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.


  1. Tegra? What the heck…SoC…what’s happening to our hardware world!!1

  2. Sounds interesting. Definitely would like to hear more.

    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.
