NVIDIA wants new Tegra Processor to power the Tablet revolution
NVIDIA has launched its Next Generation Tegra, saying it is the world's first processor for the mobile web, specifically designed for the high-resolution needs of tablets.

NVIDIA's new Tegra processor can deliver a portable, high-resolution, no-compromise Internet experience by combining browsing, streaming 1080p video and Adobe Flash Player 10.1 acceleration with an immersive 3D user interface and days of battery life.

"Without question, 2010 is going to be year of the tablet," said Tim Bajarin, President, Creative Strategies, Inc. "The new NVIDIA Tegra processor has a unique feature set critical for tablets -- fast web browsing with fully rendered pages, uncompromised graphics, snappy user interface and HD video -- all with the battery life we've only seen with cell phones."

Key to Tegra's capabilities are eight independent processors, including the world's first dual core CPU for mobile applications. These processors are used together or independently to optimize power usage at all times. With its ultra low-power design, Tegra delivers over 16 hours of HD video or 140 hours of music -- on a single charge.

Next Generation Tegra is a leap in mobile computing performance with the world's first dual-core ARM Cortex A9 CPU running up to 1GHz, eight independent processors to handle web browsing, HD video encode and decode and mobile 3D gaming, 10x faster than the processors used in smartphones today, and up to 4x the performance of the previous generation Tegra processor.

Next Generation Tegra is now in production. Developers can order the Tegra Developer Kit to create applications for Tegra-powered devices such as tablets, smartbooks and smartphones at
