NVIDIA has kept no secrets that the current generation of Tegra chips would run their course this year, especially in terms of capabilities. NVIDIA are always two steps ahead of the game though and the Tegra is no exception. CES is just around the corner and with that comes a steady stream of hardware announcements and early details, just enough to get the press pointing their iPhones and tweet machines in the direction of each announcement at the show.
The next generation of Tegra chips will be going into the next generation of mobile hardware and while no products have been announced yet its only a matter of time. “We think we will announce our [next-generation Tegra] products at CES and our customers will announced their products at MWC,” said Chris Evenden, director of investor relations of NVIDIA at Raymond James IT supply chain conference.
The new Grey SoC will feature 3G, 4G and LTE tech built in and should prove a popular choice for a lot of mobile developers. The Wayne processors however is the new multi-core ARM Cortex-A15 which will feature a new GeForce graphics engine, perfect for those high performance gaming applications.
Eyes will be on NVIDIA for the announcement of more detailed specification, especially given how much of an impact these chips could have on mobile technology for the next 12 - 24 months in this ever more fierce sector.
