NVIDIA teams up with LG to demo the LG Optimus 2X, first in a
With the Tegra 2 expected to bring dual core power to smartphones, NVIDIA's press conference was one of the hot spots at CES. The next chapter of smartphones promises to stand and deliver – all of the upcoming Tegra 2 phones will bring graphics acceleration and a 1080p playback processor. NVIDIA teamed up with LG to give a demonstration of the technology on the LG Optimus 2X and it looks exciting.

NVIDIA did not announce anything groundbreaking, but just confirmed the sweetness of having dual core on your phone. First, let's mention that this includes the ARM Cortex-A9 chip, which grabs the title as world's first dual-core CPU for cell phones. Second of all, the NVIDIA GeForce GPU will accelerate graphics without sacrificing battery life – the silicon is ultra-low powered. The final highlight falls on 1080p HD movies.

NVIDIA demoed Skype HD video calling on an Android tablet to give us a hint at what the future holds. Another curious addition to the powerful chip was the Tegra Zone app, which is the hub for all Tegra-optimised games along with game reviews and trailers. Check out the officially announced LG Optimus 2X and Motorola Atrix, one of the first of many waving hello to dual core and Tegra 2.
