I think that Nvidia just needs to stick with the GPUs, and GP GPU architecture. Don't worry about getting in the CPU space. I think that Fermi needs to get optimized, and they will have to start getting the low budget GeForce out, and get the Quadro line out. It has taken too long.
When I first saw the Terga chip, I was amazed at the console-like graphics it could provide. But the fact is that Terga ain't in many cellphones as NVIDIA has anticiapted. And that's sad because it's a really good graphics chip.
But still, their main priority is their GeForce line. Even if Terga hasn't been on millions of cell phones yet.
"The future starts with you; now start posting more!"
Taylor: Tegra, not Terga. M-Man, you might want to read the story I linked above in the last paragraph. It explains why Tegra is so important to NV's long-term strategy--while it's a year old, it's still completely applicable.
It's just inevitable that Nvidea is getting involved with the cellular gpu market. I don't mean this as a negative thing I love my zune and wait for more devices to run Tegra. As we move on to the future people use full sized computer desktops or even laptops less and less. It is necessary for Nvidea to be in this market and move on with the other chip makers as the market demands their products in different direction.
Even the ion2 hasn't seen much use. I put off buying a netbook last December/January because of the Ion 2 and Tegra 2 showcase on CES, half the year is almost done and I still can't find a good Ion 2 powered netbook. These are great technologies and companies aren't adopting them. I remember Intel saying that "people don't need better graphics in netbooks" but the fact is, people WANT them.
