NVIDIA officially developing LTE for Tegra 3 devices

NVIDIA officially developing LTE for Tegra 3 devices
It’s a busy day over at NVIDIA. In addition to renaming the Tegra 3 to 4-PLUS-1, NVIDIA is also embarking on a joint endeavor with GCT Semiconductor and Renesas Mobile to develop LTE modems for the Tegra 3 mobile processors.

NVIDIA says it wants to “push the envelope on the overall mobile experience. Through fast data access offered by LTE, users get even better multiplayer gaming options, lightning fast web browsing, supercharged app downloads… and the list goes on and on.”

When combining these two technologies, the possibilities go way beyond gaming and could possibly bring desktop-like experiences to mobile platforms. Based on NVIDIA’s past success in the PC market, we know NVIDIA is no slouch, therefore we expect great things.

NVIDIA is also encouraging MWC participants to stop its partners’ booths to see the latest, so hopefully we’ll get a sneak peek at what they’ve been cooking up.

Since Tegra 3 uses much less power consumption than Dual cores. Putting LTE in could mean a less power hungry LTE phone? I like that!!
