Nvidia claims 200 Sandy Bridge design wins

Written by


Green team in the green
Nvidia representatives have been claiming success in securing Sandy Bridge design wins for months and the company has finally revealed some numbers.

The green team has managed to score more than 200 design wins for Geforce chips in upcoming Sandy Bridge notebooks. The new notebooks should appear in the first half of 2011 and we suspect most of them will feature Optimus switchable graphics, which was Nvidia's main selling point to begin with.

Nvidia claims the list of OEMs who have chosen to include Geforce chips in their new notebooks includes major players such as Acer, Alienware, ASUS, Dell, HP, Lenovo, Samsung, Sony, Toshiba and even Fujitsu-Siemens, despite the fact that the Fujitsu-Siemens joint venture was dissolved more than two years ago. Somebody should probably break the news to Nvidia.

They may have 200 design wins - but I'd say quality goes over quantity.

And I simply don't see a huge market for Nvidia/Optimus in notebooks/netbooks.

The GPU in Intels Sandy Bridge is really a big step forward compared to the old crappy integrated Intel GPUs.

Yeah, they had a lot of 'design wins' for Tegra too and look what happened to them. Typical NV PR bullshit.

Of course, but 'design win' is a really a broad term, especially when used by spinners.

It can apply to a bunch of SKUs of practically the same notebook family, hence we could see a few dozen actual models with x different SKUs per each model...

Actually, there are lots of Tegra2 devices coming in January 2011. Especially Android smartphones (from LG, Samsung, ...)

Congratulations are in order i suppose. My only concern is their bad reputation in the mobile devices, in the past they practiced a controversial strategy of selling faulty chips in big volumes in this segment of the market.

Samsung are not releasing a Tegra-powred phone in January. Don't troll. There is ONE phone (from LG), and a few tablets. Still nowhere near hundreds.

Wait and see how badly the battery life sucks on all these devices, by the way.

Now even Fudzilla reports something along those lines: "Nvidia reportedly lands Tegra 2 order from Samsung" http://fudzilla.com/home/item/21259-nvidia-reportedly-lands-tegra-2-order-from-samsung

Now WHO's trolling 8)

That's pure speculation. Samsung and nVidia are competitors in the SoC market.
In case you didn't know, Samsung make their own SoC's and they make them well.

Uhm, we clearly said that such a deal is very unlikely.

It's just speculation and it did not originate with industry sources or leaks, but rather analysts, who may or may not have their own agenda.

200 design wins ? I shall slash both intel's and nvidia's design wins by a four fold .

Honestly , the best contender is really only , AMD .
