The long-lasting battle between NVIDIA and ATI Technologies on desktop graphics market is not over and will never be, but there is another one underway. Weeks after ATI announced its huge design-win with Motorola and days after the company released its new IMAGEON 2300 multimedia co-processor for handhelds, NVIDIA said its GoForce 2100 and 2150 chips are incorporated into Mitsubishi and MiTAC mobile phones.
NVIDIA' GoForce 2150 media processor saw the light of the day in late September 2003. Incorporating technologies from MediaQ, a well-known developer of chips for handheld applications acquired by NVIDIA in 2004, the GoForce 2150 chip is among the industry's most-powerful co-processors for mobile phones. The first multimedia co-processor from Santa Clara, California-based NVIDIA has 1.3MP camera support, 64-bit 2D graphics accelerator, embedded memory for LCD frame buffer and flexible CPU interface. The versatile LCD controller also allows for fast-switching dual screen interfaces, typically implemented as a large active-matrix colour screen inside the handset and a smaller LCD located outside. NVIDIA GoForce 2150 supports over 70 different display interfaces (including CSTN, TFT, OLED and LTPS technology) at up to HVGA (320x480) resolution.
