Cracking Open the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9: Unknown chip 34LM85AM 1110
I'm not exactly sure what this chip (markings 34LM85AM 1110) is. As there isn't a clearly marked NVIDIA chip on the motherboard, it could be the 1.0 GHz dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 T250S application processor. The Tegra 2 processor could also be mounted under the Samsung RAM chip.
