NVIDIA Tegra 4 gaming demo

Tegra 4 is slated to hit devices later in the year, but NVIDIA has a reference tablet with the mobile chipset platform at MWC, so we took it for a spin, trying out a few of the games that come preloaded on it...

Looks nice but, I don't want to wait for it. By the time it comes out I would do better waiting on next years processors.

And by the time next year's processors came out, you'd be better off waiting for the year after that!

this is why Samsung's Exynos is a lot better than Tegra.....it ain't picky...I owned the One X as well and now the Nexus 7 and they stutter like crap...I cant wait to replace it with the Note 8

Some people need to understand that Tegra 4 is a different story to Tegra 2 & 3. They was terrible chips I agree but Nvidia finally realized it. Tegra 4 has a GPU better than iPad 4 (A6X), which your gonna see on 'smartphones'. The Exynos isn't going to better, its CPU is pretty much the same in 'High Performance' just with 4xA7 and 1xLow Power Companion Core A15.

The GPU part if true is the SGX544MP3 which is between the A6X and Exynos Dual GPU performance. So Tegra 4 beats that, unless its the Mali T678 GPU, we'll see!

Snapdragon 800 already told that it's GPU is 50% faster than its Adreno 320 which makes it equal to Tegra 4 if you GLBenchmark.

I am being a bit bias towards Nvidia, as I love how they work with developers to make the game quality better even though its unfair to the other chips but, c'mon? Only Nvidia is pushing Android developers to develop more 'High Quality' games, other chips are just aiming for 'Higher Benchmark Scores'.

I do however like how Snapdragon integrates all its modem etc, which saves power.

But we'll see in the future!

Mr Philo, I completely agree.

One thing doesn't fit the bill though.. on the Exynos octa presentation, Samsung claimed its GPU is twice faster than the most powerful current mobile GPU.
If he was referring to iPad 4' GPU, then it has to be the Mali 628/658.
If he had iPhone 5' GPU comparison in mind, the SGX 554MP3 still seems short of being double the power

Mali T604 was mean't to be 5x faster than Mali 400MP4, but it only doubles it by a little. It marketing, but Tegra 4 has shown evidence that its a capable SoC.

Actually I take my performance back from the SGX544MP3. iPhone 5 A6 gets around 3000 on GLBenchmark at 266Mhz, whereas the Exynos one is at 533Mhz which is double, which in theory should be the same performance as the iPad 4 & Tegra 4. Although double the clock doesn't always translate into double the speed.
