Microsoft’s new ZuneHD, available currently for pre-order, has some NVidia in it’s DNA with the new “Tegra” mobile platform chip.
“Tegra provides the multimedia muscle in Zune HD,” said Michael Rayfield, general manager of NVIDIA’s mobile business. “Users will love the device’s new design, amazing multimedia features and HD video out capability. Zune HD is a must-have for anyone looking for the best portable digital media player on the market.”
The Tegra chip reminds me of the Cell architecture, combining an HD Video processor, an audio processor, a graphics processor, and two ARM cores all onto a single chip to maximize power efficiency.
