PC gamers in the crowd might be in for a treat. The popular Mount & Blade franchise has arrived on Android in the form of a new title called Mount & Blade: Warband. This port of the title is apparently thanks to the efforts of NVIDIA.
It seems that NVIDIA is making true its reported focus on a completely new and high end "superphone" market. Its shiny new Tegra K1 processor still has to hit the market but we're already seeing a variant that has only two CPU cores but both of which carry the 64-bit architecture.
Along with the Tegra 4i powered Wiko WAX smartphone, NVIDIA was also showing the Tegra Note 7 LTE here at Mobile World Congress. The LTE equipped version of the Tegra Note 7 was announced earlier in the week. While the tablet now has LTE, it is largely the same in terms of overall style.
NVIDIA has been showing the Tegra 4i powered Wiko WAX smartphone here in Barcelona. The availability has been announced for Europe at this time, however we remain hopeful that it will spread to other markets in time. Not to mention, it is a device we are hopeful to spend a bit more time playing with in the future.
NVIDIA, along with Wiko Mobile have unveiled the latest Tegra 4i powered smartphone here at Mobile World Congress. The handset is the Wiko WAX and will be available for those in Europe. The key here, the Tegra 4i processor. This setup includes 60 GPU cores and a quad-core CPU with a fifth battery saver core.
NVIDIA is upgrading their Tegra NOTE 7 tablet, adding a bit of coonectivity. With the addition of LTE, NVIDIA’s already great Tegra NOTE 7 is getting a welcome boost of connectivity. If that weren’t enough, the tablet can be used worldwide, thanks to NVIDIA’s use of HSPA+.
We were expecting NVIDIA to be fast with the updates and looks like we won't be disappointed. We're now hearing of reports that the EVGA version of NVIDIA's stylus-enabled Tegra Note 7 is now receiving an update that pushes Android 4.4.2 to the tablet.
NVIDIA announced the Tegra Note tablet platform back in September of last year. As the 'platform' portion suggests, this is more of a reference, and since then we have seen models from Advent and EVGA, amongst others. The initial release had the Tegra Note tablet powered by Tegra 4, however it looks like an upgrade is currently in the works.
Trying to break free of an already crowded mobile chip market, NVIDIA has decided to take its mobile aspirations into a different direction. Instead of wasting its resources on budget or even mainstream devices, it will instead carve out a new market for what it calls "superphones".
NVIDIA has rolled out the latest update for the TegraZone app. This update is currently available by way of the Play Store, and brings the app up to version 2.9.0. The changelog that accompanies this update has a few key items listed, one of which is wider support. NVIDIA has opened up the TegraZone app so it can now be installed on non-Tegra devices.
