There has been some murmur about the Galaxy Tab 2 having Nvidia’s Tegra 2 chipset and we’re hearing it again, this time from an analyst. Ambrish Srivastava who is a semiconductors analyst with BMO Capital Markets recently spent a week visiting more than 30 tech companies and is of the opinion that Nvidia Tegra will have a busy 2011.
What’s more interesting is that Srivastava thinks that the next version of Samsung’s tablet will be “based on an Nvidia chip.”
This, if true will be a surprising move by Samsung because they’ve developed a dual-core successor of Hummingbird (which powers the current-gen Galaxy Tab). One apparent reason could be to segregate the smartphones and tablets with different choice of processors.
Let’s hope Samsung will reveal more information at the CES in few weeks.
