NVIDIA announced its newest processor which they called Tegra 4i last week. It is basically another version of their Tegra 4 processor but packed with a 4G LTE modem and a bit smaller (8mm thin). This is going to be a beast in terms of video processing for those of you who are hardcore mobile gamers (just like me).
Thanks to the “second generation PRISM 2, Direct Touch and Chimera Computational Photography Architecture,” Tegra-4i-powered handsets will offer lag-free HDR photos and videos. NVIDIA decided to create a reference phone called “Phoenix” which is an Android phone that sports a 5-inch 1080p display along with a 13-megapixel camera and of course the Tegra 4i chipset.
You guessed it right, the Phoenix handset will probably be a developer-only handset meaning that it will be used as a reference for manufacturers to create Tegra-4i-packed devices. With double the performance, better battery life while on LTE, and amazing graphics, the Tegra 4i and its 60 GPU cores is going to be a force to be reckoned with in 2013.
