Nvidia has recently announced at MWC in Barcellona that it is working with Microsoft on a program to promote both the upcoming OS and the new mobile processor.
The companies are looking into distributing Windows 8 test PCs powered by the Tegra 3 quad-core mobile processor to software developers and device manufacturers.
Such a program will allow these parties to develop a rich ecosystem of apps and devices for Windows 8 on ARM-based processors.
“NVIDIA has a long record of supporting software developers working on the cutting edge of innovation,” said Tony Tamasi, senior vice president of content and technology at NVIDIA. “We’re furthering this tradition by helping to realize the extraordinary potential of Windows on ARM processors, like Tegra 3.”
“Microsoft is excited to partner with NVIDIA to bring developers leading edge Windows on ARM test PCs to support the creation of compelling Metro style app and device experiences for Windows 8,” said Aidan Marcuss, Senior Director of Business Planning, Microsoft.
