Speaking at Nvidia's earnings report conference Rene Haas, Nvidia’s VP of computing products, said that they are working on next-generation Tegra 4 processors that will run on Windows RT tablets. He also revealed that the next-gen Tegra 4 processors will run on multiple manufacturer versions of the upcoming Windows RT tablets without specifying which OEM will release it. A quick recap of the the Tegra 4 is enough to get anyone's blood racing. Here's a quick refresher:
The Tegra 4 is Nvidia’s next gen chip which has a quad-core SoC (system on a chip) based on ARM’s Cortex-A15 architecture that has been clocked at a blazing 1.9GHz. It includes a whopping 72 custom graphics processor cores to support super high-def 4K resolution, console level gaming graphic and High Dynamic Range photography.
If there were ever any doubts that Nvidia would abandon the RT platform, guess again. Haas just put that to rest by telling everyone that “Nvidia is very invested and very committed to Windows RT, and we feel it has a bright future,” said Haas said. “We feel this [platform] is where things are going.”
