NVIDIA today posted a video on its official YouTube channel to show off the architectural efficiency of Tegra 4. The new video demonstrates a “Tegra 4 enhanced Zombie Driver,” side by side with the same game running on a “non-Tegra 4″ device to help show the difference between Tegra 4 devices and whatever’s currently on the market.
The video shows how Tegra 4 powered devices makes full use of dynamic, real-time shadows and high-definition graphics on the 1080p display. The game runs extremely smooth with high frame rates. Check out the video and the results are pretty impressive! Isn’t?
Spec-wise, Tegra 4 (codename Wayne) is a quad-core Cortex-A15 (with a fifth, low-power companion core), a 72-core GPU – six times more than Tegra 3 and will apparently be capable of displaying 1080p @120Hz, full hardware encode/decode for video up to 2560×1440 (1440p), and a maximum output resolution of 3820×2160 (4K).
The competition isn’t standing still, however. Qualcomm is countering the Tegra 4 with its Snapdragon 800, which the company claims is even faster than the Tegra 4. Samsung is readying the Exynos 5 Octa and Apple could launch its next generation devices on A7 chipset.
