Battlefield 3 Shown in Action on Tegra 5 Chipset, Totally Beats the iPad 4 (Video)
You probably know that Nvidia Tegra 4 products have yet to be launched on the market and I’m talking about tablets and smartphones here. Well, there are already Tegra 5 GPU demos out there, a sign that Nvidia is craving for more power and for more hardcore gaming on the go.
Codenamed Logan, the next mobile chipset from Nvidia will bring us the Kepler graphics solution, that powers the demo from the video below. We see Battlefield 3 running on a Tegra device and looking fantastic by the way. We’re getting closer and closer to PC and console quality on the mobile and I can honestly say that Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo have a serious reason to worry about their future. The Nvidia CEO claimed during this demo that the graphics are superior to the latest gen iPad, which is a pretty confident thing to say.
What we know so far about Logan/Tegra 5 is that it will feature an ARM Cortex general purpose processing unit and a Kepler graphics processing unit. The latter comes with Direct3D support, OpenGL 4.3 and a graphics processor capable of general purpose processing on GPU. The setup is a quad core ARM Cortex A15 MPCore with low power usage, 28 nm manufacturing, CUDA technology and it’s about 50 times faster than Tegra 2.
