NVIDIA has been working on their Tegra 5 mobile platform for a while now and according to them Tegra 5 “Logan” is actually more powerful than then PlayStation 3 and the 8800 GTX, on top of that it will only consume 2W!
Following this will be the next in line, the NVIDIA’s Tegra 6 which will be the Powerhouse behind the 64bit Androids of 2014. This is going to be the mobile variant of the Maxwell Architecture and will be supported by complete 64 Bit Support.
Concept engineering is a big part of what NVIDIA does. The original Tegra processor was an attempt to see if it was possible for a GPU manufacturer to make a processor for more standard applications. That attempt turned into a mobile CPU empire. NVIDIA is now taking that same drive and pointing it to an unlikely companion: Automotive Engineering. The ever growing resume of NVIDIA is an attractive thing to companies like Audi and BMW and because of the engineering demos they’ve developed we may soon see some of the coolest technology integration’s in the automotive industry that we’ve seen in years.
This morning at IFA Berlin NVIDIA showed off for the first time the Unreal Engine 3 flagship demo Epic Citadel running on a Windows RT tablet powered by Tegra. The tablet in question is the ASUS Vivo Tab RT. This tablet features an NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor, 12-core GPU and 2GB of RAM. Check out the video after the jump to see this incredible demo running on a tablet!
Nvidia showed off new Ion netbook and nettop designs this year, plus an entirely new GeForce architecture—Fermi— designed for triple headed machines and 3D displays. Nvidia’s Tegra line of embedded chipsets is also growing rapidly through OEM adoption, most notably in the Boxee Box by D-Link.
