It was rumored yesterday that Samsung’s Galaxy S4 could feature an Exynos 5450 processor clocked at a whopping 2.0GHz. Given that NVIDIA has a stake in the mobile market as well with their Tegra processors, unsurprisingly it looks like the company might be stepping their game up and come CES 2013, rumor has it that NVIDIA will be taking the wraps off Tegra-4, which has also been given the codename “Wayne”. According to the rumors, Tegra-4 will be a quad-core chipset that is based on the Cortex A15 architecture, much like Samsung’s Exynos 5450, although it seems to be clocked slightly slower at 1.8GHz.
Reports have suggested that this particular Tegra-4 chip will be used to power tablets and possibly netbooks, although an updated model called the T43 will bump the clock speed to 2.0GHz. No word on whether we will be seeing the Tegra-4 incorporated into handsets, but assuming these rumors are true, we guess we will be finding out at CES 2013. Until then we suggest taking it with a grain of salt for now.
