Gigabyte reveals Tegra Note 7 gaming tablet
While the first tablets based on the NVIDIA Tegra Note 7 reference model started to be unveiled in late 2013, it seems there are still big names in the industry that need to catch up and Gigabyte is the last one to do so. The Taiwan-based manufacturer announced last week the Gigabyte Tegra Note 7, which they advertise as "the world's fastest 7-inch tablet" and targets both gamers and artists, thanks to the chisel tip stylus with NVIDIA DirectStylus technology.
These are the main specs and features of the Gigabyte Tegra Note 7:
- Processor: 1.8 GHz quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 4 SoC (ARM Cortex-A15 processor and 72-core GeForce GPU)

- Weight/Dimensions: 0.70 pounds; 7.87X4.72X0.37 inches

The slate will ship with a NVIDIA DirectStylus-compatible chisel tip stylus which has finger and palm recognition, while the Tegra Note Slide Cover will be sold separately. Unfortunately there is no information on availability and pricing for the time being, but the slate should appear soon for around $200 USD, as this is basically a rebranded reference model.
