Tegra Is A Tigera..

Nvidia’s Tegra aims to take the same market segment that treats the company’s reach into a new market that currently has a demand of more than 1 billion processors per year.

So what the heck is it? It is a computer. Yeah…I know. A computer. The kicker? It is on a small nanochip. Revolt! Tegra can be formally called a “system-on-a-chip” (SoC) or “computer-on-a-chip” (CoC). Tegra has:

  • ARM11 CPU core
  • GoForce (renamed into GeForce ULV) GPU
  • an image processor (digital camera support)
  • a HD video processor (PureVideo for handhelds)
  • memory (NAND Flash, Mobile DDR)
  • a northbridge (memory controller, display output, HDMI+HDCP, security engine)
  • a southbridge (USB OTG, UART, external memory card SPI SDIO, etc).
I'm all about one thing: reviews that are easy to understand and make sense of.

    These will never take over system buses. Ever!

    I’m not TOO sure on that one ;). But you’re most likely right. Let’s see where this goes

  5. We just bought what you recommended before.
