We don’t have the numbers yet to help us pin point just how hot the Nexus 7 is right now, though there are some indications to help us arrive to some conclusions. Nvidia has landed up a mega contract to supply no less than 3 million of its latest Tegra 3 quad core chips to be used on the Google tablet. This is good news for Nvidia, which has been struggling to keep itself out of the red.
Digitimes sources also point out Nvidia will see its profit jump by $10 million from the deal. With each of the Tegra 3 chips priced at $50 apiece, net revenue from just the Nexus 7 order would turn out to be $75 million. Of course there is more work in the pipeline for the chipmaker as more tablet developers adopt the quad core chip to power their tablet devices. We have seen Tegra 2 chip powering the majority of tablet devices launched in 2011 and something similar is already underway with the latest Tegra 4 quad core processors.
