Google's (GOOG) next-gen Nexus 7 tablet (expected in Q2) will feature Qualcomm's (QCOM) APQ8064 app processor rather than an Nvidia (NVDA) part, according to Pac Crest's checks. The current Nexus 7 uses Nvidia's Tegra 3 chip, and Pac Crest sees Google's move - reportedly motivated by pricing and a wish to standardize on a single baseband and app processor supplier - hurting Tegra sales by $200M-$250M through Q1 '14. The APQ8064 has turned in huge benchmark numbers, though Nvidia's new Tegra 4 is likely competitive. (Nexus 7 rumors)
