40 nm is the right process for Tegra at the moment

CES 2012: Tegra general manager believes

We had a chance to talk with two top guys from Nvidia - General manager of Tegra Mike Rayfield as well as General manager of Mobile group Rene Haas. We wanted to see what these guys expect from 2012 and the mobile market.

Mike Rayfield said he believes that for the first half of 2012, Tegra will rely on the 40nm process. Both chaps are aware of the birth of 28nm process probably more than any of us, but when the Kal El, Tegra 3, was in its design phase, the 28nm process was not available.

Naturally, Nvidia wants to get to 28nm and launch its next generation Wayne chip as soon as it can, but it probably won't get to that point until late 2012 or early next year. Nvidia believes that it has a good chance with Tegra 3 against Qualcomm quad core and OMAP 5, but we will get to that at some other time.

Rayfeild also confirmed more design wins with Tegra 3 than with Tegra 2.

I have to say that, given this chip is still 40nm, its performance and power characteristics are very impressive.

All fanboy-ism aside, Nvidia seems to have done a really good job, given their limited experience in mobile.

28nm should bring good things.

Im sick of "more design wins" propaganda of Nvidia. Next Tegra 4 it will say more design wins against Tegra 3 and Tegra 5 more design wins against Tegra 4.... Never ending more more... but in reality I only see 2-4 products selling it. :-*

We should discuss why we will buy it not the competitor. That's more smarter...

Quoting pogsnet:

> > > You realy can't be correct informed by yourself?

Tegra 3 is expected to be in a lot of tablet and a few high end phones. Tegra 3 is also used in future HPC super computers. 2012 a new year has just begun... and every major PC brand have Tegra 3 products.
