NVIDIA has announced their new Tegra 4 mobile processor at CES 2013 today. The Tegra 4 is the world’s first quad-core A15 CPU and has 72 GPU cores, offering 6 times the visual output of the Tegra 3, and an optional integrated Icera i500 chipset 4G LTE modem.
Tegra 4 has the same 4-plus-1 arrangement, meaning it has four cores plus a fifth, low powered, companion core for lighter tasks and is rumored to be based on the 28nm process. NVIDIA has quoted the new processor as being faster for web browsing than devices like the Nexus 10, iPad 4, and Droid DNA. The Tegra 4 is much faster at image processing and that was demonstrated by showing of HDR rendering. Tegra 4 has 4K ultra-high-def video support for incredibly high-resolution video playback.
NVIDIA says the Tegra 4 is the world’s fastest mobile processor currently available on the market and has 45 percent less power consumption than it’s predecessor. It will be shipping in devices later this year and it wouldn’t be surprising to see it pop up in devices announced at CES.
