LG Nestles Up to Nvidia for Dual-Core Chips
LG has indicated that it will use chips made by Nvidia in its future smartphones, including the Optimus line of devices due later this year. LG has picked a dual-core version of the Tegra chip from Nvidia, which is known mostly for making graphics chips. Nvidia scored its first phone processor win with the Microsoft Kin devices, though Microsoft and Verizon Wireless pulled the plug in Kin mere weeks after launch. LG hasn't confirmed the clock speed of the dual-core Tegra chip it will use.
