Nvidia chuffed by Zune HD design win

A Tegra in its tank

Security for virtualized datacentres

Microsoft's upcoming Zune HD media player contains an Nvidia ARM-based system-on-a-chip, Tegra, the chip maker has revealed.

Nvidia buffs will rejoice, but does anyone else care? What matters, surely, is what the Zune HD can deliver - HD video out is the main thing; playing back HD content on a sub-SD, 480 x 272 screen is no big deal - rather than how it manages to do so.

Zune HD delivers video to a TV through its HDMI port. It's one screen is a 3.3in OLED job - nice - and it has Wi-Fi for internet connectivity. It also has an "HD radio" tuner, but that's really only useful in the US, where the Zune HD is getting its initial and - for now - only release.

The player will come with a choice of 16GB and 32GB storage capacities.

Back to Tegra, and Nvidia said there were 50 other devices in the pipeline based upon its SoC. ®
