Jensen calls Tegra 2 tablets a success

Early products had issues, now all great

When asked by an analyst about Tegra 2 during Nvidia fiscal Q2 2012 conference call, CEO Jen Hsun Huang did admit that the original few tablets did had many issues at start, mainly OS related.

Now with the introduction of Android 3.1 and 3.2 “fabulous software” Jensen believes that most obstacles are gone and that there is nothing in the way of Tegra 2 tablets to become a mega success.

Tegra 2 tablets are getting better all the time and they are getting thinner and lighter. He also confirmed that 7 inch tablets are coming and that WiFi version of some of the tablets for $399 are definitely priced right. He didn’t say that first versions were too expensive but you can read between the lines.

Jensen sees a lot of innovation around tablets as they “started clumsy but fixed itself quickly” but you can see a lot of innovation, such as Asus Transformer and you can get them as thin as Samsung Galaxy 10.1 tablet.

Jensen calls Tegra 2 tablet sales “wonderful” but we believe that sales could have been much better. Many agree that sales are getting better and better but we are not sure what to say about Jensen’s fiscal Q2 2012 conference call and claim that Nvidia see Tegra 2 tablets as huge success.

Sales of Tegra 2 accounts 30 percent of market, probably of what’s left of the market when you don’t include Apple’s tablets, but Nvidia was not clear on that. The tablet hype simply failed to materialize for anyone but Apple at least in the first half of 2011. Sales were ok, but many have expected much more.

He claims lots of NEW design wins for Tegra.. and yet revenues for Tegra were flat. Something doesn't add up here. Huang misleading the investors?

Couple that with poor management that has led to hot, slow, power hungry, pricey chips.

Tegra = fail. Fermi = fail. Time for him to go.

Tegra 2 was clearly a success for nvidia as it took them from near 0% market share to a major player in the portable soc market. Being as the whole portable devices market is the major growth market today that's a pretty good position to be in.

I couldn't agree more. Fermi architecture has even lower IPC compared to previous GTX 2x0 series, as the GTX 295 was consistently faster than the GTX 480 except in VRAM bound situations. Fermi was indeed a fail, but it paved the way for a more refined, efficient nShitia GPU (Kinda doubtful though LOL). The fact that nShitia has mislead its investors several times, reporting false SEC claims, paper launches, bump gate fiasco, inept management and their Kal-El is dead before being out, pityful position for nShitia.
