Tegra 3 has more design wins than predecessor

Written by Fuad Abazovic

Huang officially confirms

Nvidia's has just reported a relatively qood quarter with $1.07 billion revenue and $217 million net income. Nvidia calls it differently but for the rest of the world this is Q3 2011.

CEO Jensen Huang was present at the conference call and he talked about a few interesting things, including Tegra 3. He said that Tegra 3 has more design wins than Tegra 2 in both mobiles and tablets. In the conference call, Nvidia said that Tegra 2 found its place in 23 tablets and 13 phones, where three of them started shipping this quarter.

Tegra 3 phones are promised in early 2012, nothing precise than that and Asus Transformer Prime as a first tablet should start shipping in a “few weeks”. Tegra 3 uses less power for everyday functions, Nvidia claims but as you can imagine it is more expensive than a traditional dual-core chip.

Right now it looks like OMAP 4 has its momentum as Texas Instruments made it into two key affordable tablets Kindle Fire and Nook Tablet, as well as a few latest Motorola phones and Xoom 2 tablet. With Tegra 3, Nvidia should follow a positive trend with a good chance of becoming a more important player in this increasing lucrative market.

Nvidia promises one new chip a year, a roadmap pace that Qualcomm, TI and other key players will struggle to keep up with.

Tegra 3 is shipping this quarter and not Tegra 2. Where as Tegra 2 was available in 23 Tablets and 13 phones.

Oh Fuad when will you learn that anything Mr Huang is saying is nearly pure made up fantasy. We all remember how many design wins Tegra 2 was supposed to have and how many devices actually shipped in reasonable numbers. We also know that Tegra3 did not hit the promised performance mark and it the battery will suffer when it has to switch between 4 to 1 core mode constantly

Quoting STRESS:

Will love to see proof of that! It's pretty amazing to read people writing stuff without proof. This isn't semiaccurate you know, where what you made up is presented as fact...
Tegra 2 was available in ALL its design wins, as soon as software was ready. The problem that especially plagued tablets, was the lack of proper software to release them with (Android wasn't ready for tablets). You should have enough skills to read about that from quite a few months ago. As for Tegra 3, will wait to see that proof of yours. And do yourself a favor: Actually back up your claims and stop being stupid.

Who is looking forward to the Tegra 3? Quad core processors now coming to smartphones in 2012. Visit www.tegra3.org for more info.
