NVIDIA developing low-power GPU architecture for MediaTek

According to DigiTimes sources, NVIDIA and MediaTek are in talk to design a new mobile processor.

AMD could soon compete with NVIDIA in a new market segment. NVIDIA is said to be working with MediaTek for a next-gen flagship mobile devices. This cooperation would mean that NVIDIA would make push for a new market segment, after focusing on high-power desktop and data-center GPUs.

The report claims that the next-gen mobile processor would see enhanced support for artificial intelligence and gaming. NVIDIA has the technology and resources to design exactly what MediaTek requires for such an endeavor. However, the architecture that is being designed would not only go into mobile phones, but also into Windows laptops (Windows on Arm architecture).

MediaTek is expected to integrate an Nvidia GPU into its next-generation flagship mobile processor as early as 2024, according to industry sources.

In addition to co-developing mobile handset platforms to enhance AI and gaming functionalities of MediaTek’s application processors, MediaTek and Nvidia will also cooperate in developing WOA (Windows on Arm) platform products for notebook applications, said the sources.

NVIDIA is no stranger to low-power GPU architectures, though. The company developed many Tegra SoCs for its Shield products as well as gaming consoles like Nintendo Switch. It is now expected to deliver an updated Tegra soc for the Switch successor. It wouldn’t be surprising if both the Switch and MediaTek SoC had similar GPU architectures.

Recently, Samsung announced it will extend the GPU licensing agreement with AMD. The company used RDNA2 architecture for its Exynos 2200 mobile processors. Samsung did not develop an Exynos successor yet, but there are rumors taht RDNA might make a comeback with Exynos 2400 SoC next year.
