NVIDIA beats the Street estimates with its first quarter financials, Tegra chips usage on the rise again
NVIDIA just reported first quarter earnings, and beat the analysts' estimates with $925 million of revenue, and $60 million revenue. The CEO Jen-Hsun Huang said the company's Tegra line of mobile chips is on the rising demand train again, due to successful mobile launches (nudge, wink, HTC One X), and customers buying it for their upcoming Windows 8 ARM-based tablets.

The flamboyant CEO hinted that "Graphics is more important than ever. Look for exciting news next week at the GPU Technology Conference as we reveal new ways that the GPU will enhance mobile and cloud computing".

We'll certainly keep our eye peeled then - after all, we wonder if NVIDIA will pull this year what it did with dual- and quad-core handsets, and be the first to cram a Cortex-A15 Tegra processor in a smartphone.

I think next NVIDIA change will be an upgraded GPU to allow for higher resolutions than the curren 1280x800. That's my guess for the Tegra3+

I dont know but I felt very disappointed with the the graphic on Tegra 2 and Tegra 3. My TF101 cannot play 1080p video while the older Galaxy Tab can do. Tegra 3's graphic is so so. NVIDIA is successful in PC GPU market, not mobile GPU. Hope they will bring Kepler into Tegra SoC soon.

I am very much interested in the workings of the ARM chipsets for the Windows 8 platform, if you look at Android now you can see a big difference in performance between the certain chipsets. Will we see the same in the Windows 8 tablets, or will Microsoft try to ensure everything is as smooth as it always is (looking at Windows Phone 7.5).
