Jen Hsun-Huang talks about Tegra and the nTersect Blog expands on why NVIDIA, and the world, is ready for tablets.
Tegra is the name of the System on Chip designed by NVIDIA to be very low power but also deliver high performance 3D graphics as well as high quality video and audio abilities. Using a dual core Cortex-A9 processor at its heart with a custom NVIDIA 3D part the SoC is going to be used in many small form factor devices such as smartphones and tablets in 2010. The NVIDIA CEO claims a less than one watt power consumption rating for the device and uses, “…20 to 50 times less power than a PC.”
Jen Hsun-Huang spoke to CNN Money about the prospects of this new market and its future profitability. The NVIDIA blog nTersect expands on why the world is finally ready for devices such as the Apple iPad, Microsoft Courier and HP Slate.
“With all this amazing content available [online], we just need a way to consume it. And this is where Tegra comes into the picture. The new Tegra-based tablets can handle all the rich media on the web, and they do it in a way that takes full advantage of a tablet’s portability and interface.”
