NVIDIA Tegra 3 near-done, new Tegras every year

NVIDIA logoNVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang, speaking at the company's GPU Technology Conference, has announced that the Tegra 3 platform is nearly finished. The executive also suggests NVIDIA engineers are already working on Tegra 4, while a new Tegra SoC is expected to be unveiled "every single year."

The Tegra platform has shown limited success in the electronics marketplace, with early Tegra SoCs chosen to power only a few devices including the Samsung M1 and Zune HD media players. Although the chips were touted as perfect for smartphones, the first of such devices to use Tegra CPUs, the Kin One and Kin Two, were both discontinued after a few weeks of dismal sales.

The Tegra 2 has also faced difficulties, as Boxee recently announced that it had dropped NVIDIA's platform in favor of Intel's Atom processors for the Boxee Box. The technology may be used in several upcoming devices, however, as Toshiba has confirmed plans to launch a Tegra 2-based Android tablet. Separate rumors suggest HTC is working on an Android tablet, which is expected to use a dual-core Tegra 2 CPU to run Android 3.0. LG's Optimus smartphones, due by the end of the year, will also take advantage of Tegra 2 components.

NVIDIA has yet to announce specifications or launch details for its Tegra 3 chips.
