Nvidia Tegra 4 Flexes Its Muscles
As many of you are already aware by now, the Nvidia Tegra 4 has been unveiled during CES, roughly within the same time-frame as the Snapdragon 600 and 800 and the Exynos 5 octa-core CPUs. About a month has passed ever since and we’re starting to hear more and more about these particular processors, well, except for the 8-core beast which, according to certain rumors, might’ve stumbled across some issues on the production line.
Anyhow, the Tegra 4 is today’s highlight, and after we saw some impressive benchmark scores a few days ago, we’re now able to take a sneak peek at some real gaming capabilities.
Nvidia Tegra 4 – Graphics
I bet that when you hear the name “Nvidia” your mind automatically goes to “graphics”, and for good reason. The company is well renowned for its GPUs and the same philosophy has been somewhat valid when talking about smartphones as well. In other words, Tegra processors are usually expected to handle graphics better than any other chip out there. In fact, Tegra 3-exclusive games have been created in the past, simply because the chip is able to perform certain tasks that other CPUs can’t. Well, at least in theory.
In any case, if you’re wondering what the upcoming Tegra 4 can bring new to the table in the graphics department, the video below will give you the answer. In the clip you’ll get to see the difference in graphics, between running Zombie Driver on Tegra 4 and non-Tegra 4 devices. Needless to say, Nvidia’s chip is able to deliver some pretty astonishing graphical elements, such as dynamic shadows and lighting.
Hit that play button below and see for yourself, and if you’re wondering when you’ll be able to buy a Tegra 4 device, the company has previously stated that the new CPU should end up powering certain gadgets starting with Q2.
Thanks Android Police for the heads-up regarding the Nvidia Tegra 4 graphics capabilities.
