NVIDIA Brings the Kepler Architecture to Mobile, Desktop Power for Phones and Tablets


This morning, NVIDIA released a ton of info regarding their current plans to bring the Kepler GPU to mobile devices. The addition of the Kepler GPU for the company’s next-gen mobile processor was announced back at GDC in March, but the details on what Kepler can do for a phone or tablet were still heavily under wraps. According to NVIDIA, the introduction of the Kepler GPU to mobile devices will be as big of a step as the GeForce GPU was for desktops 14 years ago. 

The Kepler GPU is capable of bringing PC-class performance and power to mobile devices, allowing for certain desktop-only programs to run just fine on mobile. For example, advanced physics and simulation software could work on your device, as well as a large suite of other OpenGL programs.

As for when we can expect to see all of this power and raw performance come to tablets and phones, NVIDIA only gave us a 2014 launch timeframe. If you are interested, hit up NVIDIA’s blog and the videos down below to see what Kepler is doing for mobile.

    That main graphic is fairly misleading…just because a chipset supports a specific feature(s) doesn’t mean it will perform well with it. Second, how many CUDA cores does this mobile chip have? Third, what is the memory bandwidth?

    I know Nvidia’s mention of this latest SoC is most likely in response to Google’s N7, and how their chip is going to be better. I think Nvidia is a little sad their chip isn’t powering the newest addition to Google’s lineup.

      From gaming on PC’s from years past with COD and Battlefield, this is great, but you still need a 2-2.5 gh processor for the older games like BF2 and MW2, until mobile devices get that as well as a decent graphics we are only half way there. Plus the more advanced games get the bigger the specs will need to be to run the full version of a game and not a dumbed down version.

      Google has an N7 Chip? Do you mean the S4 Pro chip? i was bitterly disappointed, I was looking forward to some Tegra 4 graphics on it! But a chip from last year, really Google?

    if you think Terry`s st0ry is cool, I just received a top of the range
    Volkswagen Golf GTI when I got my check for $4982 this last month and-also,
