Nvidia shows Kepler-powered Tegra 5, unprecedented graphics power on mobile
The upcoming Tegra 5 chip is codenamed Logan and built on a 28nm manufacturing node. It might be the first one to leapfrog Adreno and PowerVR competitors on ARM. We have actually already seen the first impressive demos of Logan this summer, but this one is truly impressive.
Nonetheless, this chip is still too power-hungry for mobile devices. The developer version of Logan consumes 2-3W of power while final Tegra 5 for phones should end up optimized to run at at around 1W. However on tablets, the Logan with Kepler combo is expected to be more powerful than the PlayStation 3. Impressive.
The test that really wowed us here renders a very realistic human face with all reflections, lighting, skin textures, and expressions. The Ira test runs on full 1080p and you can find a video of the demonstration right below.

Sooo we are at Tegra 4 right now, It doesn't sound crazy a launch in Q4' 2014 or something like that.

AFAIK nvidia already sent sample to partners. device based on it are expected to hit on Q1 next year.

You can replace Anand Chandrasekher @ Qualcomm.....

Snapdragon 800 isn't a single processor, it's a processor class like Snapdragon S4

Aand there you are, smacked down again, Intel.
This thing will go over 300 GFLOPS on tablets, and Nvidia will license it.
Intel can only drem about competing with ther graphic solutions, and that means no competing in the whole SoC market of course.
The HD 4000 is the lowest voltage integrated GPU yet way weaker and hungrier (about 160GFLOPS and 15w)
Not to mention drivers where Nvidia just leapfroged them with Open GL 4.3 and Direct X 11 support in this mobile GPU

I wonder how powerful maxwell will be this is what nvidia was claiming.
I bet the maxwell will hit 7 teraflops atleast, the new r9-290x is 5.6teraflops but its not 20nm.

new AMD Radeon will eat it ;)

If you're on a budget you go amd. Otherwise no.

GF110 rated at 1.58 Tflops. fully enable GK110 (quadro K6000) rated at 5.2Tflops. by the the time maxwell hit it could be exceeding 10Tflops.

Soo..you wrote the dumbest comment ever?
On to my comment..Intel is ambitiously branding their Iris graphics line, after dropping IT PowerVR graphics for the SoC business.
Now that pretty much means they are sticking with their own, far inferior graphics in the both of most important silicon markets - the ULP SoC's and LP APU.
And if that happens, they have no chance in competing.
The way I see it, Intel will have to drop the GPU business or else they can call it quits.

Please Nvidia don't release it late this time, you know like you did with Tegra 4... This should be ready for the first 2014 flagships..

i heard that the first device to use T5 was nvidia own 10 inch tablet which i think will be similar to how they did with their Tegra Note. but ever since the chip comes out from the fab nvidia claim that they already sent sample to partners (back in july if i remember correctly)

Ug nvidia stop showing off the future when you cant even bring the tegra 4 to the present.

Why 28 nm? Everyone else will be on 20 or 14 by the time tegra5 is released
17. kamejoko (Posts: 110; Member since: 10 Nov 2011)
TSMC try to build 20nm, that mean current don't have 20nm. Only 28nm.
28. renz4 (Posts: 236; Member since: 10 Aug 2013)
from what i know so far it seems nvidia wants device based on T5 comes out in Q1 next year. latest news i heard about TSMC 20nm it won't be ready until second half 2014.

Gotta love nvidia announcing what will likelly come out in 2-3 years as if it were round the corner lol! Sides, seems you'll save on heating with such devices!

This would be great for a next-gen ouya or other android console!

That is a use that makes plenty of sense in a small ventilated box, travelling gamer's dream with such a powerful gpu

ira looks kinda retarded...

honestly i want to know the cpu portion of Tegra 5. we know about the graphic portion since last july. many expected it will be based on A15 but an article on Forbes suggesting that Tegra 5 might nvidia own 64 bit ARM cpu (Denver) instead of A15.
31. renz4 (Posts: 236; Member since: 10 Aug 2013)
Is that info directly from nvidia? I first know about T5 being A15 from there as well

here is the nvidia tegra roadmap from 2013
