A little earlier today, in a jam packed meeting room in the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas, we spent about an hour listening to NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang speak about the massive influx of mobile computing devices over the last few years and NVIDIA’s plans to better infiltrate the burgeoning market moving forward. During his address, Mr. Huang spoke almost exclusively about the company’s Tegra 2 processor and its capabilities and performance, although he also dropped a bombshell to close his talk about NVIDIA’s “Project Denver”—more on that one in a bit. While discussing the mobile computing space, NVIDIA’s CEO stated that Tegra 2 will usher in the era of the “Super Phone”; which is essentially a smart phone with increased performance and extensive multimedia capabilities that include full 1080P video playback, the complete Internet, and “console like” gaming. Throughout his talk, Jen-Hsun explained that Tegra 2, which features dual ARM processor cores and GeForce graphics on a single SoC, will offer end users the kind of performance necessary to experience the full internet with true hardware accelerated Adobe Flash, enough processing performance for snappy multi-tasking, and the gaming chops to play not only casual portable games but more graphics intensive apps, including MMORPGs and other on-line games.

Wish they'd had something to show of Denver, but at least it's good to know that they're not going to simply sit back on their GPU laurels and lose marketshare to Fusion and Sandy Bridge.
I think we consumers are going to see a lot of cool products in the near future.
