We heard a lot, previously, on how consoles are gradually becoming the thing of the past, we have a video for Snapdragon S4 to tease of what the future can expect through mobile gaming and also a game developer rants to back our claim.
Now, we already knew about Nvidia’s latest bid on mobile chips where they announced it back in February this year, but which platforms are they targeting for?
Jen-Hsun Huang, the CEO of Nvidia said in a statement during the earnings conference call, “We’ve made very, very large investments in the Google operating system. And we have a great working relationship with [Google]. As soon as the next-generation Kal-El processor goes into production we can run like the wind.”
And among incoming rumors that Texas Instruments is the favored chip supplier for Google’s Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 operating system — the version of Android that is upgraded from Honeycomb and Gingerbread — Huang said, “I look forward to Ice Cream Sandwich and expect to be very successful with it.”
But Nvidia is not putting all their future into just Android. Its powerful quad-core chip might be heading to Windows 8 tablets and laptops as well, “We’re very bullish on Windows 8 for the second half of next year,” he said.
Kal-El is due for release later this year.
