Following the news that announced the Zune HD from Microsoft not too long ago, the company is now releasing that the portable music player will feature a NVIDIA Tegra processor. This decision to use NVIDIA’s processor will allow Microsoft to give consumers that much more of a digital multimedia experience, since the chip uses little energy and is fast as well. Also featured with the Tegra is graphics acceleration, so it will be interesting to see what the company decides to do with that certain aspect of the system-on-a-chip. No matter what happens though, it seems that as of right now, the move to use the NVIDIA Tegra processor is a smart one for Microsoft concerning the multimedia functionality that it hopes to deliver with the new Zune.
