    Nvidia Demonstrate Windows 8 On Tegra 3 Powered Tablet

    At CES 2012 Nvidia demonstrated Windows 8 running on a tablet powered by Nvidia’s new Tegra 3 processor, which is built on the ARM architecture rather than the traditional x86 that Intel and AMD use and dominate the market with.

    In the past Windows didn’t support ARM processors which meant that Intel and AMD were the only real players in the processor market. However ARM processors have become more popular in mobile devices since they are more energy efficient and offer high performance as well as good battery life. Nvidia’s latest processor the Tegra 3 is a perfect example of this.

    Microsoft said that they were going to add support for ARM processors in Windows 8, but apart from a brief glimpse at their Build conference last year, yesterday was the first time we finally got to see Windows 8 working and running on a Tegra 3 powered tablet.

    I feel that if Windows 8 is to be a success, it really needs to enter with a big range of high spec tablets.
    High spec ?
