NVIDIA to announce Tegra-Next SoC in August
Although NVIDIA Tegra chips are not very popular with smartphone and tablet makers these days, there is still room for them, and it looks like a new one will show up next month.
The next-gen NVIDIA chip is expected to be unveiled next month at the Hot Chips conference in Cupertino, an event that will take place between August 21st and 23rd. Unfortunately, there are no technical details known for now. The chip is called "Tegra-Next" and will succeed the Tegra X1 SoC, which was unveiled back in early 2015 and can be found inside the Shield Android TV console.
According to PCWorld, the upcoming chip might be the one inside the NVIDIA Drive PX2 computer for vehicles that has been unveiled in January at CES but did not hit the market yet. This processor is codenamed Parker and uses four ARM-based Cortex-A57 cores in two Denver2 computing units, as well as a GPU that is based on the Pascal architecture.
