NVIDIA touts their new Tegra chip as the ideal chip to power Tablet computers in 2010. NVIDIA showed the Innovative Converged Devices (ICD) Tegra tablet at the Verizon Wireless LTE Innovation Center yesterday at the CES 2010. We already reported back in December about the ICD Tablets.

NVIDIA Tegra mobile processors enable an full HD web experience, such as streaming YouTube HD, for hours on a single charge.

Key to Tegra’s capabilities are eight independent processors, including the world’s 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.

Tegra is the power behind the new generation of tablets, offering:

  • 3D touchscreen user interfaces
  • Amazing battery life— always-on and always-connected
  • 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
  • Immersive gaming, vivid photos and video, and crystal-clear audio
Next Generation Tegra is a leap in mobile computing performance with:

  • The world’s 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
  • Advanced TSMC 40nm process with active power management
In 2008 NVIDIA touted Tegra as the enabler for MID (Mobile Internet Devices). Now Tablet or Slate is the hot keyword in mobile computing. Has anything really changed besides performance?
