Samsung reportedly orders over a million Tegras

Written by


For the new Galaxy Tab
Samsung has reportedly ordered between 1 and 1.5 million Tegra 2 processors for use in its new 10.1-inch Galaxy Tab.

According to Digitimes, Samsung failed to achieve its sales goal for the 7-inch Galaxy Tab, but the new 10.1-inch version should ship in April.

Samsung's decision to use Nvidia chips in its new tablets is somewhat puzzling, as the company is developing its own dual-core ARM parts. We can only speculate that Samsung ran into development issues with its Orion processor, or that it won't be available in sufficient numbers to meet Galaxy Tab shipment schedules.

Samsung is committed to delivering the Galaxy S2 smartphone this month, using an in-house Exynos (formerly known as Orion) SoC. Obviously that means production is fine.

A more likely scenario for choosing Nvidia hardware for the 10.1" Galaxy Tab would be the fact that Tegra 2 is the launch hardware for Honeycomb.

Much like Snapdragon was for Froyo and Hummingbird for Gingerbread.

There's also the Tegra Zone, which is exclusive to the namesake SoC and might be a compelling sales argument for a larger tablet device.
