The SlateBook x2 is powered by NVIDIAs Tegra 4 processor, the same processor that powers many smartphones and tablet computers. Like so many of those smartphones and tablets, it is also powered by the Android operating system.
We’ve heard that NVIDIA has been contemplating entering the tablet market with their powerful Tegra 4 processor, which isn’t surprising considering they’re already moving into the Android space with devices like the NVIDIA Shield.
There’s quite a bit of talk that NVIDIA is planning on making their own line of tablets that will be paired with their much popular Tegra SoC line (Tegra 5). I say tablet line because not only are there plans on making a high end tablet, but due to recent GFXBench testing results NVIDIA is also planning on releasing a 7 inch tablet with a resolution of 1280 by 800.
NVIDIA’s Tegra 4 and Tegra 4i processors were demoed today at MWC in Barcelona. NVIDIA’s new processors have been said to be more efficient with battery life while simultaneously delivering supreme performance for future smartphones and tablets. The Tegra 4, based on ARM’s latest Cortex A-15 platform, was benchmarked at 4,166 using the Geekbench 2 benchmark.
Thanks to a slew of leaks and early appearances NVIDIA’s newest Tegra 4-powered tablet design has never really been a secret, but the company has finally confirmed what it’s been working on for the past several months.
I recently contemplated trading-in my Asus TF700 to Amazon and buying a TF701. But, I started thinking about the up coming Nvidia Tegra K1 that should be releasing in the last quarter of this year. I know a Chinese company has released a 7 inch tegra k1 tablet and that Google is working on a 8.9 inch tegra k1 tablet. I really would prefer a 10 inch tablet.
Look what just showed up on Rightware’s Power Board benchmark site… it’s the much-rumored and highly-anticipated Google Nexus tablet. It’s showing up as the Google Asus Nexus 7 with a resolution of 768 x 1280 (that’s a portrait orientation, common for 7-inch tablets).
