Hardware details for an unannounced Nvidia tablet have appeared on the GFXBench website, named the Nvidia Mocha. Unfortunately, the benchmark listing has since been removed, but we still have all the specs.
According to the benchmark, the tablet sports the company’s new 2.1GHz Tegra K1 SoC, a high performance quad-core Cortex A15 chip with 192 Nvidia Kepler GPU cores. Somewhat surprisingly, the tablet is also listed with a 7.9 inch 2048 x 1536 pixel display, which would be a substantial improvement over previous Nvidia Android devices. The benchmark also lists 2GB RAM, 16GB worth of storage, and the latest Android 4.4.2 KitKat.
For the rest of the specs, the Mocha has 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, a 7MP rear camera, a 4.8MP front-facing camera, and the usual set of WiFi, Bluetooth, and GPS connectivity features.
We don’t yet know if this tablet is something that Nvidia is planning to bring to market, if it’s an internal prototype resembling something similar to a new Nvidia product, or if it’s just an internal test design of some sort. However, Nvidia did release its own Tegra Note tablet last year to show off the power of its Tegra 4 SoC, so perhaps the company has something similar planned for its upcoming powerhouse Tegra K1 SoC.
Speaking of the Tegra K1, a benchmark posted last month, as well as comments from Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang, suggests that the Nvidia Shield 2 could be the first device to feature the new chip. We’ll hopefully be hearing more about it soon.
Nvidia’s latest mobile SoC is expected to appear in the coming months, so would an Nvidia tablet like this be on your watch list?
