    Nvidia to make ARM CPU/GPU hybrids for desktops??

    I saw this on the OcUK forums:

    IIRC,Windows 8 will support ARM CPUs and Apple is also working on its ARM CPUs too.

    Will anyone trust it to have a future though?

    Windows NT ran on PowerPC, MIPS and DEC Alpha but all were killed off for political not technical reasons. I remember seeing a Windows CE device fail because Microsoft removed CE support for the SH3 cpu it used giving it no future.

    It could be that Nvidia are actually doing the porting work, in which case if they continue to foot the bill then it will work.
