Nvidia sees profit growth thanks to Tegra chips

by: LucianAugust 12, 2012
Nvidia saw its profit double in Q2 2012, thanks to the high demand for Tegra 3 chips. The growth in sales for Nvidia's mobile chips are compensating for Nvidia's slow decay into irrelevance in the PC market, as manufacturers are replacing most Nvidia's GPU's in laptops with Intel's integrated graphics chips. However, Nvidia might still be the one to have the one to emerge as winner against Intel with the fast growth of the mobile industry.

Overclocked 1.64GHz Nexus 7 dwarfs all competitors in Quadrant benchmark

by: LucianAugust 8, 2012

The Nexus 7 got a slightly weaker version of the Tegra 3 SoC, clocked at 1.2 GHz, compared to say the one in the Asus Transformer Pad Infinity, which reaches 1.6 GHz, or the one in the HTC One X, which reaches 1.5 GHz. But that didn’t stop kernel modders from cranking up the CPU of the Nexus 7 up to 1.64 GHz. So now, your Nexus 7 can become the fastest Tegra 3 device on the market, and all you have to do is apply a simple patch.

A developer called Morfic, who made the Trinity Seven kernel for the Nexus 7, has managed to optimize it to a point where the Nexus 7 is achieving 1.64 GHz per core. The souped up Nexus 7 became the undisputed king of the Quadrant [...]

by: ClaytonAugust 2, 2012

Asus has been dominating the Android tablet market in recent months. From the incredible Nexus 7, to the ever-popular line of Transformer Pads, Asus has really opened the door to a new realm of tablet computing. This leads me to ask, which Asus tablet is the all-around best?

When asking this question, it’s important to consider price, hardware, software, accessories, and many other options. I’ve narrowed the candidates down to the Transfromer Pad TF300T and the Transformer Pad Infinity TF700T. Both devices have incredibly advantageous traits. From their 10-inch display, to their optional keyboard dock, it only seemed right to pit these powerhouses [...]

What traits must a tablet possess in order to earn the title of  “the best Android tablet?” Is it hardware? A quad-core CPU, or a large, high-resolution display that bedazzles your eyes?

No matter which trait you stand by, the Asus Transformer Pad Infinity TF700T is sure to tickle your fancy.

The Miracast standard will allow simple pairing and transfer of audio and video signal to compatible TVs.

Here’s a presentation video from Nvidia that depicts the main use cases for the new Miracast [...]

Intel is off to a bad start in the mobile market, and might not get to recover

by: LucianJuly 26, 2012

No matter how hard Intel is trying, things don’t seem to go too well for them in the mobile market. According to sources quoted by Digitimes, the sales of the Intel-based smartphones aren’t going so well, and now two of their main partners, Motorola and Lenovo, are delaying their own Medfield-based tablets (and probably phones as well) at least until November.

At that point, we’ll probably be too impressed by the new Android 5.0 Nexus devices, featuring chips like the S4 Pro, Exynos 5250 and even OMAP 5, to care for Medfield phones running Jelly Bean. So things aren’t looking too bright for Intel in the future, either. But why is Intel, such a [...]

Asus Transformer Pad TF300T in-depth review [video]

by: ClaytonJuly 24, 2012

When it comes to manufacturing high quality tablet devices, Asus doesn’t cut corners. From build quality, to hardware and software, Asus tends to hit the nail on the head when creating tablets. Their recent onslaught of devices have all been well received by almost everyone who’s had a chance to use them. I had the pleasure of receiving the Transformer Pad TF300T, which is basically the TF201 Prime’s little brother.

But, make no mistake, the TF300T holds it’s own against any competitor, thanks to an impressive arsenal of specs, software, and accessories.


The TF300T is no underdog. In fact, it’s packing the specs to compete [...]

The Nabi 2 tablet for kids is now available only $199

by: LucianJuly 21, 2012

If you’d rather buy a tablet that’s a little tougher than the Nexus 7 for kids, who like being a little rougher with their toys, then look no further than the Fuhu Nabi 2 tablet. It costs just as much as the Nexus 7 and comes with the same Tegra 3 processor! The resolution is a little lower, at 1024×600, but since this is a device for kids, that shouldn’t be much a problem.

The full list of specs is as follows:

Display: 7″ 1024×600 Processor: 1.3Ghz quad-core Tegra 3 RAM: 1GB Storage: 8GB, microSD card slot Camera: 2MP front-facing camera with 720p video capture Ports: microUSB, [...]

Qualcomm demos the quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro with Adreno 320

by: LucianJuly 17, 2012


The Snapdragon S4 chip, based on the new Cortex A15-class Krait design, is currently the most advanced ARM processor core in the market. Along with the integrated LTE modem, the advanced design of the Krait architecture made the Snapdragon S4 very popular in US, both with manufacturers and end users.

But while the S4 is very good, it also has two big flaws. One is perhaps more marketing-related: being “just” a dual-core in a market filled with quad-core Cortex A9 chips. The second shortcoming, a real one this time, is the chip’s last-gen GPU. The Adreno 225 GPU is based on the very old Adreno 200 architecture, which is basically what [...]
