We have still yet to see a Tegra 3 powered tablet hit the market but it appears there is already chatter about price drops as NVIDIA’s CEO Jen-Hsun Huang has gone on record stating that he thinks they are going to be a lot cheaper in about six months time.
The first Tegra 3 tablet, the Asus Transformer Prime, will be coming out soon with a price tag of $500. Huang seems to think that such devices will cost around $300 in a “couple quarters.”
That would put quad-core tablets just $100 more expensive then tablets like the Amazon Kindle Fire and $50 more expensive then Barnes and Noble’s Nook Tablet. Yup, we’re thinking the same thing.
That’s a pretty good deal.
Of course, this is just a prediction, but it comes from someone that knows what he’s talking about.
