Nvidia has revealed the next-generation Tegra 4 processor for mobile devices at a press event at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
This has quad core Cortex-A15 processors with a fifth, low power, core to save battery life when the device is not in use. 72 GeForce GPU cores boost graphics performance over Tegra 3. The chip also has 4G LTE modem of Nvidia’s design.
Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC) has started working on the development of a hybrid supercomputer, also referred to as EU Mont-Blanc Project, which will combine the energy-efficient NVIDIA Tegra CPUs, based on the ARM chip architecture, and NVIDIA’s CUDAgraphics processing units (GPUs) as reported by NVIDIA.
