Post Next Generation Tegra :The Power of Eight

Eight is enough? In the case of NVIDA's newest processor for the mobile web, eight is plenty and quite powerful as a matter of fact. We recently debuted the Next Generation Tegra processor and reviewers have been pretty impressed. Anand Shimp at AnandTech said, 'Honestly, Tegra 250 is one of the most exciting things I've seen at CES' while Robert Hallock at Icrontic named it one of the 5 best products at CES. 'Imagine a device the size of a short paperback that can make short work of 10Mbit 1080p video streams. That is the power of NVIDIA's Tegra 250.'

So, what's the power behind this smaller-than-your-thumbnail processor that still gives consumers access to the complete web, full 1080p HD video and long-lasting battery life? Well it's the power of eight, as in eight purpose optimized processors.

Tegra doesn't rely on one type of processor to do everything. It takes a special team approach to make sure browsing, video, audio, gaming all have optimized processors for full function, using the smallest amount of power possible. Tegra 250 includes the world's first dual core CPU for mobile applications and the first full HD 1080p capable video encode and video decode processors. These processors are used together or independently to optimize power usage at all times, and are responsible for Tegra's performance being 10x faster than the processors used in smartphones today, and up to 4x the performance of the previous generation Tegra processor.

To find out more about the power of eight, check out this white paper. We give a deep dive into the new Tegra processor architecture.
