If a benchmark report out of Italy can be believed, Acer is working on a very impressive tablet. Said to house a Tegra 4 chipset, and pack a display upwards of 2560 x 1344 pixels, the device packs a punch. There is also rumored to be about 2GB RAM tucked in there, giving the muscle to keep up with just about anything.
As you can see in the picture below, the benchmark notes the device is made by Acer, and checks in at 1.8GHz. An NVIDIA GPU is mentioned, but nothing signifying that it’s the Tegra 4. Unless NVIDIA has a chipset nobody is aware of, this would have to be the Tegra 4.
If this is the successor to the Nexus 7, it packs a punch. It’s about twice as fast, and a the display resolution is Chromebook Pixel-esque. That’s a lot of power for a $200 tablet, though, so we’re not going to assume anything. Price is paramount for the Nexus lineup, and it would be hard for this to meet that sweet spot, even at cost.
None of this news is official, so we’re simply speculating at this point. For a company that has dedicated themselves to making budget-friendly devices, this seems far-fetched. Exciting, but unlikely at the same time. We’ve been surprised before, though, so who knows.
