Nvidia’s Huang Jen-Hsun certainly knows a thing or two about tablets and the semiconductor industry. His company’s Tegra-branded chips have risen in a short period of time as the go-to silicon for mobile devices, even though Tegra processors don’t power the one tablet to rule them all.
That said, if the Shadowgun game demo is any indication, current-generation Tegra 2 packs in some impressive oomph in the graphics department. The gam is also coming to an iPhone and iPad.
At Computex, Nvidia’s boss Huang Jen-Hsun boldly predicted that tablets would outperform PCs five years from now:
“You will not credit Intel for such an important feat, but Nvidia and its processors of the future, he argued. This won’t sit well with the Intel camp.”
