NVIDIA GeForce Tegra 4

The NVIDIA Geforce in Tegra 4 SoC is an integrated graphics card for tablets and smartphones. It offers no unified shader architecture but still separate pixel and vertex shader (48 / 24).

Nvidia states that the GeForce GPU is faster than the ARM Mali-T604 in the Exynos 5 Dual-Core 5250, but a leaked GLBenchmark score positiones it slightly below. However, due to the very good gaming support (Tegra Zone), the Tegra 4 SoC should provide a very good gaming experience in Android devices.
