Nvidia Corp. has already revealed that both of its next-generation Tegra system-on-chip for mobile devices would be taped out this year. Now, the company says that the first details about Tegra-series products code-named Wayne and Grey are set to be revealed at the consumer electronics trade-show (CES)  in early 2013, whereas actual products are on schedule by Mobile World Congress  in February.

“We think we will announce our [next-generation Tegra] products at CES and our customers will announced their products at MWC,” said Chris Evenden, director of investor relations of Nvidia at Raymond James IT supply chain conference.

Nvidia Tegra "Grey" system-on-chip features built-in 3G and 4G/LTE communication technologies, the developer pins a lot of hopes on it as it should help it to penetrate the market of mass smartphones (that can be sold at a discount price), which will boost its market share considerably. Tegra "Wayne" is the next-generation multi-core application processor, which is presumably based on ARM Cortex-A15 general-purpose cores as well as a new GeForce-class graphics engine.

The company is cautious about the actual timeframe when those designs are set to reach the market as it takes an extended amount of time for smartphone makers to build in new SoCs into their designs.

“I would set design win expectation carefully; I tried this last year as well,” said Mr. Evenden.

Considering the fact that it takes a long time for smartphone developers to integrate new SoCs into their products, end-users should probably expect one or two handsets with Tegra “Grey” and/or smartphones/tablets with Tegra “Grey” in late calendar Q1 or even in Q2 2013. More smartphones with the new Tegra chips inside should probably be expected in the second half of the year.

Nvidia expects many makers of smartphones and tablets to adopt Tegra “Grey” system-on-chip and “Wayne” application processor. Both products are expected to be made using 28nm process technology.

This will make them all the more attractive to Intel, Intel hasn't got anything in the way of these chips and it would take them 3 to 4 generations of chips to get to within cooee of the ARM makers.
