It appears that we are are going to wait a little longer before we finally see all the things that NVIDIA has cooking for us in 2013. According to NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang, the upcoming Tegra 4 chip will not ship until mid-July, which means most Tegra 4 devices won’t ship until at least August or September:
“We ship Tegra 4 starting in Q2 [of fiscal 2014]. We are ramping production now and we will have full production release. [The second quarter] is when we ship to customers. Q2 is also when we ship the Tegra 4 based Shield device…Although it is in the latter part of Q2, it is going to be in Q2.”
Unfortunately, that means that revolutionary mobile gaming device Project SHIELD will be slightly delayed too. Here’s hoping the extended wait will be worth it for all you fanatics out there.
