Nvidia’s Tegra 4 – aka the fastest mobile processor on the planet – lands at CES 2013
Want something a little faster than the iPad 4's A6X chip in your next tablet? Nvidia has just the thing for you
Nvidia has taken the wraps off its worst kept secret, the Tegra 4 mobile processor. So what can you expect from ‘the world’s fastest mobile processor,’ then? Well, for starters, it crams in 72 GPU cores, four A15 CPU cores and a 4G LTE modem.
All well and good – but what does that actually mean for 2013’s next-gen smartphone users? For one thing, Nvidia claims that the Tegra 4 is so powerful that you can have an always-on HDR camera which lets you take one-shot HDR snaps and HDR video on your smartphone.
And for web browsing, you can load up 27 high traffic web pages in 25 seconds – versus 50 seconds on a Nexus 10.
Then, of course, there are the games: Nvidia showed off a demo of Dead Trigger 2 to put the Tegra 4 through its paces – and we have to say, we can’t wait to play it on a 2013 Android tab.
Nvidia also claims that the Tegra 4 is faster than the A6X processor in the iPad 4 – which we can vouch for as being pretty snappy – so we’ll be waiting patiently for the first Tegra 4 devices to land.
