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)
  • Memory/Storage: 1 GB DDR3L-1600 RAM; 16 GB eMMC internal storage and microSD slot up to 32 GB
  • Display: 7-inch LED backlit IPS 10-point capacitive touchscreen with 1,280X800 pixels
  • Audio: stereo speakers with bass port capable of 380 Hz-12 kHz response and NVIDIA PureAudio processing
  • Cameras: 5 MP back-facing  with autofocus and HDR, VGA front webcam
  • Connectivity: WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, WiFi Direct, Bluetooth 4.0 LE, micro HDMI, USB 2.0, GPS wih GLONASS
  • Operating system: Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean,  Tegra HD games available via NVIDIA TegraZone
  • Weight/Dimensions: 0.70 pounds; 7.87X4.72X0.37 inches
  • Battery/Autonomy: 4,100 mAh; up to 8 hours HD video playback

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.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
