NVIDIA CEO Shows Off Battlefield 3 on New Kepler Mobile Hardware


Speaking at last week’s company investor day, NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang, gave attendees a treat for the eyes. If you know NVIDIA, you know about their love for roadmaps and teasing future (and I stress future) products. Last week, Jen-Hsun gave everyone a peak at a project called, Kepler Mobile. With the Kepler Mobile chip, mobile devices will be able to rival the processing power of today’s computers, allowing gamers to play top titles such as Battlefield 3 on a tablet.

NVIDIA engineers have been working hard to shrink down the size of Kepler, while also bringing its power consumption down from dozens of watts to hundreds of milliwatts. During GTC, Jen-Hsun announced that the upcoming Logan processor (possibly known as the Tegra 5) would feature the Kepler GPU.

So, while we await Tegra 4 devices and the performance they have in store, I guess it’s time to start waiting for this as well.

  • I would like to play Battlefield on PS Vita but it dosnt have that chip

  • Granpa0

    I wonder what the battery life is like. Looks great!

  • Col_Angus

    BF3 and especially the entire CoD franchise suck… too many whiny kids. I’ve switched to playing Arma 3 recently and haven’t looked back.

  • ScoDisQue

    Love to see hooked to Oculus Rift.

  • until technology evolves enough to give us great battery life, this is just for show.

    • Niggo372

      It is good news for Android consoles though. Ouya already uses Tegra chips, so they will probably upgrade to this when it is out.

  • randy

    Looks like we might finally catch up to iOS games from two years ago…

    • JoshGroff

      That is the sad and honest truth. Then again, Linux in general is usually behind when it comes to gaming, so it’s almost expected.

    • droyd4life

      Are you retarded?

  • Pat Hamilton

    Is the video really zoomed in or do they have to have the FOV at like 50 to run.

    • Joshua Percell

      I’m glad it wasn’t just me thinking that…

  • Diablo81588

    This is such garbage. Rival today’s computers my ass. Maybe low end budget computers..

    • Ok maybe the rivaling computers remark is a stretch, but it’s still a huge leap in quality for mobile platform gaming. Look for the silver lining!

    • nate

      maybe low end budget laptops…

      • michael arazan

        I play all the cod and battlefield games, I used to play pc more but use my xbox more often now. PC is more fun for me control wise. But even with a medium PC with a good graphic card this does not look better, and I doubt hardcore gamers would even bother using this, or at least not the 1st generation.

    • Christopher Riner

      True, but think about it: they’re saying computers “today”, and then comparing them to a chip that probably won’t be out for three years. Think of what specs were like 3 years ago on desktops– and I’m not talking Hewlett Packards I’m talking actual rigs. Yeah, the top spec’d rigs would still blow away the best mobile chipsets we’ve got today. But if you had specs similar to what the tegra 4 has now, in a computer then, then you’d probably be able to play most of the big game titles out. I mean they’re definitely not even, but I still see the feasibility of what he’s saying, ya know.

  • Austin Warren

    I dont understand the hype behind Battlefield 3 and 4.

    • they are pretty good games with great graphics.. to each his own..

      • Austin Warren

        Murica . have fun paying real money for in game ammo.

    • Diablo81588

      They’re good games?

      • Austin Warren

        Great graphics. Horrible story and gameplay.

        • SomeDooD123

          Story is irrelevant. It’s an online multiplayer game. And it’s a great game at that.

          • Austin Warren

            Ehhhh to each his own. Rather have another bad company game.

          • Daistaar

            Oh my God! For the first time I agree with one of your comments!

          • Abhijeet Mishra

            Then why is there a campaign included with it? 🙂

          • JoshGroff

            Who knows? 😉

    • JoshGroff

      It’s like CoD with vehicles. That’s all I can think of.

      • Austin Warren

        You’re riight. But battlefields gameplay and controls are worse.

        • JoshGroff

          So I’ve heard, but can’t you just change the controls?

          • Joshua Percell

            On PC yes. On console, you can choose different layouts, but the default is generally better than the other layouts.

          • JoshGroff

            So there’s no make your own layout thing? Bogus.

        • Big_EZ

          It’s different, not worse. It’s a different type of game, it’s more of a simulator than arcade which is what COD is. It’s similar to comparing two racers like Burnout or Midnight club to something like Gran Tourismo or I racing. In COD anyone who has any experience with a controller (consoles) can play half decent within minutes. In Battlefield it takes awhile to get use to it and become proficient, and you continue to get better the more you play unlike COD were it’s so easy you can max out your potential in under an hour. A lot of people hate Battlefield simply because they aren’t good at it and aren’t willing to put in the time to learn it. I love both games for different reasons, but Battlefield is the better game (multiplayer)

    • Azn_Android

      Battlefield 3 is actually somewhat realistic unlike COD. In COD, one person can completely sway a team while Battlefield 3 actually requires some sort of team effort to win. Not to mention that the graphics are beyond the graphics of COD.

      • Austin Warren

        There’s more to games than graphics.

        • JoshGroff

          Truer words have never been spoken.

        • Azn_Android

          Really? Did you happen to go blind for the first 2 sentences of my post?

      • Abgar Musayelyan

        This how Austin read your post :
        Bla Bla Bla. .. . … Realistic. … . .. … . . .. . Bla Bla Bla. .. . .. … . . .. .. . .. .. … .. … Graphics

    • Abhijeet Mishra

      I’ve not played the multiplayer in BF3 nor CoD, but when it comes to the campaign, the former sucks. The combat is clunky, the shooting mechanics are clunky, the story is boring, the characters are boring, and it’s basically a big bore. In fact, I often wonder how people enjoy the gameplay in multiplayer, the campaign I played has a bad feel to the shooting, just no fun when you hit an enemy. Is the multiplayer using a different game engine? o_0 because Frostbite 2’s shooting sucks in my view.

      • Roy Harper

        I don’t think anyone likes the campaign in BF3. Frostbite 2 is far from perfect, but the feel is better in multiplayer from my experience (PC is way better too). If you just want to run around with a gun, CoD is definitely better. If you want teamwork and vehicles you have BF3 or Arma.

  • why is the video so zoomed in it’s beyond watchable?
