I want tegra 5 in next xperia smartphone
6. dratomic (Posts: 476; Member since: 09 Oct 2013)
can you name 10 deviced that launched this year and made use of the 4th version?!
tegra was and is and will be a flop. tegra 2& 3 were behind others in performance. tegra 4 was behind in launch date. tegra 5 will be behind in something else.

The Tegra Processors don't get as hot as Qualcomm ones get . Plus they are battery efficient too.
72 Gpu cores ! Holy Crap !

There Keplar Highend GPU destroys even the:
PVRG6630= 370 GIGFLOPS
TEGRA KEPLAR CUDA=960 GIGFLOPS

tegra was always words and no action in my opinion

I always hear about "Tegra being behind others in performance" but my LG Optimus 2X with a Tegra 2 was faster in everyday tasks like opening apps than all the Galaxy S2 it was compared to, my HTC One X was both faster and smoother than any Galaxy S3 i have compared it to, again in everyday tasks. UI>Benchmarks, sorry.
Not to mention Tegra 3 despite having a "weak" GPU never throttled like Qualcomm's S4 Pro, S600 or S800, Tegra 3 had insane thermal performance as it could get to insane heat and still not throttle.
Current happy owner of a SD600 phone which is snappy as hell :D

Without LTE? That's the problem phone makers are facing when they consider using tegra.
17. ihavenoname (Posts: 1523; Member since: 18 Aug 2013)
Can't Nvidia just add LTE support? Shouldn't be that hard.
22. Extradite (banned) (Posts: 316; Member since: 30 Dec 2013)
That will cost them an additional $15.
That's why Samsung Exynos didn't come with a LTE version on the Note3 and S4 for the Europeans version. The note2 did with Lte, which they had to pay Qualcom $15+ for just the LTE.
Exynos are dear and is expensive than the S800,805, cause they are the A15 Cpus

Tegra 4 has LTE so I can guarantee you the tegra 5 will have an LTE version.
32. Berzerk000 (Posts: 4109; Member since: 26 Jun 2011)
Nvidia made a big deal about the LTE modem they made to accompany Tegra 4. Tegra 3 could have LTE as well, the HTC One X+ had Tegra 3 and LTE on AT&T.

why u like lags in ur gaming experience?
2. nokia12 (Posts: 363; Member since: 19 Nov 2013)
nvidia has been always first to create hype and last to market..
hope they change their stratergy.. and can bring tegra 5 and tegra 4i in devices by q2 at max .. anything later than that then they should start preparing for ces 2015 from now..
qualcom is being beaten at low end by mediatek.. we need nvidia at high end to challenge .. even though Qualcomm is great but everyone hates monopoly
10. grahaman27 (Posts: 349; Member since: 05 Apr 2013)
Nvidia will bring ultra gaming performance to mobile, tat is the differentiating factors.
Imagine, more powerful than a PS4 in a chip the size of a dime, producing only 2 watts of energy!

With the tegra 4 coming out last and basically not mattering they need to figure out how to get there flags out before competition beats them to the market.
13. mutant_dentist (Posts: 2; Member since: 05 Jan 2014)
i am a gamer and i have to say this nvidia mobile gpu is a joke compared to powervr gpu
every single time they make the new tegra its is lagging way behind the competition ....lol 72 cores i cant believe i fell for that
15. Martin_Cooper (Posts: 660; Member since: 30 Jul 2013)
Good GPU but nothing special and Qualacomm is beating everyones ass in the high end market. Tegra 4 isnt out yet on any major phone. They are way behind. Die in peace Nvidia mobile gpu, you wont be missed.
16. Extradite (banned) (Posts: 316; Member since: 30 Dec 2013)
Are you sure about that...
The iPad4 is a year old device, with a GPU that is 2years old, which is still on par with Adreno450 which is even not on any mobile yet.
The PVRSGXROUGE6630 destroys the Adreno450 twice the GPU performance. It"s expensive that hardly no OEMS will use this.
It produces 370Gigflops vs A450 170Gigaflops.
So you don't no what you are talking about.
The Tegra Keplar Cuda has 900Gigflops, that is insane and immense for a mobile GPU
20. Shatter (Posts: 2031; Member since: 29 May 2013)
900 gigaflops of GPU power is insane for a phone right now. With that kind of power your talking running ps3/360 quality games.
Tegra 4 was poorly executed and overpriced so no OEMs bought it. If they priced it right and pushed it more then OEMS would of used it.
Tegra 4 beats the snapdragon 800 in lots of things and its like 6 months older.

"The iPad4 is a year old device, with a GPU that is 2years old, which is still on par with Adreno450 which is even not on any mobile yet. "
what have you been smoking bro , in not even on par with the Adreno 400 ..
the kepler GPU is really impressive , if nVidea brings with it a new A57 it would be a killer chip... (unfortunately rumors say it won't be)
24. Extradite (banned) (Posts: 316; Member since: 30 Dec 2013)
Read post 16 again, Gigaflops...
25. brrunopt (Posts: 552; Member since: 15 Aug 2013)
the PowerVR SGX 554MP4 comes at 68.1 GFLOPS , less than half of the Adreno 450
26. livyatan (Posts: 753; Member since: 19 Jun 2013)
What's with this spamming of yours?
Here's some information, please read carefully and stop the nonsense.
Tegra 5 - 345 GFLOPS (beats the ps3 and xbox 360 handily )
Adreno 420(not 450) - unknown, but probably over 200 GFLOPS
The iPad Air's PowerVr SGXG6430 GPU is weaker than even Adreno 330, btw.
28. kassi (Posts: 87; Member since: 25 May 2013)
they said Adreno 420 is 40% faster than Adreno 330, so that would make 180 or 220 Gflops depending on which version of the 330 they meant.
34. Extradite (banned) (Posts: 316; Member since: 30 Dec 2013)
I wasn't spaming, 250 not 300. Error
Pvsgx554x8 not 4
30. Berzerk000 (Posts: 4109; Member since: 26 Jun 2011)
There is no Adreno 450, it's the Adreno 420 that's in the Snapdragon 805. Also, the Adreno 330 is more powerful than the SGX554MP4 in the iPad 4, and the Adreno 420 is supposed to bring 40% more performance over the Adreno 330. Where are you getting your information from?
35. renz4 (Posts: 273; Member since: 10 Aug 2013)
no adreno 450 but snapdragon 805 is based on krait 450. maybe they confused about the naming
21. imkyle (Posts: 1023; Member since: 18 Nov 2010)
I'd like the Tegra Note to be available other then one retailer.

I'm waiting for that Tegra 5 tablet that has been rumored to be coming early this year. And as for all of you Nvidia naysayers, what has qualacomm done for us gamers? Where is their Shield equivalent? Where is their Nvidia tegrazone app that showcases optimized apps? Nowhere? That's because Nvidia made mobile gaming a priority. Anyway on paper doesn't mean jack. I want actual performance, the best processor I've used compared to its peers was the Texas Instruments omaps vs the other first gen dual cores. But TI quit the mobile scene so...
36. renz4 (Posts: 273; Member since: 10 Aug 2013)
qualcomm did have tegrazone equivalent called GameCommand but it is not as successful like nvidia tegra zone. they pull the app from play store in less then a year and change their strategy since then. but yes when gaming is concern only nvidia really serious about it.

Nvidia is always a must have for my gaming pc, hope they can put them in the phones now.
