Nvidia eyes mobile market

Nvidia revealed that some of the world's biggest gadget manufacturer's are designing mobile devices using its Tegra 3D graphic processors, states Venture Beat.

The first major adopters of these chips for mobile Internet devices are expected to be cellphone carriers, not the computer makers who are Nvidia's traditional customers.

At the Computex show in Taiwan, makers of computers known as original device manufacturers, will showcase eight different netbooks and other mobile devices that use the Nvidia chips, explained Michael Rayfield, GM of the mobile business unit at Nvidia in California.
