Similar conversations have begun on the Web more than once. And always in the end turned out to be just empty rumors. Perhaps this will be the case this time as well. Although, I would like to believe that this is still true, if only to see what happens.
And this time the magazine started talking business week, that is, the publication is quite solid. Citing "its sources," the magazine reports that NVIDIA in the sweat of his brow is working on an x86-compatible processor. The goal is to create a competitor atom, offspring Intel. Further fueling these rumors is the fact that last year the company acquired a processor manufacturer Transmeta.
The arrival of an x86-compatible processor could lead to unexpected developments in the tablet market. So a new generation of processors Tegra, which was originally designed for use in "tablets", may well turn out to be x86-compatible in the end.
To date, the processor Tegra, for all its merits, few managed to interest mobile device manufacturers (the most famous device based on it is a player Zune from Microsoft). The main reason is the high cost. The same atom - more affordable.
