Nvidia publishes more Tegra 4 benchmarks
It has been well over a month since the official revealing of Nvidia's latest ARM SoC, but not much has been shown ever since. The company is expected to begin shipping large quantities of its Tegra 4 APU to power not only its upcoming Project Shield platform, but also the latest tablets and smartphones beginning Q2 2013.
Now that MWC is underway this week, Nvidia has revealed additional benchmarks to compare the Tegra 4 to Qualcomm's S600/S800 series of competing Snapdragon APUs.
Of course, it is almost a certainty that the company had pre-selected conditions in order to favor the performance of the Tegra 4 APU. Perhaps an even more important aspect is the missing TDP rating; the presumably more powerful Tegra 4 could potentially be much more power-hungry than the APUs from Qualcomm.
Regardless, the upcoming Tegra 4 chip will be setting new standards upon launch for the mobile world. Nvidia boasts an impressive 57 FPS in GLBenchmark Egypt 2.5 (1080p offscreen), or about 20 percent higher than the Snapdragon S800. The Snapdragon S4 (as found on the Nexus 4 smartphone) was shown to be surpassed by an even wider margin. Notebookcheck will certainly update with further benchmarks of our own once mobile devices with the Tegra 4 APU are finally made available.
