Before anyone gets too excited OTOY is *not* a public company right now.
We just published our Thought Leader Interview with Jules Urbach, the Founder and CEO of OTOY. Unlike many of the other players in the space, Jules and OTOY have not been out endlessly hyping and promoting their technology. As Jeff Bezos has recently said, the future of product marketing is in making great products and customer experiences.
OTOY has tamed the massive power of GPU computing to make cloud computing for the most demanding gaming and engineering applications possible. There are a number of fundamental innovations and strong implementations that enable the OTOY “magic” that can deliver stunning content and interactivity inside a browser or mobile Internet device.
More generally, this interview touches on some of the larger industry players including Google, Apple, Nvidia, AMD and Intel along with some approaching key crossover points in the market as technology evolution around broadband speeds, content quality and social networks continues.
The GPU is being woven into the thread of nearly every application and this trend is firmly rooted. For example most of the leading browsers will be exploiting GPU technology to accelerate performance. The same is true for gaming consoles and devices. Microsoft even developed their own silicon that combines CPU and GPU for a future Xbox. So the GPU has become mainstream and new applications are being spawned that will keep the technology curve moving up and to the right. Singularity anyone?
