NVIDIA has apparently leaked in a set of slides today, confirming the Tegra 4 processor along with some mighty impressive specs. The leaked slide details the SoC as "Wayne" and shows a significant increase in graphics cores, USB 3.0 support, 28nm processor fabrication for more efficiency, and much much more. They're touting 6x the graphics performance of Tegra 3. Read on for the full details.
Intel might be preparing to acquire NVIDIA. The mobile processing market is really getting competitive as of late and this could give Intel the edge they so badly need. What's even crazier is the talk that Intel will make a switch at CEO and have NVIDIA's own take charge of the entire ship.
Qualcomm is back this month with another interesting video showing off the power of their Snapdragon powered smartphones. Last year they released a video showing a Snapdragon processor being powered by a bug circus, as in real live bugs and spiders.
