NVIDIA says Tegra 3 does work with LTE modems, project Stark will be 25 times as powerful

He also said that the Wayne chip next year will have integrated Icera 410 LTE modems, thanks to the acquisition of Icera, and project Grey afterwards will have the more advanced Icera 500 LTE modems in it.
Expect our upcoming Wayne chip next year to provide double the Tegra 3 performance, and Stark a few years from now should provide up to twenty five times the Tegra 3 performance."Wayne is to be twice as powerful as Tegra 3, and Nick Stam hinted at a project Stark development, while talking about powering tablets: "

What could we possibly do with 25x the power of the Tegra 3?

Better games? That is Tegra's market, after all. You have to remember that mobile chips are nowhere near the power of PC chips. A quadcore mobile processor will get destroyed by a PC quadcore processor clocked at the same speed. 25x the Tegra 3 is a step in bringing mobile power closer to true PC power.

i really hope that you are joking.bro at the very least how about think about if a chip is more powerfull or just better in any way you can make the chip be as fast as a chip now but use less power so you can expect that performance to do somthing thats just as important wich is battery life.brother

Wait....so if the Wayne Chip is named after Bruce Wayne, and Project Stark is Tony Stark......is Project Grey, named after Jean Grey, or the Christian Grey?

This sounds awesome and all, but in my opinion it won't be a good thing... Battery-life on these newer processors (tegra 3, Snapdragon S4) are already somewhat lacking, and with nvidia's stark or Wayne processors it looks like phones will be lasting 5 hours with low use :/.... iMO most companies that specialize in mobile tech need to hunker down and solve the issue of power before anything else. If we keep quadrupling processing capabilities every year but keep battery tech the way it is the next generation of phones will seriously suffer. Nobody really asked for a phone as fast as a super computer, but a hell of a lot of people (myself included) have asked for a phone that runs amazingly (like with current tegra 3 devices), and last days on end without the need for a recharge. Strap a solar panel on the back of phones, or add motion based generators (like the ones used on watches), or anything! Battery is the new rival people! processor technology can stay where it is for a while, focus on better battery tech! Whats the fun of an awesome phone if you can only use it 5 hours before a recharge?
