Nvidia seizes third of Android tablet market

by on01 September 2011

Not much of a market to be honest
According to Strategy Analytics, Nvidia has managed to grab a third of the Android tablet market with its Tegra chips. Granted, this isn’t much of a market, but it still bodes well for Nvidia’s fledgling chip.

Tegra 2 is currently used in a number of ARMdroid tablets, including Motorola’s Xoom, Asus Eee Pad Transformer, Samsung Galaxy Tab series products and a few other products. Nvidia seized a 34.4 percent market share in Q1, but analysts expect its share was about 48.6 percent in Q2.

Tegra 3, the first practical quad core ARM chip, is slated to debut in a couple of months, but most products based on Tegra 3 chips will show up in early 2012.

As for the rest of the market, it is dominated by other ARM designers, while x86 accounts for less than five percent of the Tablet market, courtesy of a handful of Atom and Brazos based tablets running Windows.
