NVIDIA Introduces World's Fastest Mobile Processor

NVIDIA Introduces World's Fastest Mobile Processor 
Tegra 4 Features 72 Custom GPU Cores, Quad-Core Cortex-A15 CPU for
Superb Performance and Efficiency; LTE Enabled With Optional Chipset 
LAS VEGAS, NV -- (Marketwire) -- 01/07/13 --  CES -- NVIDIA today
introduced NVIDIA(R) Tegra(R) 4, the world's fastest mobile
processor, with record-setting performance and battery life to
flawlessly power smartphones and tablets, gaming devices, auto
infotainment and navigation systems, and PCs.  
Tegra 4 offers exceptional graphics processing, with lightning-fast
web browsing, stunning visuals and new camera capabilities through
computational photography. 
Previously codenamed "Wayne," Tegra 4 features 72 custom NVIDIA
GeForce(TM) GPU cores -- or six times the GPU horsepower of Tegra 3
-- which deliver more realistic gaming experiences and higher
resolution displays. It includes the first quad-core application of
ARM's most advanced CPU core, the Cortex-A15, which delivers 2.6x
faster web browsing and breakthrough performance for apps. 
Tegra 4 also enables worldwide 4G LTE voice and data support through
an optional chipset, the fifth-generation NVIDIA Icera(R) i500
processor. More efficient and 40 percent the size of conventional
modems, i500 delivers four times the processing capability of its
"Tegra 4 provides enormous processing power and efficiency to power
smartphones and tablets, gaming devices, auto systems and PCs," said
Phil Carmack, senior vice president of the Tegra business at NVIDIA.
"Its new capabilities, particularly in the area of computational
photography, will help improve a whole range of existing products and
lead to the creation of exciting new ones." 
Computational Photography Capability
 Among the Tegra 4 processor's
breakthroughs is its Computational Photography Architecture, which
automatically delivers high dynamic range (HDR) photos and video by
fusing together the processing power of the GPU, CPU and the camera's
image-signal processor.  
Its HDR capability captures images, including those taken with a
flash, the way they are seen by the human eye -- with detail in both
bright and dark areas.  
Unprecedented Power Efficiency
 Designed for maximum energy
efficiency, Tegra 4 includes a second-generation battery saver core
for low power during standard use, and PRISM 2 Display technology to
reduce backlight power while delivering superior visuals.  
Tegra 4 consumes up to 45 percent less power than its predecessor,
Tegra 3, in common use cases. And it enables up to 14 hours of HD
video playback on phones.  
Tegra 4 Key Features 

--  GeForce GPU with 72 custom cores
--  Quad-core ARM Cortex-A15 CPU, plus a 2nd Generation Battery Saver Core
--  Computational Photography Architecture
--  LTE capability with optional Icera i500 chipset
--  4K ultra-high-def video support

 NVIDIA (NASDAQ: NVDA) awakened the world to computer
graphics when it invented the GPU in 1999. Today, its processors
power a broad range of products from smartphones to supercomputers.
NVIDIA's mobile processors are used in cell phones, tablets and auto
infotainment systems. PC gamers rely on GPUs to enjoy spectacularly
immersive worlds. Professionals use them to create 3D graphics and
visual effects in movies and to design everything from golf clubs to
jumbo jets. And researchers utilize GPUs to advance the frontiers of
science with high performance computing. The company has more than
5,000 patents issued, allowed or filed, including ones covering ideas
essential to modern computing. For more information, see
