Sure, I can count the number of existing or upcoming apps from major companies with NVIDIA Tegra 2 processors on two hands. But that hasn’t stopped NVIDIA from forging ahead with the next version of its Tegra chip… and the version after that.
NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang says that the company is almost done with its Tegra 3 chip, and work has already started on Tegra 4, with a new Tegra chip expected every year.
The Tegra chipset combines a low power ARM-based processor with NVIDIA graphics to enable 3D graphics and HD video playback, among other things, on low power devices including tablets, smartphones, portable media players, and netbooks/smartbooks.
Products using the second generation Tegra chip include:
- Notion Ink Adam tablet
- eLocity A7 Android tablet
- Toshiba AC100 smartbook
- Toshiba Folio 100 tablet
- e-Noah Interpad tablet
- Hannspree Android tablet
- Malata ZPad tablet
- A line of upcoming smartphones from LG
