Nvidia: Tegra is the Future, Apple Leading Way

CNet today reports that earlier this week at the company’s analyst day, Nvidia Chief Executive Officer Jen-Hsun Huang told attendees that GPGPUs are the future.

Huang went on to finger Apple as a trendsetter because of the company’s support for OpenCL and the importance the company’s laptops place on the GPU.

The news comes shortly after reports that the company has bagged its first big Tegra contract in the form of Microsoft’s latest itteration of the Zune, the Zune HD. Huang also told audience members that in a few years, Tegra could represent half of its business, with the rest divided up between the professional (Tesla and Quadro products) and the consumer GeForce markets.

Nvidia’s Tegra chipset is aimed at both laptops and mobile devices. While this year’s Computex saw plenty of Tegra-based laptops (as well as laptops based on Nvidia’s Ion chipset), we’re still waiting for a cellphone packing Tegra. We'll admit it's quite a leap but from the way Huang was praising Apple, does anybody think there's even a small chance the next iteration of the iPhone could be based on the Tegra chipset? Let us know in the comments below!

    He's congradulating Apple for using the integrated 9400M nvidia chipset instead of the crappy intel stuff. The 9400M is around the performance of a ati X1600. When does he say apple is the way of the future?
