However, it's been more than two years since Nvidia introduced first generation Tegra chips and we can't say that it has much to be optimistic about, as very few products actually use it.

Nvidia’s Vice President of Mobile Content Neil Trevett told a gathering of developers that Tegra chips would soon find their way into smartphones, tablets and car infotainment systems, courtesy of Audi.
