Opera Software and Nvidia say they will collaborate on a customized, accelerated Windows Mobile web browser for devices using the chipmaker’s ARM11-based SoCs. An “optimized, pre-integrated” Opera Mobile 9.5 edition will deliver higher performance and lower battery consumption on devices using Tegra processors, the companies say.
The Tegra processors run Windows CE and Windows Mobile natively on their ARM11 cores (above). They also include Nvidia’s ultra-low power GeForce GPU (graphics processing unit), with the following touted features and benefits:
- OpenGL for Embedded Systems (OpenGL ES) 2.0 compatibility
- Direct 3D Mobile
- Programmable pixel shader
- Programmable vertex and lighting
- Coverage Sampled Anti-aliasing (CSAA) support
- Advanced 2D graphics
