NVIDIA roadmap shows Tegra 4 coming to market in Q1 of 2013
posted by Alan F. / Apr 07, 2012, 4:32 PM
The most interesting variant of the Tegra 4 appears to be the SP3X. This version has an ARM Cortex A9 configuration with a clock range of 1.2 to 2.0GHz. But most importantly, this Tegra 4 model seems to support LTE. You might recall that it is the lack of such support on the current iteration of the NVIDIA Tegra 3 that kept quad-core performance out of AT&T's version of the HTC One X.
While it is nice to have this roadmap laid out in front of us, we remind you that healthy bit of skepticism might be in order here.

So is it worth waiting for the T4 instead of getting a T3 in 2012?

I just bought a One X. It's in the mail now and even after reading this I still can wait 'til it gets here. I knew thought that by this time next year it will probably be considered slow and outdated compared to the newer devises on the market but, I felt it was time for me to get a new device. I know this business to well to think it will stop moving forward at this rate. Still I think it's totally worth buying a phone now if you feel it's time but, if you think you can wait 'til next year then more power to you. The longer you wait the better it gets but eventually your going to have to upgrade and when you do don't expect for your device to be cutting edge for more then a year or two tops.

I think that just like the PC industry - the eternal hardware race for meeting the requirements of the operating system will stop. Remember how 10 years ago, a PC running Windows XP could only run well with all the graphical effects if the PC was at most 2 year old? And now? Even Core 2 Duo machines - from 2006 - will be easily capable of running Windows 8 - a 2012 OS. This will also happen in the smartphone industry, until the only thing which will require anything beyond the basics is games - as it well should be. Of course already we can see this on Android, with the original droid (600Mhz, 256MB of Ram) running ICS without problems - but still..
