    Nvidia's Tegra Chips For Mobile Devices

    Advertisement



    How about a new microprocessor for your Windows Mobile or Android device that will produce better graphics, more battery life (hallelujah!), and for your other mobile devices, allow an always-on internet connection? Sounds good, right? Well, PCWorld.com reported today that NVIDIA's new Tegra chips are finally ready for launch after almost a year of talk and speculation.

    Michael Rayfield, General Manager of the Mobile Business Unit at NVIDIA said during a press briefing that, "Other Tegra-based devices, including smartphones, mobile Internet devices and smartbooks, netbooks based on Arm chip designs, will start coming out later this year, Rayfield said, adding that smartbooks will be primarily offered through carriers" after remarking that the Zune HD will be the first device to launch with this new chip series. He also went on to say that Samsung in particular will be looking at launching a netbook featuring the chips and that, "The chips used in these devices could include the Tegra 600 running at 700MHz, Tegra 650 running at 800MHz.."

    While the majority of the story focuses on the impact on the Zune and Microsoft the chip will have, it is still well worth the read. Also, check out the link above on the Tegra chips, straight from NVIDIA.

    No kidding. It seems NVIDIA currently has only partnered with Microsoft and the OHA for these chipsets, but change occurs daily in this field, so who knows.
