NVIDIA Day One CES Recap – Our News in a Nutshell « NVIDIA

NVIDIA Blog: Amid the turmoil at CES, it’s sometimes hard to sort out what’s new. In fact, it’s sometimes difficult just to navigate from one convention hall to another.

To help make things easier, we took a moment to recap all the NVIDIA announcements in this video with the Tegra team’s Matt Wuebbling.

Here’s a snapshot of our news thus far:

  • New $249 Asus tablet, equipped with a quad-core Tegra 3 mobile processor running Android’s Ice Cream Sandwich operating system.
  • Asus’s Transformer Prime tablet, with Tegra 3, is available immediately with Ice Cream Sandwich. Earlier versions can be updated over the air.
  • Tegra 3, by using the Splashtop app, can remotely connect to a GeForce GTX-based gaming PC and play the world’s most sophisticated titles like Skyrim.
  • The Tegra 3 processor sports three innovations:
    • A fifth ninja core, which draws very little power and is able to run background and ordinary tasks with little impact on battery life
    • PRISM, a power-saving backlight technology that can cut backlight power consumption by up to 40 percent by modulating the backlight per pixel, frame and scene.
    • DirectTouch, which offloads much of the touch panel’s processing to just one of the CPU cores, enabling 6x faster touch processing, lower costs and lower power consumption.
  • Tegra 3 is now powering some of the world’s best cars, including three being shown at CES by NVIDIA: the Tesla 3 sedan, the Audi A7 and the new Lamborghini Aventador.
