NVIDIA shows 2015 roadmap with processors 100x faster (than the Tegra 2)

NVIDIA shows 2015 roadmap with processors 100x faster (than the Tegra 2)
NVIDIA has expanded its processor roadmap to show what we should expect all the way through 2015, and to make it all sound extra impressive, NVIDIA is saying that in 2015 its chips will be 100x faster. Of course, rather than comparing the 2015 chip to the current Tegra 4, or even the last gen Tegra 3, that comparison means 100x faster than the Tegra 2. 

So, the numbers are a bit inflated, and this also marks a bit of a delay for NVIDIA. When we first saw the roadmap, everything was a year earlier than we're seeing now. The old roadmap had Kal-el (Tegra 3) coming in 2011, and Wayne (Tegra 4) in 2012, but that obviously hasn't happened. The new roadmap has Logan (Tegra 5) coming next year, and Parker (previously Stark) coming in 2015. Parker is said to be 100x faster than the Tegra 2.

NVIDIA also gave a bit of info on the GPU upgrades, which currently use the "Kepler" core. Logan should feature the "Maxwell" GPU core, and Parker will feature "Volta", which will move to 3D transistors and stacked memory for better performance.

it would have to be a pretty ballin' processor to be deserving of the Stark name. :P

Meanwhile, a number of the best games on our phones are still in 2D... :)

yeah, but with more powerful cpu on our phones, we can port some other os to our phone. I did instal ubuntu ( ARM version, desktop, not ubuntu mobile.) on my galaxy note. it was slow. not practical. but with this kind of horsepower, I bet simiulation softwares work way better and we can run windows and linux on our phone, and even enjoy there softwares and games.

With the new Tegra processors coming out in 2014, and 2015... Cell phones can now morph into a full rang stove and cook food for you when you are pressed for time :)

Better sent it back otherwise may explode and cook your balls instead. One less customer for the bad apple.

Funny how they switched Iron Man for Spiderman. Maybe they're saving Stark for a more worthy CPU? Stark should be a killer chip.

64 Bit is coming 2014/15, 4GB of RAM/4K video from your super phablet? Could see this in a future Sony Phablet, the dark horse of Android.

The problem seems not much manufacture fancy on it. At least Tegra 4 never appear in any flagship phone in 1st half of 2013.

Wow 100x faster than tegra 2 ? The tegra 2 has 5 million of gflops so 5x100 500 million gflops thats the same level as gtx 460m gpu
