Qualcomm-S4 (1)

[Updated with TI's input on the OMAP 4460]

Nobody seems to have a perfect launch in the chip industry. Sometimes they get it right, sometimes they don’t. Their only consolation... is that their competitors can have the same problem. We’ve been upset with Nvidia for delaying, for months at a time, both the Tegra 2 and Tegra 3 chips, but the others have had and have delays...

apple-ipad-3

“Quad core tablet”, “four times the graphics performance of Tegra 3″, “the second coming of Jesus Christ – again”, and of course all the usual “amazing,... spectacular, magical and all the other attributes we’ve heard before about any new Apple device, appeared once again in the Apple media a couple of days ago. Except many of those are not exactly true R...

Tegra 3 vs AX5

TheVerge

Everyone knows the importance of benchmarks in the high-tech industry. With things like user experience or manufacturing quality, manufacturers, or, better said, marketers, can make... unsupported claims, without ever risking to be called out. But in the world of cores and RAM modules, benchmarks are, almost always, the final argument in any dispute. So, when the largest tech company...

Intel-vs-the-world-2012

We’ve had the privilege of being able to speak with Intel on several occasions, as well as with manufacturers that are planning on putting their fresh hot tech in upcoming generations... of Android devices.

Really though, to be honest, I just don’t know. In the tech world, everyone with half a brain  knows that absolutely everything is going mobile. Even a cursory glance...

First of all, I think Nvidia has done us a great favor, and we should be thankful to them. I wouldn’t say they’ve brought all the 3D games to Android. That  isn’t true or... close to being true, but they’ve certainly done their part, and have tried to bring high quality games not just in content but also in graphics to the Android platform, thanks to the Tegra Zone...

4-PLUS-1

It’s a strange name, to be blunt. Yet it captures the real essence of NVIDIA’s newest, most powerful and beastly Tegra 3 processor.... You’ve probably heard the rumors already. A quad-core chip that has a 5th extra core or companion core, otherwise dubbed as the Ninja core, moreover, the shadow core.

ZTE_Mimosa X_for press

Less than a day after announcing two new ICS-running smartphones, ZTE ups the ante with the Mimosa X, a 4.3” device running on Nvidia’s Tegra 2 System-on-a-Chip . We have already seen many... devices built around Nvidia’s dual-core architecture, but the Mimosa X is special in two significant ways.

First, it holds the honor of being the first smartphone completely built on Nvidia sili...

wifi-display-works

Later this year, there will be a new industry standard called WiFi Display, that will start appearing in both mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets, but also smart TV’s. Both... TI and Qualcomm are pushing for this standard in 2012 and we should expect at least a few devices to have it by the end of the year.

Samsung and Nvidia haven’t announced anything related...

ces2012-nvidia-asus

NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang spoke of great things to come for the company at CES 2012 while cross-referencing to a Toyota Corolla as the best-selling vehicle of all time. He shared that just because... it is a highly in demand car, not everyone wants or needs one. Huang referenced this with Android tablets because there are now a multitude of sizes, shapes, and specs available. After just four years, Andr...

asus_padfone_5-580x386

If you don’t already know what the PadFone is, it is basically ASUS’s way of combining a tablet and a phone into a pretty sweet device. Therefore, when we heard about the new version... of the device and the benchmark that revealed its Qualcomm Snapdragon S4, we jumped all over it. However, instead of featuring just a dual-core processor, Engadget reported that “the Asus Padfone wi...
