NVIDIA Introduces Its First Integrated Tegra LTE Processor

As if the news of the GTX Titan was not enough, NVidia announced on the 19th of February that they were introducing their first Tegra chip integrated with LTE.  Known as the Tegra 4i, it packs 60 custom GPU cores, a quad core CPU based on ARM’s newest and most efficient architecture and chip, the Cortex A9 r4 (plus a fifth core to save battery life), and the newly integrated NVidia i500 LTE modem.  Man, that was a mouthful!  On the plus side, we get a highly efficient, fully integrated chip that should bring smartphone enthusiasts the power and long battery life they have been looking for in such a device.

The Tegra 4i is clocked at 2.3GHz on the CPU side.  With 5 times the number of GPUs as compared to Tegra 3, we should see a huge increase in the quality of graphics in mobile games.  Keep in mind, that the Tegra 4i is an LTE enabled chip, whereas the Tegra 4 has more processing power on both the CPU and GPU side.  You can see the exact differences in the chart below.
