more performance per CUDA core.
NVIDIA developed the Tegra line of chipsets. Tegra mobile processors run on devices like smartphones, tablets, and PCs. They can also be embedded into smart devices.
NVIDIA’s (NVDA) Tegra processor is a system-on-chip (or SoC) that integrates an entire computer on a single chip. In FY14, NVIDIA launched the next generation Tegra K1 mobile SoC.
Out of the GPU portfolio, NVIDIA developed “Tesla.” Tesla are high-end professional graphic chips that are specifically for high-performance computing (or HPC).
NVDA Quadro refers to professional graphics cards, or GPUs, that are targeted towards professionals working in computer-aided design, video editing, special effects, and related applications.
NVIDIA stated that notebook gaming grew at a compound annual growth rate (or CAGR) of 51% in the last three years. As new games are launched, it’s expected to drive the growth of its GPUs.
NVIDIA’s (NVDA) GeForce GTX graphics processing units (or GPUs) are developed for the PC gaming space. PC is the only open platform for gaming.
Since GPUs are installed into every system or PC before they’re shipped, they indicate the PC market’s health. The Gaming PC segment requires higher-end GPUs.
NVIDIA has a broad portfolio of GPU products. Its GPU products cater to specific markets and applications. GPUs are used across multiple end markets.
Neither Microsoft nor Yahoo! Inc. are likely to threaten Google in the near term. But Google must continue to evolve to sustain its market position.
On the surface, it seems like this deal would benefit Yahoo a lot. After all, Yahoo is struggling in the core search market.
NVIDIA’s business focuses on visual computing. It ensures and enforces connectivity through computer graphics. Its graphics chips cater to all of the major computing platforms.
There’s another market in which Google and Mozilla compete directly. It’s the low-cost smartphone operating system market.
Mozilla Firefox has a relatively smaller share of the browser market. But its decision to replace Google with Yahoo will hurt Google.
Google Express helps retailers grow business. But it also enables customers to avoid the need to visit stores, which reduces impulse purchases.
Google Express works directly with local retailers, while Amazon maintains its own warehouses and has a much larger selection of items to choose from.
Google’s product listing ads are the ads that appear alongside a search query. The ads link directly to an e-commerce site, where users can shop online.
Most downloaded apps are used only once, then deleted. This user behavior prompted changes to be made to Google’s AdMob.
