Nvidia Tegra 4

NVIDIA’s rumored Tegra Tab 7 tablet has apparently been spotted in AnTuTu benchmark, although the product is yet to become official.

Recent rumors have suggested that NVIDIA may be interested to launch its own 7-inch tablet, which may be called the Tegra Tab 7 – a name for which NVIDIA already holds a trademark.

China’s Shenzhen Homecare Technology will reportedly make the device, and we’ll notice that the alleged AnTuTu benchmark test shows that a “TegraTab7-Premium” device has been tested in China.

Running Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and sporting a 1810MHz chip – we assume it’s a NVIDIA Tegra 4 CPU – the device scored a more than decent 27643. But that number is significantly lower than what the Shield console scored in the same test.

That said, we’ll remind you that there’s always a chance such tests are fakes, so we’ll take it with the appropriate grain of salt.

At this time, it’s not clear when a Tegra Tab 7 will be launched. But the company must certainly not be happy with the fact that other Android OEMs have not chosen the Tegra 4 processors to power their 2013 devices – aside from its Shield console, there aren’t that many Tegra 4 devices out there.

The Tegra Tab 7 is said to pack a 7-inch display with 1280 x 736 resolution, 5-megapixel camera, microUSB, microHDMI and stylus support.

  • Yea… they’re launching their “own” tablet because no other company in the world wants to touch “Tegra”.(Rightfully so as well, they’re terrible imo)

    1280 x 736 resolution? Mah gawd

      i don’t think it was that bad.

      You don’t want too high of a resolution for a gaming tablet. Remember that is what hurt the Nexus 10 in terms of performance. Having 2500×1600 means the processor is doing more work. Which in terms of games makes them slow down and in most cases laggy. I like that they’ve kept it around 1280×800. That was a good choice in terms of performance design.

        But there really aren’t any games nor there will be any games for a long time that Tegra 4 couldn’t handle in Full HD. For gaming screen is also important and seriously, why not 1600×900?

        • renz

          maybe it is to keep the price down. remember device like Nexus 7 was subsidized by google. google can sell their nexus device near or at cost but in return they expect the user to spend their money on google play store

          • MasterMuffin

            That’s true, Nexus 7s have slightly hurt competition with their good specs and low price that others can’t match if they want to make profit. They have to give up on some specs, and performance > screen

          Keeps cost and battery size down

  • the resolution is too low and I don’t think the Tegra will work good in a 7″. I use it in a 10″ tablet and the Tegra4 is getting seriously hot and throttles prettly fast.

    • lesportif

      What Tegra 4 10″ tablet are you talking about ????

      • Toshiba Excite Pro

        • CyBrix_21

          I think it will be a benefit if you want a more compact tablet… But bigger enough to see what they want to see… And it is also compact for reading…

          • I prefer 7″ as well but the resolution of this device is just completely outdated and an extreme dumb decision

          • CyBrix_21

            I also think that it can handle more than that…

          • of course it can, the Toshiba has a res of 2560×1600 ,no problems at all performance-wise

  • Nickan Fayyazi

    Dat aspect ratio…

    • MasterMuffin

      Probably with soft keys it’s 16:9

  • End in sight

    Tegra? Really? rotfl

    • I have to say despite everything the t4 is more than capable, only serious weakness I see is overheating and throttling

  • Man, I just found out about PC gaming on the Shield, pretty sweet when I feel like laying down and playing.

    So far any tablet HP, Toshiba, NV Shield, loves it power. So battery life goes out the window they get really hot playing games. Nvidia shield said any THD game you might get up to 5h on the shield any other android game up to 9+ hours.

    Sorry but for me the Tegra 4 is the best yet battery life, heat its just not worth it. HAHA and all the people buying a NV Shield to just stream as if you could not do that before Shield came out. So this new 7″ tablet will be fast but will get hot will not have the best battery life at that clock speed. Dont believe me try any Tegra 4 tab out now.. I have all. HP got hot yet Toshiba was the worst.
