Nvidia Developing Tegra 5 Powered Tablet and 2nd Generation Surface
Ryan Martin / 5 years ago
Nvidia are apparently working on their own tablet and a second generation Microsoft Surface tablet according to TechSpot. Nvidia will apparently release these tablets from next year and at least one of them will be powered by Nvidia’s high end Tegra 5 System on Chip codenamed Logan.
Nvidia’s Tegra 5 will be a mobile processor based on Nvidia’s Kepler architecture. While it will hardly be on the same level as Nvidia’s GTX 600 and 700 series it will still be a huge step forward compared to what we’ve seen in the tablet market thus far.
Nvidia’s CEO Jen-Hsun Huang has already confirmed that they are working on the second generation Surface tablet but as far as an Nvidia branded tablet goes details are a little more sketchy. The self-branded tablet from Nvidia would follow a similar line of development to the Shield Android gaming console, which Nvidia also developed on their own. Speculation thus far, from Tabtech.de, points to the potential for a “Tegra Note Premium” 7 inch tablet using a 1280 by 800 resolution display and a Tegra 4 processor running Android 4.2.2. The device would probably ship to customers with a more advanced version of Android.
