    Although we have seen the above tech demo before, there is some new info regarding NVIDIA's development of the technology. As a refresher, the above tech demo is being rendered in real-time using the Tegra 5 (Logan) Core architecture married with their mobile Kepler based GPU chips. Mobile Kepler is a variation of the same GPU technology NVIDIA currently employs in their GTX 600 and 700 series graphics cards for the PC. Since the video above (titled "Digital Ira") was first presented back in July of this year, NVIDIA has made some refinements to the technology pushing it closer to mainstream production in future tablet devices.

    Not only has NVIDIA been able to shrink SOC down to smaller than a dime, they have also reduced the power requirements down to 2-3 Watts. This is still to much for a smartphone, but is in a good range for tablets. That's not all, NVIDIA has also been able to improve the graphics performance on top of these other refinements of the hardware. Here's a quote with some additional detail,

    It's almost frightening how quickly the technology continues to evolve. Versions of Tegra 5 are expected to hit retail mobile devices sometime next year.

    So how does the Tegra 5 compare with the Snapdragon 800 and/or how does the Snapdragon 800 compare with the PS3?
