Graphics card provider Nvidia has just shown off two Tegra processors designed for tiny laptops or netbooks. Tegra processors are designed so that devices fitted with them would be able to browse the web, show high-definition video, and handle graphically-heavy games.
This move pushes Nvidia into direct competition with Intel, who are also releasing similar chips. The Tegra chips will have an Arm 11 chip, graphics unit, media handler, system memory and peripheral controllers.
More details are to be announced at the Computex show in Taiwan running from tomorrow until the 7th. Also expect Taiwanese computer manufactures to debut prototype machines running on the Tegra chips.
