NVIDIA Tegra 2 coming to CES in January; Smartphone rollout 2nd half 2010

Looks like we'll never get to see that sweet Tegra chipset in a smartphone anytime soon, with the Zune HD coming the closest to such a device.

That's okay, as NVIDIA is poised to launch its next version of the powerhouse chipset in January at CES (and we'll be there to cover it, of course).  At CES, they will demonstrate the chipset on current and upcoming smartbooks, MIDs, netbooks and the like, then in the second half of the year a big push into the smartphone world.

We obviously don't really need to point out what is launching in late 2010, do we?

The Tegra 2 chip, at least according to Slashgear, is "...expected to have roughly twice the power and graphical capabilities of the original and be based on 40nm processes."  Considering how awesome the Zune HD is, that sounds pretty sweet to us if accurate.

Now just close your eyes and imagine it is one year from now ... aaahhh ... technology bliss and why am I fatter?

  • Too bad my bubble keeps popping with MS will screw up the WM and Zune integration.
  • by end of next year?
    WTF? there will be a load of MULTI-core Cortex ARM designs already on the market by then from Samsung, Broadcom, TI, Qualcomm, etc Nvidia can't mess up and have another Tegra "no show". having it in the Zune HD and Samsung M1 PMP is hardly enough of a design-win to keep the company making chips without selling them.
  • Meh. I dunno what all the fuss is with Tegra. Pretty much no-one uses Tegra for a good reason, they're no better than the competition. The original Tegra with its ARM11 core was outdated when it finally appeared in the Zune and the Tegra 2 will be overshadowed by other ARMv7-based chips like the TI OMAP3 and Qualcomm Snapdragon.
