NVIDIA Corporation, a manufacturer of graphics processors and media and communications devices, has introduced its first fully integrated 4G LTE mobile processor, the NVIDIA Tegra 4i.
Previously codenamed Project Grey, the Tegra 4i processor features 60 custom NVIDIA GPU cores; a quad-core CPU based on ARM's new core - the R4 Cortex-A9 CPU - plus a fifth battery saver core; and a version of the NVIDIA i500 LTE modem optimized for integration. It enables smartphone performance and capability previously available only in expensive super phones.
Tegra 4i's new 2.3 GHz CPU was jointly designed by NVIDIA and ARM. It also integrates an optimized version of the NVIDIA i500 software-defined radio modem which provides LTE capabilities.
Tegra 4i mobile processor's camera capabilities include the NVIDIA Chimera Computational Photography Architecture recently announced in Tegra 4.
"NVIDIA is delivering for the first time a single, integrated processor that powers all the major functions of a smartphone," said Phil Carmack, senior vice president of the Mobile business at NVIDIA. "Tegra 4i phones will provide amazing computing power, world-class phone capabilities, and exceptionally long battery life."
