  • A Whole PC on One Chip: nVidia Tegra

    With my current fascination/obsession over small form-factor desktops and laptops, I went in search of new Atom processors to read up on future specifications. I found some interesting new (2009?) Intel single and dual-core UMPC CPUs and one with SoC capability.

    I found that nVidia has come up with their own, but it already has a prototype chip, unlike Intel's still-drawing-board model: Source.

    SoC or System-on-Chip is probably going to be a new fashion for UMPCs and PC-like cell phones in the coming years. It basically is a single die with a built-in CPU, GPU (with VRAM), RAM controller (with RAM), northbridge, southbridge, HD decoder, and a image processor all within.

    It'll be interesting to see how small the next "netbooks" will get in 2009 and 2010.

    nVidia shouldn't be moving on when they can't even make a friggin motherboard work properly (heck they can't even fix it a year after release)... I wouldn't touch this new thing when it comes out.

    Damnit Blizzard, fix ZvT already >.<

        I've heard about this, and am glad to see some forward movement on a prototype.

          Not sure if you're referring to nForce based boards or not, but usually the problems there tend to be driver related or hardware related (bad quality, etc. on the manufacturers end).

          nVidia doesn't make motherboards (or any other parts) for mass consumption. They only produce reference boards for other companies/manufacturers to use as a base to produce their products.

          I hope it hits the mainstream market in 2009 so we can start seeing its inclusion in UMPCs (like the Eee PC and AspireOne). Maybe then companies can pack in a optical drive. :)
