Didn't Nividia also say that they don't need the consoles, and will be focusing on mobile devices?

Losing a contract with Google is not a great start...

Why is anyone surprised? There's no need for CUDA /PhysX on tablets.

No need, you say?

Yup. Because it is only useful if software on the devices bother use PhysX ... I can't recall any at the top of my head (maybe except a few games games, but that'll be a hard sell). For what most people use their mobile devices for, PhysX is useless in it's current state...

The chance of seeing Tegra 4 in cheap devices is very low. Seeing as Sammy, HTC, Sony and Google have shunned them this round, I wonder how much of a hit the projected sales of Tegra 4 is gonna take.

Tegra 4 is freaking powerful, yup. But how many smartphones/tablet can justify the kind of power for the price? This will be an interesting year for Nvidia's profits ...

This is exactly what I was thinking. Terga 4 is for high end tablets due to cost.

The Nexus 7 would need to be priced higher for the chip, and to have a larger battery in order to have Terga 4.

Another thing i've been reading quite consistently is that Tegra 4i is the only nvidia chip that supports LTE, and it's getting to market wayyyyyyyy too late to support the nexus 7 take 2. the only logical choice for google if they want LTE/4G support is snapdragron. here's hoping.

You can't loose something you don't have in the first place. They are rather missing out on it.

Also to all the people saying T4 is too expensive, how do you know? Is so proof would be nice or else it's just a hearsay.

Thing is too see SoC in a lower end device it should be either low end one from the start or have a high demand.

More on the second option, once Nvidia have a high volume production, it would end up with a multiple SKUs of SoC based on binning. The first N7 used the slowest SKU of T3 hence it was relatively cheap.

Nvidia at the moment is in the transition, T4 will start out in high end devices and one manufacturing cost starts to decrease and lower end chips stock would increase, T4 will find it's way into cheaper devices.

i could think of a few uses Nvidia could use the cortex-a15 model of tegra 4 for, other than tablets.

Now the real question is...

If you in the tablet market.. Is this news worth the wait of 3 months to get the 2.0 version over the original?

In the market for a table, but I havent sold myself on anything yet, but the Nexus 7 is a top contender.

Tegra 4 isn't due until Q3 2013... So it'll be next round that they come into play.
