    [Rumor] NVIDIA Tegra 4 Rumored to Have Kepler Architecture and up to 64 GPU Cores


    Well, even though Apple's new A5X chip may hold the reigning crown for GPU performance in the smartphone world, it looks like NVIDIA wants to take that crown away and do so in a huge way. And, when we say huge, we mean reeedonkulous! If this rumor from a trusted source within the industry is to be believed, then NVIDIA's next chipset for smartphones and tablets, the Tegra 4, will share a similar Kepler architecture and 28nm manufacturing process to their current PC graphics line. Although we reported on this possibility previously, some new details regarding this mobile chipset have surfaced and they are astonishing! The new Tegra 4 will supposedly come packing from 32-64 GPU cores for its graphics horsepower engine!

    That's not all. Apparently, this new chipset will also feature some of NVIDIA's new and more advanced efficiency enhancements. That coupled with the 28nm chipset size (versus the Tegra 3 using 40nm chips), means that this new chip may be the most battery efficient chipset ever for a smart-device. Keep in mind the time-line of tech advancements. The Tegra 3 is based upon core technology that is several years old (even though the chipset isn't actually that old), whereas the new Kepler architecture is based upon much newer ideas and refinements. Supposedly, we will see products announced with the Tegra 4 sometime later this year, with actual ship dates for those products in the beginning of next year.

    Wow! And, we thought computers and console tech moved fast! Mobile tech is going absolutely bonkers!

    What's so funny about Android market or whatever you deem it is that before it is even off the ground the rumors of the replacement is in the news! For instance we have the Transformer Prime when is was in its infancy of say 2-3 weeks old and the replacement TF700 being announced, ICS barely in its infancy and on very few devices when Jelly Bean is already announced, and now we have Tegra 4 with what only 1 or maybe 2 Tegra devices on the market and those struggling at that.

    In my opinion only of course why not do something and do it right for a change before moving on! Again this is just my opinion but the 3 examples I've posted lack a lot to be desired!

    i agree here, i would like a fully functional product first and a couple months of fun with it or at least 1 year then a new product would be ok, there are barely a few devices with tegra 3 and they wanna launch tegra 4? and with ICS not being 100% stable........

    I've been thinking about it these days, and since I've got my first Transformer tablet made me wonder where technology development should go.

    NVIDIA is certainly headed towards the right way (as it has always been compared to its biggest rival, ATI).

    It's not so much that it is fast it's that it is a quad core graphics chip. But I do know that apps open faster on the new iPad than on the iPad 2 and it seems that web pages open a little faster as well. So even though it isn't a quad core processor it seems to run as quick as the Prime in my opinion.

    Google and nvidia have too much money, they just want to beat apple at all cost, specs mean nothing. I promise you that there are apps working better on ipad 1 then on prime. They will exclude tegra 2 from most of the new tegra 3 games, just to showcase and speed up development, same thing is gonna happen to vs tegra 4. If they dont consider this evolution into their calulations they are real scumbags
