NVIDIA prepping its own tablet powered by NVIDIA Tegra 5?
Chip maker NVIDIA is said to be looking beyond slinging silicon, to enter the highly competitive tablet market with its own slate. Expected not to see the light of day until early 2014, the high-end NVIDIA tablet would be powered by the company's next-gen NVIDIA Tegra 5 SoC which currently has the code name "Logan".

At the same time, an unknown tablet that appeared on the GFXBench site is now believed to be a lower priced NVIDIA slate that featured a 7 inch screen with a resolution of 1280 x 800. Under the hood was a 1.8GHz Tegra 4 chip. Named the NVIDIA Tegra Note Premium, the slate was running Android 4.2.2 and its GFXBench score was just slightly lower than the score achieved by the NVIDIA Shield.

While it is not known if the 7 inch tablet will eventually be released, sources from Europe say that the top-shelf "Logan"-powered model will be available sometime in the first quarter of 2014. There is some speculation that we might see the NVIDIA tablet introduced at the 2014 CES. The only drawback for NVIDIA,besides the tough competition in the tablet market, would be the negative feedback from NVIDIA's OEM customers who produce their own tablets.
