NVIDIA Corporation (NVDA) Wants to Power Your Camera, Too

Naturally, Chimera is integrated into both the Tegra 4 and Tegra 4i processors, so device makers can incorporate the technology in their Tegra-powered devices as they see fit. Going even further, according to the announcement both Sony Corporation (ADR) (NYSE:SNE) and Micron Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ:MU)’s Aptina unit have already added support for Chimera in their sensors, “with others to be announced.”

A sticky solution
As an investor, I love that NVIDIA is increasingly building on its gaming roots to become a one-stop shop for all things graphics and image processing.

Don’t get me wrong. The Tegra 4i is huge news for NVIDIA and could be just what the doctor ordered to snap its shares out of their recent streak of prolonged underperformance. In the end, the Chimera architecture simply hasn’t gotten the attention it deserves and makes NVIDIA’s comprehensive solution that much harder to refuse.
