[Androidized] Nvidia Is Killing Its Competitors in the ARM Chip Race  

post #1 of 50
Thread Starter

Nvidia promised us the first dual core Tegra 2 last year at CES, and they kept their promise, shipping for the first time in September in a Toshiba smartbook, and later in some noname tablets. Because of this, it mostly went unnoticed, and only now that some big companies like Motorola, Samsung and LG are launching tablets and smartphones with it, the world notices Tegra 2 is finally here. But now they are making yet another bold claim – that in August this year we’ll see for the first time a quad core Tegra 3 chip in a tablet.

I thought nvidia said it was 5x more powerful than Tegra 2, and where did they say it would be out in August?

You should also put any sources that you cited in your article (the androidized one).

Can I get a damn dual core first, Nvidia????? Thanks for making my future phone seem outdated before it gets released.

On a side note, I can't believe how fast mobile tech is moving now.

you knwo i wish companies would ship their products first and finally when sales slow down, they'd announce a new tech or else it just seems like theyre tryin to rip everyone off.

You already have a 512 core nvidia card. Most applications for the mobile market are still not exceeding single core usage.

Although it is good to at least start the multi-core mobile market and then have programs catch up. Mobile platforms are pretty closed to begin with.

How are they trying to rip everyone off? They've made it pretty clear from the start that they will have a pretty strict timeline and performance expectation for their Tegra releases. I think they'd be ripping everyone off if they came out and said, "Tegra 3 isn't being released for 5 years," then released it within a year. I'd argue that what they're doing is NOT trying to rip everyone off.

Also, your wishes seem to be foolish. You'd rather have them stifle their entire market, delay releases, and fail to advance technology so you could have the "latest and greatest" for longer? I'm sorry, this is technology, not a Hershey's bar.

Seems like a real can of whoop@ss to me! I wonder if Samsung is up for the challenge to compete with Nvidia on this one. They sure have the resources. `

couldnt have said it better myself! Haha, the idea that advancing technology very rapidly is ripping people off is absurd. A free market may not be perfect but it absolutely is the best one in existence.

Ah the irony, I finish reading the quote and my single core 1ghz phone that I'm browsing on complains about battery level

i agree i think the cell phone market is moving way too fast, espcially here in the states since we have to get contract and stuff, you buy a phone and 3 month later its twice fast counterparts comes out, come on people, they should at least space it out so people are confident in there purchases, if anything this triggers for a never ending wait for a better tech
