Nvidia's Tegra 2
The first iteration of Nvidia's Tegra chipset powers small electronic devices like the ZuneHD and it does a wonderful job. But the whole world is going nuts over tablets, not personal media players. To that end, Nvidia is pushing Tegra 2. Launched at CES earlier this month, the chipset incorporates a Cortex-A9 CPU plus a low-power GPU. The whole affair consumes 500 mW under load and Nvidia says it will offer the full Tegra development kit, which includes reference board, a small display, and Chromium OS to all comers at "an affordable price." Nvidia is targeting tablets with this chipset.
