LG Optimus range to get Nvidia Tegra 2 chips
LG have announced that Nvidia Tegra 2 chips will be included across its range of forthcoming Optimus devices.
Nvidia have previously claimed the chip can stand shoulder to shoulder with the iPhone’s snappy A4 processor, and while it was initially optimised for use in Android devices, this new announcement will see the chips also used in LG’s Windows Phone 7 devices.
“LG is committed to making its Optimus Series smart devices the de facto standard in speed and graphics performance,” said Chang Ma, Vice President of Marketing Strategy Team, LG Mobile Communications Company. “We selected NVIDIA because it is the visual computing leader and has a long history of creating amazing consumer experiences.”
“The ultimate smartphones will be powered by Tegra, the world’s most advanced mobile processor,” added Phil Carmack, senior vice president of NVIDIA’s mobile business. “LG is one of the most popular consumer brands, and their Optimus Series of devices with Tegra is further validation of the processor’s ability to deliver an unrivalled, turbocharged media experience.”
The chip features the world’s first mobile dual-core CPU, offering as much as 5x better mobile gaming performance, double the web browsing speed and silky smooth 1080p playback.
