GTC 2017 - NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang has come out with some fighting words for its main competitor AMD, and their upcoming Radeon RX Vega graphics card, with the Huang saying he's confident in NVIDIA's position in the gaming GPU market.
NVIDIA has no competition in the high-end market against their GeForce GTX 1070, GTX 1080, GTX 1080 @ 11Gbps, GTX 1080 Ti, Titan X(P) and the new TITAN Xp. AMD has their upcoming Radeon RX Vega graphics card family, but we're still weeks away from its release.
After NVIDIA's unveiling of their new Volta-based Tesla V100 graphics card, Blayne Curtis from Barclays Capital Inc. asked Huang: "I was just wondering if you can just talk about the competitive landscape looking back at the last refresh. And then looking forward into the back half of this year, I think your competitors have a new platform. I'm just curious as to your thoughts as to how the share worked out on the previous refresh and then the competitiveness into the second half of this year".
Huang replied with: "My assessment is that the competitive position is not going to change".
They're fighting words, Huang - and now it's over to you, Team Red.
