[Guru3d] Nvidia's Tegra Announced

I have not ahd the time to write this news due to Computex crazyness, but on Tuesday NVIDIA announced a line of ARM11-based media processors aimed at bringing 3D graphics capabilities to a variety of handhelds, from smartphones to so-called "mobile internet devices" (MIDs).

The line's name is Tegra, and it consists of the company's previously announced APX 2500 system-on-chip (SOC) part—now re-branded as the Tegra APX 2500—as well as two brand new SOCs, the Tegra 600 and the Tegra 650.

Aimed at both smartphones and Intel's new "MID" (Mobile Internet Device) line it will feature an all-in-one system on a chip design boasting some serious video and imaging processing power along with a very energy efficient design. The Tegra APX 2500 is the smartphone variant, and it promises full 720p HD video capture and playback along with a 12 MP camera (yes, twelve megapixels) and HDMI out.

Sounds good to me - NVIDIA, you want to go ahead and send me a prototype to play with?

Take a close look at that video and then think about the fact that these are low-power SoCs that contain an ARM11 CPU core, an NVIDIA-designed GPU core, a DDR166 memory controller, and I/O functionality (flash, USB, HDMI) all on one die, and they can do high-definition video decoding (720p and 1080p) at good frame rates.
