NVIDIA dev program supports x86, ARM devices

NVIDIA is represented at the currently ongoing Microsoft Build conference, and it has announced the launch of a developer program for tablets running on Windows 8 and with NVIDIA's Kal-El quad-core, next-generation Tegra processor. The company's GeForce, Quadro and Tesla cards will also be covered under the program. Developers will have the tools to create for x86- and ARM-based tablets and PCs as well.

Interested developers not at the conference can sign up for NVIDIA newsletters regarding the opportunities in creating software for the platforms or visit their dedicated Windows 8 developer web page.

NVIDIA is expected to offer its Parallel Nsight tool, Visual Studio, and many samples and SDKs for developers.

Kal-El will be the first quad-core chip for mobile devices and is said to support 1440p (2560x1440) video playback. It can drive a Retina Display-like 300DPI image on a 10-inch tablet.
