The competition was hard and the chip got picked from 400 other products, from every electronic product category. The Tegra chip was selected based on overall technical merit, innovation and marketability by a panel of government representatives, academia, research analysts, tech editors and other expers.
NVIDIA's award is the 3rd in a row of awards from Computex. NVIDIA won the same award last year for the GeForce GTX 480 GPU and the year before that, with the NVIDIA Ion GPU.
"The NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor is truly a super chip,” said the jury of the Best Choice Award. “It has ushered in a new wave of super phones and tablet devices with never-before-seen capabilities and experiences. We selected Tegra 2 from hundreds of entries because it’s an outstanding technological achievement that’s impacted the industry very positively."
"It’s an honor to receive this prestigious award from the Taipei Computer Association,” said Phil Carmack, Senior Vice President of the Mobile business at NVIDIA. “This helps validate the very sizable investment we’ve placed in Tegra and demonstrates that the mobile market is significant for NVIDIA. But this is only the start. With Project Kal-El, our quad-core processor, we’re planning to take mobile computing to even higher levels."
With the Tegra 2 chip, we have seen simple handheld devices transfrom into real computers with enough processing power to challenge even console gaming platforms. Already a lot of devices in the market, feature this incredible processor and we will see even more in the coming future.
