NVIDIA push Tegra 2 for Superphones plus Tegra Zone app

Tegra 2 isn't new, but NVIDIA is hoping that 2011 will be the year that the dual-core mobile processor comes into its own. Last we heard of "superphones" it was Google trying to brand their Nexus One as such; now NVIDIA is seizing on the title to describe devices packing multi-core CPUs, speedy GPUs and frugal power requirements, the first device being LG's Optimus 2X. To help users pair up superphones with apps worthy of Tegra 2, NVIDIA is also launching its own software tool.

Tegra 2 tablets will be “absolutely exquisite” promises NVIDIA CEO; Galaxy Tab just “a large phone”

NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang has acknowledged the company's tardiness in entering the tablet market, saying that when it comes to taking on the iPad, "if you're going to give that wonderful product a run for its money, you better build something absolutely exquisite." Speaking during NVIDIA's Q3 2010 earnings call, Huang spent plenty of time talking up next-gen Android phones and tablets that are in the pipeline, directly referring to the iPhone and iPad as the prime competition.

LG to Implement NVIDIA’s Tegra 2 Processor in Upcoming Smartphones

LG has kept up with their Windows Mobile offerings, and they've said that they have a commitment to Microsoft's Windows Phone 7 that's set to launch this year. With that being said, the hardware needs to make folks out there in the market get excited again. Because, unfortunately, LG and smartphones haven't necessarily been on people's tongues as of late. But, that has a very good chance of changing, if LG does indeed work with NVIDIA to get Tegra 2 into a smartphone later this year.

NVIDIA asks for patience in Tegra 2 tablet wait

NVIDIA asks for patience in Tegra 2 tablet wait

I remember when NVIDIA first started talking about its Ion platform. The graphics giant was big on talking the platform up, but had no products for us to see when the platform first debuted. The talk at the NVIDIA press conference about the Tegra 2 platform for tablets is very similar to that first Ion unveiling.

NVIDIA CEO: Tegra 2 will sweep tablets & smartphones; Moorestown “an elephant”

NVIDIA CEO: Tegra 2 will sweep tablets & smartphones; Moorestown “an elephant”

We've made no bones of our love of NVIDIA's second-gen Tegra chipset, and how excited we are about seeing it in upcoming tablets like the Notion Ink Adam, and unsurprisingly NVIDIA's CEO, Jen-Hsun Huang, is just as keen on the SoC.  He's been talking up the Tegra's potential (again) against Qualcomm's Snapdragon - "we use the right processors to do the right job" - as well as saving some particularly biting criticism for Intel's Z6xx Moorestown chips - "you could give an elephant a diet but it's still an elephant" - and even teasing a little about the possibility of a webOS tablet.

NVIDIA are looking to take on Qualcomm in the Android arena, with CEO Jen-Hsun Huang positioning the company's second-gen Tegra chipset as a more multimedia- and performance-focused alternative for high-end devices.  Huang complimented Qualcomm and TI's mobile chipsets, describing them as "wonderful application processors", but went on to say that "our differentiation and our contribution to the space is where multimedia, high resolution snappy graphics [are] really necessary."  He also highlighted Tegra's possibilities for larger-scale, iPad rivalling Android tablets, such as Notion Ink's Adam.

NVIDIA shows some Tegra Note 7 love with Android 5.1

NVIDIA shows some Tegra Note 7 love with Android 5.1

If you've invested in one of a few "NVIDIA Tegra Note 7" tablets, sold by other companies of course, and have been green with envy over all the attention showered on NVIDIA's SHIELD devices, then maybe its time for a change of color. Somewhat out of the blue, NVIDIA rather quietly started to roll out a massive OTA update to the stylus-enabled tablet, pulling the Tegra Note 7 from Android Jelly Bean and right into Android 5.1 Lollipop territory, extending the device's lifetime by just a bit.

2017 Audi R8 First Drive – All supercar, no compromises

2017 Audi R8 First Drive – All supercar, no compromises

There’s driving, and then there’s driving a car that thinks it’s a racer. Thing is, the Audi R8 has the credentials to back that up, born from an unmistakably noble family of champions and given the same name as a Le Mans winning sports car. For the 2017 R8, Audi turned to the same engineering team that developed the Nurburgring 24 Hours-winning R8 LMS race car, including half a shared parts bucket. It’s something I found hard to forget when Audi invited SlashGear to Portugal, to be among the first to try the new R8 on the track.

“Smaug” Chromebook with Tegra X1 might be coming soon

“Smaug” Chromebook with Tegra X1 might be coming soon

The NVIDIA Tegra X1 might be one of if not the most powerful, non-overheating mobile processor around but it is sadly found only in one solitary consumer device, the new Android TV NVIDIA SHIELD. That, however, might soon be changing with sightings of the Tegra X1 making its way to a class of consumer electronics that needs all that muscle the least: Chromebooks. If all the stars align, a certain board codenamed "Smaug" might be the foundations of a rare ARM-based Chromebook powered by the Tegra X1.

Dolphin brings GameCube to NVIDIA Shield, ditches 32-bit

Dolphin brings GameCube to NVIDIA Shield, ditches 32-bit

It's a good news, bad news kind of thing over at Android emulation land as the development team of Dolphin gave their monthly progress report. A name that is reused to death on multiple products, Dolphin is the name of a rather popular GameCube emulator that has only recently tried to see if an Android port is at all possible. The good news, they have had relative success with the latest generation of mobile processors, including the Tegra X1 on the NVIDIA Shield. The bad news, they're dropping support for anything from the 32-bit era.

2016 Audi TT/TTS and Q7 Virtual Cockpit First-Drive

2016 Audi TT/TTS and Q7 Virtual Cockpit First-Drive

I’m not going to lie, I feel pretty damn lucky to be one of a handful of American press with the privilege of experiencing Audi's Virtual Cockpit in the new TT/TTS and Q7. The opportunity to drive the TTS around Ascari racetrack was nothing short of exhilarating - especially with Virtual Cockpit getting me ready me for turns far in advance. Then, after experiencing Audi’s technology on the track, Audi invited me over to Verbier, Switzerland to test the all-new 2016 Q7, also equipped with Virtual Cockpit, in the way that most drivers will experience it.
