Six times the power of Tegra 3
Another smaller announcement came out of Nvidia's CES press conference last night alongside news of the Project Shield gaming handheld.
The Tegra 4 mobile processor was announced. It follows the Tegra 3, which gave gaming muscle to a ton of products in 2012. Nvidia says that this one sets records for both performance and battery life. 72 custom GeForce GPU cores give it six times the graphical horsepower of the Tegra 3. It's a quad-core ARM Cortex-A15 CPU, giving faster browsing and performance as well as new photography capabilities.
For some kind of idea of what this new chip can do, check out some example screenshots of some Tegra 4 optimized games, including Bloodsword, Dead Trigger 2, and Real Boxing.
