Nvidia Tegra-Based Devices Revealed at Computex 2009

nvidiategraleadNvidia has been teasing us with its Tegra platform for months and today the company and its partners had some substantial plans to announce and devices to show. First, Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang took the stage and introduced the Tegra processor. The processor, which aims to be extremely low-power, is made up of eight independent processors including ARM 11, ARM 7, GPU, 2D Engine, HD Video Encoder, HD Video Decoder, Audio, and Imaging. “We are enabling a revolution. We are focusing only on products where the visual experience is vital to its users,” Huang said. Tegra is meant for small form-factor handhelds and for notebooks. The Tegra platform will run Microsoft CE6 and Nvidia has created a user interface that lies over the basic operating system. The company has also teamed up with Adobe and Tegra will support full Flash and Flash accelerator. The processor and platform will also support full HD (1080p) playback. Nvidia and its partners also announced 12 new Tegra devices. Devices were shown from several ODMs, including Compal, Inventec, Mobinnova, Pegatron, Wistron, and ICD. See the gallery below for pictures of the notebooks, mobile devices, and press conference. Nvidia is also working with telcom carriers around the world and, according to Tegra General Manager Michael Rayfield, Tegra devices will hit the market before the holiday season.

    So Tegra MIDs will support HD Flash playback, but Atom-based PCs won’t?

    All it took was for Nvidia to “partner” with Adobe? Hey Intel, could you please “partner” with Adobe and enable HD Flash playback on your freaking netbook products?
