Nvidia’s graphics division is having a rough time getting new products out the door but that doesn’t mean the rest of the company is stagnating. The company has announced its newest system on a chip dubbed Tegra 2.

The new Nvidia Tegra 250 will sport a total of 8 RISC-based processor cores running at up to 1GHz for your low-power computing needs while its updated 3D and video decoding components will allow for some impressive mobile gaming and 1080p HD video decoding while on the road.

The company expects the chip to be used in a wide variety of mobile entertainment devices as well as a new segment of “netbook-like” computers and tablets coming out this year.

Exciting stuff
