    Tegra 3 Battery Saving Technology: DIDIM – Reduces Display Power Consumption



    In case you wanted a little more bang for your battery on an upcoming Nvidia Tegra 3 device, a new little nugget of information regarding Nvidia’s quad-core, Tegra 3 processor was revealed yesterday during the UBS Global Technology and Services Conference. Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun took the stage talk about a new technology Nvidia is calling DIDIM that boosts battery life in a device by reducing the main culprit of battery drain — the display.

    DIDIM essentially optimizes the backlight of a device’s screen while performing functions like watching a movie. Now, I know this sounds a bit like “auto-brightness” but it’s a little more complicated than that. DIDIM actually has the ability to adjust the backlight of an image by the pixel, per frame, that when added up, means a whole lot of battery savings for the end user.
    According to Nvidia, our eyes will react the same way as if nothing was going on, making the process indistinguishable from a device without DIDIM. What you will notice however, is the promised 40% longer battery life when watching a movie on a device powered by a Tegra 3 processor.

    First the companion core and now this? I feel like the next news we’ll hear is the Tegra 3 processor actually charging our devices while unplugged. Can’t wait to get my hands on a Tegra 3 device later this year. How ’bout you?

    IMO, Tegra 3 + single chip radio solution + a more mature 4G network = Smartphone Nirvana
    Galaxy Nexus - One phone to rule them all!!
