NVIDIA’s Tegra 2 dual core processor is powerful enough to handle some 1080p HD video, 3D stereoscopic video, and some pretty impressive 3D games. It almost seems like more performance than you really need for a phone with an 4 inch display or a tablet with a 10 inch screen — the two sizes that seem to be the most common for Tegra 2-powered devices. But now it looks like we could start to see Tegra tablets with much larger screens.

Atmel and NVIDIA have announced plans to collaborate touchscreens up to 15 inches powered by NVIDIA Tegra 2 chips.

Atmel’s maXTouch touchscreen chipset enables support for up to 16 simultaneous touch inputs, and the company also bosts excellent response time and low power consumption.

There’s no word on when we might see the first devices with these large touchscreen displays hit the streets, but I could see a 12 to 15 inch Tegra 2-powered tablet making a rather impressive multimedia or gaming device.
