A week back we heard from the CEO Of Nvidia, Jen-Hsun Huang that he had been working closely on a tablet, and we knew it was coming.
Today surfaces the prototype Nvidia Tegra Tablet powered by Windows CE and a Resistive Touch. What comes good is the HD capability of this device. The 720p and 1080p playback on the device is smooth and power efficient. Since the device is just a prototype, its pointless to comment on the battery life.
As per Nvidia, the project is known as ICD Ultra and promises to play 10 hours of 1080p HD content, and 3 times the battery when listen to music (screen off); practically, give FullDay juice to the battery at any kind of usage. On the gaming and graphics side, you can’t expect much from Tegra based MID coz they are designed to give extended battery life. For standard games like COD MW2, it should give out 40FPS over medium-low graphics settings.
The NVIDIA Tegra processor is a heterogeneous multiprocessor architecture. Each processor unit is architected for a specific class of tasks—a CPU for running html and Java, an HD video processor that makes streaming HD video playback possible on a netbook for the first time*, and an ultra-low power NVIDIA GPU for a compelling user interface and for Flash acceleration. These processors are used together or independently to deliver a wonderful experience while utilizing minimal power. With its ultra-low-power processor design, NVIDIA Tegra processors achieve up to 5 times the power efficiency of existing products in battery-operated computer systems running compelling visual computing applications.
