Currently, the most powerful mobile devices in the market sport NVIDIA quad-core Tegra 3 chips. These include the HTC One X, the LG Optimus 4X HD, and the ASUS Transformer Prime. By Q3 2012, NVIDIA has confirmed that it will be launching 2 new chipsets. These are the Tegra 3+ and the Tegra+ LTE.
The news comes to us via PC Mag. The website says that NVIDIA will be launching the ‘Tegra 3+’ later during the year, following the release of their quad-core Tegra 3 chip.
At HTC’s event in the US, Mike Rayfield, NVIDIA’s general manager, said that “a significant bump’ and should start appearing inside products from Q3 onwards”.
According to PC Mag, the NVIDIA Tegra 3 could come with an LTE modem. However, there might be a slight problem. Rayfield says that “guy who has LTE isn’t all that excited about working with me”. Rayfield was referring to Qualcomm. Currently, Qualcomm is the biggest LTE modem maker. It is also NVIDIA’s biggest rival when it comes to processors for smartphones and tablets.
