Submission + - Nvidia Showcases Tablets & Tegra 2 Platform

adeelarshad82 writes: At a press conference at CES 2010, Nvidia introduced five new tablets and their latest Tegra 2 platform, running on a slew of them. According to hands on with the tablets, at least two of the tablets ran Android and all had a capacitive touch display. Nvidia wants these tablets to have the performance of a PC, but have the energy efficiency of a cell phone. This is where the next generation of Nvidia's Tegra 2 comes in. It features a dual-core Cortex A9 processor, part of its eight independent processors, which also include a Geforce GPU. Nvidia claims Tegra 2 will have 10 times the performance of a smartphone, operating at only 500 milliwatts. So battery life will be far better than products based on Qualcomm's Snapdragon or Intel's Atom chips.
