It’s no news that Nvidia are working an all new CPU to replace the current Tegra 3, but up until today we didn’t have much of a clue about the chip other than it would be a quad core! Luckly someone on the inside leaked some juicy details.
Nvidia’a latest quad-core chip (codenamed Wayne) has just had most of it’s secrets leaked across China’s Weibo social network service, where an alleged slide has been posted.
The slide shows off some key features of the Nvidia Tegra 4 CPU such as the familiar quad-core +1 set up, an amazing 72-core graphics chip, and a claimed 20 times increase in power over the current generation Tegra 3.
It is also mentioned that the Tegra 4 is capable of power screen of 2560 x 1600 at 1080. This could give us a hint at what Xiaomi are planning with their next generation M3, which is rumoured to be running the latest Nvidia chip when it arrives later next year.
Although we probably won’t see Tegra 4 powered phones and tablet for some months yet, we can still get excited about the type of tech will launch when it is available, not to mention all those bargain priced Tegra 3 devices which are sure to come anytime now!
