The multimedia segment of the upcoming Microsoft Zune HD is powered by NVIDIA Tegra processor. Also, the device includes atleast 8 separate processors dedicated for individual tasks. Just to give you a hint, “among them are an HD video processor, an audio processor, a graphics processor and two ARM cores.” That’s not all, the processors can work independently or collectively based on the power consumption settings.
As Michael Rayfield, general manager of NVIDIA’s mobile business explains, “Tegra provides the multimedia muscle in Zune HD. Users will love the device’s new design, amazing multimedia features and HD video out capability. Zune HD is a must-have for anyone looking for the best portable digital media player on the market.”
With an absolute killer combo Zune HD is likely to be successful, but I guess only time will tell.
