Day 5 of the Week of Holiday Tegra is upon us! That means this is the last day as we head into a long holiday weekend. We have already given away seven tablets, courtesy of our friends at NVIDIA., all of which can take advantage of the gaming power provided by Tegra 3 processors. But today, we’re giving away another four (4) along with $25 gift cards. If you were looking to win a last minute present, this is your last chance. Ready?
It’s Day 3! This week, we are teaming up with NVIDIA to bring our readers the “Week of Holiday Tegra” event. They have been extremely generous with the prizes, so make sure to check out the Tegra Zone, where you can find the best mobile games available for Android.
Yesterday, we gave away a pretty awesome Tegra bundle, with a Transformer Pad, lapdock, and Logitech controller for a full gaming experience. Today, we have a Transformer Pad Infinity, matching lapdock, and another Logitech gaming controller. Let’s do this! (more…)
Day 2! All week long, we’ll be handing out fabulous Tegra 3 powered devices to the DL community in our “Week of Holiday Tegra” event, thanks to our friends at NVIDIA. They put up a massive amount of prizes, all of which take advantage of the gaming potential that their Tegra 3 processor contains. Been to the Tegra Zone lately? If there is one mobile company that is doing everything in their power to push mobile gaming forward, it’s NVIDIA. (more…)
NVIDIA’s next-gen processor, codenamed “Wayne,” may have leaked out in a company slide yesterday. The mobile processor that most of us figure will be dubbed the Tegra 4, will reportedly sport a 72-core GPU, support 1080p (2560×1440) resolutions, and produce 6x the graphical performance of the Tegra 3. It’s quad-core CPU architecture remains somewhat the same, but NVIDIA will now use ARM Cortex A-15 cores. The Tegra 4 will use 28nm process, making it as power efficient as the Snapdragon S4. The slide also mentions something about supporting 4k, USB 3.0, and dual-channel DDR3L memory.
Overall, this sounds like a giant step forward for NVIDIA. We’re big fans of the Tegra 3 and the work that NVIDIA puts in to bring gaming to mobile devices, so this sounds like exactly what we were hoping would be next in the Tegra 4.
The last rumor we saw suggested that devices could ship in Q1 2013 with the Tegra 4 inside.
Our month of massive giveaways continues! Last week, Google put five Nexus 7s and five $25 Google Play gift cards, in what turned out to be some of the more entertaining contests we have ever done. This week, it’s all about NVIDIA and their Tegra 3 processor. For the next five days, we’ll give away 11 tablets powered by a Tegra processor to the best Android community on the planet. Yes, I just said eleven. (more…)
Today, AT&T announced that customers can get their hands on the HTC One X+ and the HTC One VX on November 16, with pre-orders going live for the One X+ starting tomorrow, November 13. For those not following the devices, the One X+ is just like the original One X, except it features a supercharged Tegra 3 processor that is 4G LTE compatible, clocked at 1.7GHz and Jelly Bean. As for the One VX, it is more of a mid-range Android device, featuring a 4.5″ qHD display, 5MP shooter, Jelly Bean, and HTC’s Sense 4 custom UI.
Any chance one of these are on your radar?
If you need any more evidence that we have moved into a post-PC era, the quote from NVIDIA President and CEO Jen-Hsun Huang should be a clear indication for you. In a revenue conference call today, Huang said that consumers know that “a great tablet is better than a cheap PC.” Not a very surprising quote considering the Tegra 3 powers many mobile devices today and NVIDIA’s graphics cards are usually implemented in higher-end PCs.
Huang also dropped numbers about how NVIDIA was doing with an increase of 13% bringing the company $1.2 billion from just this last quarter. It was mentioned that the Tegra line, was making up for the downturn in PC sales numbers. You can expect NVIDIA to be putting more effort into their mobile chips since we are anxiously awaiting the Tegra 4 to be coming in the near future.
