    Bye Tegra II; Google Selects TI OMAP4 As Preferred Ice Cream Sandwich Processor


    NVIDIA’s Tegra 2 processor has been the top choice since being released on the Motorola Xoom. Google made the processor the preferred Honeycomb chipset, and other smartphones followed the trend by upgrading to the dual core power it offered. Now times have changed, and Google is moving on to another major chipset company for the next generation of their software.

    Texas Instruments is being selected to offer their OMAP dual core processor as the "go to" chipset for devices that will run Google’s next generation Android 4.0/Ice Cream Sandwich.

    “What we do is pick our partners, a semiconductor partner, an operator, and an OEM and then combine them all together. This is the device that engineers have on their desk when they come in the morning.”
    TI makes incredible processors and so perhaps we will see some improvements in our next round of super-phones. This is sad news for NVIDIA though, because Google’s sponsorship brought them a lot of customers and attention. With that gone, they might not be as relevant in the mobile space anymore.

    What are your thoughts on this chipset switch? Can you hear that? ...NVIDIA’s stocks dropping.

    This is just for the next generation Nexus. Not for all.
    Also, the Tegra process is a combo of an ARM chip and an NVIDIA GPU. NVIDIA could take any chip, intel, ARM, TI, etc. and combine it with their GPU and have the next gen Tegra.

    What your saying is that switching from Samsung for the this new device will make Samsung's stock drop. It's one product and NVIDA has multiple device manufactures that they work with.
