Over years Nvidia has developed itself as a prominent mobile chipsets developer. The company's flagship products include Tegra 3, Tegra 4 and Tegra 5 which were codenamed Kal-El, Wayne, and Logan respectively. Nvidia's Tegra 4 is a highly innovative version of chipset to be released very soon. There is however, some information received about the various features of Tegra 4 chipset as leaked by the officials at ChipHell.
According to the report by ChipHell, the new version would feature a jaw dropping 72-core GPU which when compared to the previous version Tegra 3, proves to be six times more efficient. This would enable devices to perform with effective graphical options. In addition, the report reveals that the product would be built on the set instructions of ARM-Cortex A15.
Tegra 4 would be developed using the company's new 28nm manufacturing process. However, with Qualcomm developing its Snapdragon S4 chips on the same 28nm process, the market would see an active competition between the two companies.
Nvidia would develop the product with 4 plus 1 core design while its fifth core is meant for the usage of low energy demanding tasks. The product would also support other connections like USB 3.0, high performance-imaging chips, and a dual-channel DDR3L RAM.
The sources are neutral over the integrated LTE support potentiality of Tegra 4 which is an added advantage for Qualcomm. This would hence help Qualcomm retain the market edge with its availability for US centric models.
Nvidia would be revealing further details of the chipset at the CES event scheduled to be conducted next year.
