Opening New Windows
Looking ahead, Microsoft’s Aidan Marcuss, senior director of Windows marketing, came on stage to share his company’s excitement for Windows 8’s potential on Tegra-powered devices.
Windows 8, he noted, will be heavily multi-threaded, which Tegra 3 will take full advantage of for a fast, fluid experience. He confirmed that our companies are working together on a developer-seeding program to enable ISVs to quickly begin development on NVIDIA hardware once the next preview of Windows 8 is released in late February.
Jen-Hsun wrapped up by talking about how cars – which he called “the latest consumer device” – are increasingly featuring fabulous capabilities enabled by NVIDIA processors. Among the cars he cited as benefiting from the company’s partnerships are the Tesla S, Audi A7 and the Lamborghini Aventador.
