I i grew fond of them, what i dont like is the absurd and dumb resolutions they nowdays have on mobile devices.. 1080p is already overkill.. and in a gaming tablet? i reaaaallly hope it doesnt have more than 1080p.It's a shame I don't like tablets
What trick, we know the first rev is A15r3 (lower power better perf than T4 A15's), the second is a dual core denver that matches it with 64bit. This was on slides ages ago, not sure what you are confused about. The 64bit variant has already been benchmarked, so are you just not reading this site and others that have reported those scores ages ago? The 64bit soc is done, it will be in xmas devices. To answer, they have not announce a quad and what for if their dual already beats 805 and likely 810 (since 810 is off the shelf IP it won't run like NV's in house cores)? With the size of denver cores being what looks to be roughly twice A15, why quad? That would probably be aimed squarely at some low-end desktops or will come with 20nm which would allow this and still fit in a tablet envelope. It's easier to perform better with less threads in mobile and more IPC per thread. So no quad yet, just a very large dual core (like cyclone I guess), you don't need one if you do the dual properly as apple has proven again and again. The gpu arch and cores get mentioned repeatedly because that is what makes the chip special, it's a kepler and comes with everything the desktop chip does. Including features and of course dev experience already done. Nobody has to learn anything to code for kepler as it has already been learned inside out on PC's.i've noticed that everyone mentioning tegra k1 soc never, ever, forgets to specify the gpu spec - 192 cores (some even mention the kepler uarch) but somehow always forgets to mention the cpu specifications.
rather convenient for nvidia. in case they're tricking people into buying the 32bit 4 core a15 variant instead of the 64bit dual core variant, or vice versa. does nvidia even have an soc with a 64bit quad core cpu?
The SHIELD products are designed to be a high powered mobile gaming device and an extension of your gaming PC. With SHIELD you can play classic game emulators for systems like NES, SNES, Gensis, Playstation 1 / 2, N64 and more... while also being able to play all android games with a physical controller, at any time or place.Tablet gaming sucks. If I had $400 to blow, I would gladly buy an XboxOne or PS4 over a tablet or Nvidia Shield.
Oh wait I did! Man I'm loving Destiny beta!
