The chips race between NVIDIA’s Tegra system on a chip (SoC) and Qualcomm’s (QCOM) Snapdragon mobile processors is heating up. NVIDIA is gearing up to announce the Tegra 4 (code-named “Wayne”) that’ll offer big improvements over current Tegra 3 SoCs according to ChipHell. A leaked NVIDIA slide suggests Tegra 4 will have a “4-Plus-1 Quad Core Eagle” CPU, 72-core GPU (20x the power of Tegra 2 and six times more powerful than Tegra 3), DD3L memory support, 2560 x 1600 pixel-resolution support along with VP8 acceleration and H.264HP, 28 nanometer process for lower power consumption and USB 3.0 support. A release time-frame isn’t included in the slide, but Engadget surmises NVIDIA will make an announcement no later than Mobile World Conference in February 2013.
