No longer solely the focus of avid gamers, the Graphics Chip that accelerated the rendering of 2D & 3D pixels on PC Monitors for more than 3 decades, now finds most attention applying that same parallel processing hardware to accelerating Compute, Cryptocurrency, AI and even remote rendering in the Cloud. But as we move into the next era of visual computing at the Edge, with Glasses-free Holographic displays, MicroLED powered AR glasses, and GaN Emitters combined with CMOS Image-Sensors on Silicon backplanes at over 1000 pixels per-inch, can this old GPU Accelerator Architecture keep up with the “Internet of Display Things” ? Is it even the right architecture for any of these jobs going forward ? This talk will cover how the next generation of visualization is also enabling the next generation of AI, Compute and Graphics at the Visual Edge.
