This week, NVIDIA was at IFA 2011, Europe’s largest consumer electronics show. Nearly 1,500 exhibitors and 240,000 attendees flocked to the Messe Berlin convention center in Berlin, Germany where we showcased the crème de la crème of NVIDIA’s consumer tech, including the latest Tegra devices and content, notebooks and desktop systems.

The NVIDIA booth featured the hottest new Tegra devices – the Lenovo Ideapad K1 Pad, ASUS Eee Pad Slider and Samsung Galaxy R. We also showed off popular on-market devices like the LG Optimus 2X and LG Optimus Pad, MOTOROLA Xoom, Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and the Packard Bell Liberty Tab – just a sampling of the 50+ Android phones and tablets currently powered by Tegra.

While mobile fans at our booth flexed their thumbs in our Fruit Ninja HD competition, PC gaming enthusiasts flocked to test out our gaming notebooks and PCs, including the ASUS G74 and the Toshiba Qosmio X770. These machines pack NVIDIA 3D Vision and power-saving NVIDIA Optimus technology, so you can enjoy a full HD 3D gaming experience without worrying about battery life.

But, NVIDIA technology wasn’t confined to our IFA booth. Major brands and manufacturers across the show were keen to flaunt their NVIDIA-powered products. Gamers were treated particularly well at the Acer booth, where over 50 GeForce-powered Predator PCs were available for playing games including Starcraft II and League of Legends.
