With PC technology, new chipset technology would cycle every 6-12 months and if you were lucky, performance would double or triple the previous generation. Somehow, mobile chipsets evolve at a much faster pace than this. Specs for the "Wayne" chip (aka Tegra 4) from NVIDIA were just leaked today, and the new tech is supposedly six times faster in graphics prowess than the previous gen Tegra 3. In fact, if this leak is accurate, the specs on this new chip from NVIDIA will be phenomenal. Here's a breakdown:
  • Built on the 28nm process instead of the 40nm of the Tegra 3
  • Uses a similar 4-PLUS-1 architecture as the Tegra 3, with a fifth battery saver core.
  • The four primary cores will be ARM A15
  • 72 GPU cores (the Tegra 3 has 16 GPU cores)
  • Support for 2560 x 1600 displays 24b or 4K (not that you would have a phone with that resolution, but maybe a tablet or mini-HDMI output to a big screen. Alternatively, this chip could also be the next-gen chip for high-end smart UHDTVs.)
  • 1440p encoding and decoding (2560 x 1440)
  • Hardware-accelerated security features include Secure Boot, h/w DRM, and HDCP, and there’s support for USB 3.0 and a high-performance imaging chip.
  • Dual-channel DDR3L memory support
Supposedly, this chip could be ready as soon as Q1 of next year! If this is the future of mobile tech sign me up for a ride in a certain DeLorean that needs 1.21 GigaWatts of power to travel! In the absence of that, I guess we will have to wait until CES to perhaps get a glimpse of this alien technology. :)

The real question is, does it have integrated LTE?

That sounds very enticing...let's see if it makes it (or a dumbed down version) into phones...or maybe Google Toilets :blink:!

I'd rather wait until Tegra V, that will be the end all be all forever. It will have 324 Cores, and support a resolution of 2880p for Holodeck like resolution.

No, but really, this is just getting silly. Technology is just screaming these days. We can get 1080p phones, but can't get a muffler that won't rust. :p

LOL! "Muffler that won't rust..." sounds like someone experienced expensive car repairs. :)

This is a great point. It makes you wonder a bit about what we would have if other technologies had evolved as quickly as microprocessors have. Self-folding indestructible chairs? Self-guided, flying super-efficient cars? Or, how about biotech... a cure for the big diseases, or even the common cold? Regenerative limb replacement therapy? The sky is the limit! We need to get to work on some of these ideas!

I have a stainless steel muffler on my car going on 10 years now. No rust ftw! :happy3:

Ok can you all give me a run down on how powerful this graphics will be compared to gaming system generations.
T3 seem to be on par with Playstation 1 graphics when it came to the games it had.

What will T4 be at. compared to gaming devices?
