Nvidia (NVDA) has a lead on Qualcomm (QCOM) and Texas Instruments (TXN) in fielding ARM processors ready for Windows RT (MSFT) hardware, thinks prominent chip industry analyst Patrick Moorhead. Moorhead argues Nvidia, whose Tegra processors will power the Windows RT version of Microsoft Surface, is ahead partly due to its experience (courtesy of its GPU business) working with Windows drivers. H-P just postponed plans to sell a Windows RT system featuring a Qualcomm chip.
