Samsung nabs Tegra 2 for Galaxy Tab 2: Sources

According to some experts,Nvidia’s dual-core Tegra 2 chipset is accummulating wins in the tablet space.

According to Citigroup's Glen Yeung , Samsung has "placed a sizeable order with Nvidia for Tegra 2 chips in the first half of 2011, geared for both tablets and smartphones.

BMO Capital Markets analyst Ambrish Srivastava anticipates the next Galaxy Tab will be one of the devices that use Nvidia’s Dual Core Tegra-2.

Engadget informs that it’s rumored, Samsung was supposed to be producing a dual-core chip of its own. The rumor which though Endgadget assumes contradicts Glen Yeung’s revelation; but still believes Samsung can go for Nividia’s rather than its own.

Glen Yeung also adds that Google has made Tegra the reference design forHoneycomb, aka Android 3.0, and so Tegra 2 may sound like a fast track to victory in the budding tablet space. --------
