As you have almost certainly already heard, one of the big things coming in Windows 8 will be it’s support of ARM processors. The main feature of the new operating system, though, is the radical new Metro interface. The Metro Start screen displays a series of “live tiles”. These are the apps, some of which come with Windows 8, and some which will be installed by the user from the new Windows Store, which are constantly updating with new information. You could display such things as current weather, Twitter, news, and a lot more on your personalized start screen.
nVidia was at the Consumer Electronics Show last month to show off their Tegra 3 quad-core processor running Windows 8 tablets. The new chipset allows these tablets to be extremely thin, have longer battery life, and high-resolution graphics. In the video below you can get a look at a little bit of what they are capable of, such as HD video playback, and full Windows multi-tasking.
The exact specifications and pricing aren’t yet available, but you can learn more by visiting the nVidia site.
