New NVIDIA Tegra 2 Processor Powers Tablets - GeForce Fermi in Action at CES 2010


NVIDIA today launched its Next Generation Tegra, the first processor for the mobile web, specifically designed for the high-resolution needs of tablets.

NVIDIA's new Tegra processor combines quick browsing, streaming 1080p video and Adobe Flash Player 10.1 acceleration with a 3D user interface and days of battery life.

"Without question, 2010 is going to be year of the tablet," said Tim Bajarin, President, Creative Strategies, Inc. "The new NVIDIA Tegra processor has a unique feature set critical for tablets -- fast web browsing with fully rendered pages, uncompromised graphics, snappy user interface and HD video - all with the battery life we've only seen with cell phones."



Key to Tegra's capabilities are eight independent processors, including the first dual core CPU for mobile applications. These processors are used together or independently to optimize power usage at all times. With its ultra low-power design, Tegra delivers over 16 hours of HD video or 140 hours of music - on a single charge, Nvidia claims.

Tegra is offering:

- 3D touchscreen user interfaces
- Increased battery life
- Adobe Flash Player 10.1 acceleration for streaming video and 3D mobile games
- Resolution ranging from four-to-eight times that of smartphones
- Form factors and screen sizes ranging from 5-15 inches
- Gaming, photos and video, and audio
- The first dual-core ARM Cortex A9 CPU running up to 1GHz
- Eight independent processors to handle web browsing, HD video encode and decode and mobile 3D gaming
- 10x faster than the processors used in smartphones today, and up to 4x the performance of the previous generation Tegra processor
- TSMC 40nm process with active power management

The next generation Tegra is now in production.

At CES 2010, NVIDIA is hosting many new tablets that are powered by the new Tegra. NVIDIA and the Verizon Wireless LTE Innovation Center are demonstrating a full 1080p HD Internet experience on touchscreen tablets.

The demonstration - on an NVIDIA Tegra-powered Ultra tablet, designed by Innovative Converged Devices (ICD) utilizing the ultra-broad bandwidth of a Motorola 4G wireless modem, operating over a pre-commercial Verizon Wireless LTE network.

A slew of tech companies are showing off new slate or tablet PCs at the Consumer Electronics Show, seeking to steal the limelight from a widely expected tablet from Apple in late January.

The prototype has a 7-inch screen, runs on Google Android operating system, and has room for 32 gigabytes of external memory. It carries a chip from Nvidia Corp and a modem from Motorola.

The device, which is expected to retail for about $300, is able to stream movie trailers wirelessly, and said the device could also download and store video to watch later.



But whether this particular prototype ever becomes a commercial product depends on a variety of factors, including the successful deployment of Verizon Wireless' LTE high-speed wireless network, which is expected to be available in 25 to 30 markets this year.

Verizon Wireless has announced plans to build a 4G LTE network in the United States, with 25 to 30 markets rolling out in 2010.



The Fermi GeForce card up and running

Nvidia did not provide any information related to the upcoming GeForce graphics cards that will feature the "Fermi" architecture. The first card, which will be possibly dubbed GF100 according to uncomfirmed information, was part of a PC system used by Nvidia during a demonstration for journalists before Nvidia's official keynote.

Journalists from the Japanese PC Watch, web site report that Nvidia did not disclose any pricing or performance details of the GF100. However, Nvidia's representatives seem to be certain that the new Fermi GeForce card will be the fastest Direct X 11 GPU in the world.

Nvidia showacased the horsepower of the the GF100 running a first DirectX 11 benchmark released on the basis of Unigine engine, called "Heaven". The benchmark uses the tessellation technology, advanced SSAO, new volumetric cumulonimbus clouds, interactive mode and much more.

According to images posted online by the PC Watch web site, the new Geforce Fermi card used in the demonstration PC required a 6-pin connector as well as an 8-pin and it is equipped with an SLI connector.

The card is expected to ship in the first quarter of 2010, possibly in late April or in March.
