Google can say goodbye to NVIDIA and select Qualcomm

Nexus 7

Rumors and talk of developing tablet Nexus 7 second generation actively begin to gain momentum. News agency DigiTimes reports that the new generation of gadget from Asustek Computer and Google can be used instead of NVIDIA crystals from company Qualcomm.

The portal does not say that this will be for the chip, but citing an unnamed source close to the production chain, says that the reason why Google has decided to abandon the use of NVIDIA’s Nexus tablet in 7 of the new generation is the lack of a crystal integrated support LTE 4G .

Despite the fact that NVIDIA provided an updated processor Tegra 4i, which support the desired protocol is available, it is unlikely that it will be used in the new tablet. All because she NVIDIA will offer massive supply of the CPU towards the end of 2013, with the release of the Nexus 7 is expected in May, said the source.

He also reported that NVIDIA is can be a real blow. After this year, it could lose nearly 8 million processor shipments. In 2012, the company has delivered only one Google over 10 million Tegra 3 crystals. In addition, the chip used by companies such as Lenovo, Acer and many Chinese manufacturers.

Just some rough patch for NVIDIA obtained: first Sony chooses AMD (its main competitor) as a producer of “iron” for its console PlayStation 4, and now the tablet market begins to wave of a pen. However, information about the Nexus 7 new generation – it’s just a rumor. Have to wait for official comments and announcements.
