NVIDIA today joined leading suppliers of cellular silicon solutions – GCT Semiconductor and Renesas Mobile – to announce support and joint development of LTE modems and Tegra 3 mobile processors.

This is pretty exciting for a few reasons.

Number one is that OEM partners can now take their current NVIDIA-powered devices to the next level by creating next-gen LTE products with a fast time to market.

Number two: this will let more users in more markets access the award-winning performance capabilities, next-gen games, and lightning fast apps enabled by Tegra.

Finally, this helps push the envelope on the overall mobile experience. Through fast data access offered by LTE, users get even better multiplayer gaming options, lightning fast web browsing, supercharged app downloads… and the list goes on and on.

If you happen to be in Barcelona for Mobile World Congress 2012 next week, stop by our partners’  booths to see the latest updates.
