Nvidia has been talking a lot about Tegra 3, CES was packed full of Smartphone manufacturers talking about quad core smartphones that were on the way for 2012. Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsung Huang said today that we can expect to see them before the end of March.
“This quarter we are expecting to ship Tegra 3 based superphones. At Mobile World Congress is when we expect to announce these devices, and we expect to announce and ship them this quarter,” he said during the company’s earnings call this week.
Tegra 3 was officially launched back on November the 9th but currently only a small number of tablets actually use it. Nvidia this week recorded the earnings for the fourth quarter and stated that there was a quicker than anticipated decline in Tegra 2 sales.
“Despite this drop in Tegra 2 sales, Nvidia noted that Tegra shipped in 14 phones and 34 tablets. Additionally, VP Rob Csongor said Tegra 3 is well-positioned and should deliver “renewed growth.” Total Tegra sales in 2011 were about $360 million. For 2012, the company expects “at least” $540 million, the majority of which will be generated via Tegra 3″
