Strong graphics performance and flash support helps Tegra 2 sales

NVIDIA’s Tegra 2 SoC (System-on-Chip) platform hasn’t seen many days since its launch and has already gotten a lot of takers. Major tablet manufacturers have lined up their Tegra 2 devices for 2011 while others have already launched theirs just recently.

Acer, ASUS, Motorola and Samsung are some of the manufacturers developing products to release them in 2011, suggest reports, while the eLocity A7 and Advent Vega are tablets that are already equipped with the Tegra 2 SoC and are currently selling in the market. The Toshiba Folio 100 is also reported to be getting the chip in the near future and the Notion Ink Adam tablet too will come packed with the NVIDIA chip when it starts shipping.

The major features that are responsible for this heightening interest in the Tegra 2 platform are its strong graphics performance and support for Adobe Flash. Plus, the makers have also introduced discounts to further push sales of the platform.

Experts predict that if this trend continues, then these Tegra 2 tablets will account for half of all ARM-based tablet shipments in 2011. That sure can be comprehended looking at NVIDIA’s aggressive strategy at capturing the portable devices market. The player that might lose out most in this battle of processors in incidentally the biggest – Intel with its still overwhelming x86 portfolio.
