NVIDIA: Smartbooks to make netbooks redundant

Posted on Friday, August 28 2009 @ 02:26:32 CEST by


NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang told the audience at Hot Chips that he believes netbooks will be replaced by smartbooks:
“I wonder if the netbook is not enough satisfaction for a PC, not enough battery life to be mobile? I kind of feel like the netbook is a ‘tweener’,” Chief Executive Jen-Hsun Huang said on Monday on the sidelines of a conference on the Stanford University campus, later adding that he thought netbooks would be replaced by “smartbooks.”

That would be great for Nvidia Corp, since it is making ARM-based chips for smartbooks while its rival Intel Corp’s Atom powers most netbooks. The bet on lower-power ARM chips is that consumers will privilege battery life over computing power.
