"Shares of Nvidia (NVDA) are up 13 cents, or 0.9%, this morning at $14.70 amidst buzz that its "Tegra" chip is gaining ground. I reported earlier that the Asian electronics trade pub DigiTimes did a report quoting anonymous sources saying the Tegra's second version, Tegra 2, may show up in numerous tablet computers next year."
This is some interesting news and quite surprising at that what with previous talk of Samsung working on their own dual core processor. According to rumors, Samsung has just placed a very large order for Nvidia's Tegra 2 CPU. So will we see a Tegra powered Galaxy Tab 2 or then next Galaxy S phone? The other tasty bit of news that might explain Samsung's actions is that Tegra 2 might be be the reference design for Gingerbread. 2011 is going to be a good year for Android.
