“Over the past several years, graphics specialist NVIDIA has worked to fundamentally transform its business mix. In particular, the company has focused on growing revenue in its gaming, professional visualization, data center, and automotive businesses — what NVIDIA refers to as its ‘growth platforms,'” Ashraf Eassa reports for The Motley Fool.
“Although NVIDIA has made it clear that it has de-emphasized its OEM business, it apparently hasn’t completely given up on it,” Eassa reports. “Indeed, it would appear that the graphics specialist may be trying to win back spots inside of Apple’s Mac products — spots that it lost beginning with the late 2014 iMacs and mid-2015 15-inch MacBook Pro.”
“From the listing, we can see that NVIDIA is working on software to allow its graphics processors to function properly in future Mac products. In light of this, I wouldn’t be surprised to see Apple choose NVIDIA graphics processors for future iMacs, MacBook Pros, or both,” Eassa reports. “That said, we can’t really infer much about potential timing of NVIDIA’s inclusion in future Mac products from this job listing, if the company’s chips are ultimately selected.”
