Images of NVIDIA's Tegra Tab leak out, it's a quad-core Tegra 4 tablet
Most of you probably still think of NVIDIA in terms of graphics, but the California-based company is hard at work to change that notion, or so it would appear. What the graphics chip maker started out with the NVIDIA Shield is just the beginning, according to rumors, for several signs point towards at least two tablets already in the making.
While the first, more premium tablet continues to elude us, its less-fancy sibling has already been flushed out into the wild, providing some high-resolution snaps along the way for us to see. This tablet is very likely the so called NVIDIA Tegra Note Premium that graced GFXBench just recently – a 1.8GHz quad-core Tegra 4-equipped slate running on a resolution of 1280x736 and touting Android 4.2.2.
Visually carving out what the Tegra Tab is and looks like sure is welcome, but the snaps out of China further provide some valuable information. Namely, while we're only shown the back of the device, it does appear to be a 7-inch tablet, as we suspected. According to the source, the camera on the back is a 5MP shooter, and we can also make out a Micro HDMI port and a SIM tray along with a 3.5mm audio jack. Stylus support has been hinted, but we have no confirmation so far.
While NVIDIA's foray into the tablet market probably won't turn too many heads, it's interesting to see whether the chip maker will manage to carve out a piece for itself.

Correct me if i'm wrong, but is the real graphic performance of Tegra 4 with 720p resolution double Tegra 4/S800 with 1080 resolution?

i don't know if it's double but going down the res sure the performance going to increase because android games or benchmark use for android usually using the same setting regardless resolution. same as pc gaming. keep the setting as a constant the performance will decrease with the increase of resolution because there are more pixel to push

Nexus 7 2013 is greater than this thing and most likely cheaper as well.
