Netbooks, smartbooks, mobile devices, and tablets were a major focus of Computex earlier this month but the number of Tegra devices on display was surprisingly low, given how much weight NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang has thrown behind the company's mobile platform.The Microsoft Zune HD was supposed to be the first of a series of high-profile Tegra devices—rumors that the next-generation Nintendo 3DS would be NVIDIA-powered were dispelled recently when dark horse candidate Digital Media Professionals (DMP) announced that its heretofore unknown Pica200 GPU would provide the handheld's 3D hardware. There are still Tegra and Tegra 2 devices in the pipeline from various manufacturers (NVIDIA claims... Read more...
Asus has already confirmed that it will be entering the booming e-reader market later this year, but one device we haven't heard much about is the purported Eee Pad. In fact, we've only heard the Eee Pad referred to in rumor form, but all of that changes today.

With the attention that Ion has received, we get the feeling that Tegra 2 will be a different story.As of today, you can now consider Tegra 2 official. The cat was let out of the bag by Boxee, who has proclaimed that the Boxee Box will utilize the processor when it ships later in the year. It's a box built by D-Link, but it's the dual-core ARM Cortex A9 equipped Tegra 2 that'll generate the most buzz. We're excited about the possibilities that the Boxee Box... Read more...
If you wanted proof that Intel and ARM architecture licensees will soon be in direct competition with each other, there's plenty of ammo handy at this year's CES. A number of prominent companies have announced multimedia-centric products based around ARM CPUs, including NVIDIA, Marvell, ZiiLabs (a branch of Creative), and NXP Semiconductor. The devices themselves will target a range of customer needs and feature sets; this seems to indicate that an increasing number of manufacturers believe ARM-based products are capable of filling a variety of roles. When we spoke to ARM last fall, the company confirmed that it's long-term plan was to design a series of increasingly powerful Cortex-branded processors... Read more...
