NVIDIA’s Tegra 4 Chip Outed, Looks To Bring Even More Quad-Core Goodness

 

We know that NVIDIA’s Tegra 3 chip is one hell of a processor, but what about it’s successor? We already know that NVIDIA plans on bringing in even more speed, but now it appears that we may likely see even more speed that ever before. According to Chinese website Chip Hell, the new Tegra chip will have a 28-nanometer part featuring “4-plus-1″ quad core architecture with a fifth battery saver core that will likely be based off ARM’s Cortex-A15 infrastructure. In addition, the imminent chip will be powered by a brand new 72-core GeForce GPU which should offer 20x the performance of the Tegra 2 and 6x that of the Tegra 3. Adding to this is the fact that the new chip will be capable of handling up to a 2,560 x 1600 resolution display at full 1080p and 4K support.

As exciting as the new chipset is going to be, we can only hope that we see more support for the upcoming chips that we’ve seen in years past. There are no further details for now, though rumor has it that we can possibly see a formal announcement of the new technology as early as CES 2013.

    As nice as it is to read these posts about these new chips, it really sucks that it doesn’t apply to us here in the US. I’d much rather had the quad core of the GSIII but what good would it have done me? Nada! We need to get these OEM’s to put the radios and CPU’s completely separate and interdependent of one another so that we can have access to them. Along with getting away from other bad design habits.
