NVIDIA's Cloud Gaming

NVIDIA announces NVIDIA GRID, their own entry into the cloud computing area, saying they are "building on a unique legacy in gaming graphics and graphic performance to lead the way" in this area pioneered by Gaikai and OnLive. This page has further details, claiming their implementation will allow more concurrent users per server, lower latency, and better game content. Here's an overview: "NVIDIA GRID leverages some of this same technology to render and stream games from the cloud, with thousands of engineers dedicated to creating the ultimate system for service operators. Think of it as a gaming supercomputer in the cloud, built by NVIDIA."

Anyone else notice that Nvidia is setting itself up to be in a prime spot in the cellphone/tablet/portable gaming market pretty rapidly?

They're too late to the party.

I don't think they want to be in the consumer market, anyway. They see the compromises companies need to make. They'd rather sell a ton of Tegra processors to those going to the consumer than risk destroying their OEM model. Going directly to the consumer rarely works out well for companies not known for doing so.

Very, very, very rarely.

They've been pushing the Tegra for a while now, the SoC market is big and only getting bigger and I'd estimate that there's a lot more money there than in graphics cards. I remember some quite impressive looking Android games being Tegra exclusive to much annoyance, hopefully they're going for more carrot than stick promotion now.

They're later to the party than is ideal but it's still worth going for with massive rewards.
