If you’ve been looking for something to play on your NVIDIA Shield or other Tegra 4 device, you’ll want to check out Mount & Blade: Warband. It’s a brand new action-RPG set in medieval times that really looks like it takes advantage of NVIDIA’s Tegra 4 processor.
The game is set in a fantasy world called Calradia that’s in the middle of a war, and consists of fully open sandbox-style gameplay. There are hundreds of locations to explore, tons of companions and weapons to use, and a finely tuned battle system that lets you fight on foot or on a mount. The game also has some of the most in-depth multiplayer ever on a mobile game, allowing up to 64 players to battle in multiple game modes. Read more
Ouya, the popular game console manufacturer is at it again with what appears to be a follow through on promised new Android powered gaming devices. Announcements of Ouya 2.0 are already in the works and is geared up for a release to the masses some time next year. In addition, the company is in favor of updating the look of their consoles with a whole new design leaving previous models behind. CEO Julie Urman made the following statement to further corroborate:
Our plan is to have Ouya 2.0 sometime next year, we haven’t finalized the date of that. We’re still determining what exactly we want that to be. For the hardware, we are looking at different chips. We are looking at what type of performance we want. Read more
There’s been a lot of hype about the Xiaomi MI3, especially because of its awesome specs, and we finally know that it’s coming out on October 15. Thing is, though, that this variant will only have Nvidia’s Tegra 4 processor, and is tailor made for China Mobile’s TD-SCDMA 3G network.
The other variants have Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800 processor. We currently have no word on when the other variants will be released, but rumors suggest late November or maybe even early 2014.
It’s a weird situation, and very well may delay Xiaomi’s plans to go international.
Remember that NVIDIA tablet we’ve been keeping an eye on? It recently passed through the FCC, and showed off some specs and designs while it was there. It also came with a semi-official name: the NVIDIA Tegra TAB. Caps lock. It’s also supposedly going to come with a slightly tweaked version of the Tegra 4, a 1280 x 800 7-inch screen, and what might be some version of stock Android, either 4.1, 4.2, or 4.3.
The pictures for the device show some high-end features for a tablet, like front-facing speakers, HDMI output, and the stylus slot. However, on those leaked photos, some things like the SD card slot and rear-camera are listed as being “Premium Model only.” You may see this tablet hit shelves in two flavors, one that offers a less-features but affordable Tegra 4 experience, and one that offers an all-out, high end experience.
No word on pricing or date yet, but with all of these recent leaks, I’m assuming an official announcement can’t be too far behind.
Already late in delivery, Madfinger Games has released some new screenshots for Dead Trigger 2, the sequel to their popular zombie-killing title Dead Trigger. They have also promised to announce the release date on September 19, 2013. In addition to the screenshots, to help keep people at bay while they wait for the title to be available on Android devices, Madfinger has also announced some more details about improvements in this newest iteration of the Dead Trigger series: Read more
ChinaDIY recently got their hands on NVIDIA’s upcoming Tegra Note, and took a series of photos with the device. We know that the tablet will be a white label product, meaning that NVIDIA partners around the world will be re-branding the Tegra Note as their own— expect to see it for a very attractive price.
We also have some confirmed specs: a 7″ 1280 x 768 HD display, a quad-core Tegra 4 CPU clocked at 1.8 GHz, 2 GB RAM, a 5 MP rear camera, a front camera of unknown resolution, micro-USB/HDMI support, and a stylus.
To see more images of the Tegra Note, head on over to the source link below.
We’ve heard that NVIDIA has been contemplating entering the tablet market with their powerful Tegra 4 processor, which isn’t surprising considering they’re already moving into the Android space with devices like the NVIDIA Shield. Thanks to some leaks from the NCC, the Taiwanese certifications site, we’ve got some confirmation on what NVIDIA has been cooking up.
The tablet above, named the P1640, is NVIDIA branded and has a 1.8 GHz Tegra 4 processor under the hood. The screen is reportedly a 7-inch, 1280 x 768 panel, and the device will run Android 4.2.2. It has several common ports, including the charging port, mini HDMI, and a SIM tray. Since this thing takes a SIM card, it may be a version of the tablet exclusive to a country like Taiwan. Seems like SIM-enabled tablets are pretty uncommon here.
Either way, we’ll be sure to keep you updated as soon as we hear anything else about the tablet.
It’s been nearly 8 months since NVIDIA’s Tegra 4 processor has been released, and just now we’re seeing the first mobile device using the technology. ZTE’s U988S will reportedly have the Tegra 4 packed inside, and is rumored to cost approximately 1,999 yuan, or $326 USD. A really nice price, considering how great the specs are. The ZTE U988S will include a 5-inch 1080p full HD touchscreen, a 13 MP rear shooter, 2 GB RAM, Dolby sound, and will ship with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.
It’s going to be China Mobile-branded, so it most likely won’t make its way over to North America— it would probably do ZTE some good to make it available over here as well, though.
It looks like Asus is working on an unknown Asus Eee Pad, nicknamed Taurus, with a very high-end display. Including on-screen buttons, the 10 inch screen which popped up on the GFX Benchmark site has a resolution of 2560 x 1600 which brings the pixel density count to a Retina display topping 299ppi. That’s better than Apple’s 264ppi count for the 9.7 inch glass on the fourth gen Apple iPad.
The device also packs in a quad-core 1.9GHz Tegra 4 CPU. There’s a good possibility we’ll see more of the device at the IFA show in Berlin next month.

A new NVIDIA Tegra 4 powered device showed up on the GFX Bench site from HP. Going by the codename “Bodhi” the device looks like it will be named the HP Slate 8 Pro when it hits the market. However, it is still not clear whether the number 8 in the name refers to a screen size of 8 inches or whether it is just an incremental model increase to replace the HP Slate 7.
The NVIDIA Tegra 4 chip will be running at 1.8GHz, much better than what HP did with the dual-core Cortex A9 found in the Slate 7. With NVIDIA’s newest chip, the device should be able to run in a nice, snappy manner and be able to keep up with some of the newer devices from Samsung or the new Nexus 7. It appears the device will come with a 1600×1200 resolution display, 2GB of RAM, a 5,000 mAh batter, a microSD card slot, and will run Android 4.2.2.
This hardware should help HP step up in the market some compared to the budget-shopper targeted Slate 7.
