Advent Vega Note 7 with Tegra 4 is 'world's fastest' for £180

The new Advent Vega Note 7, powered by Tegra 4 claims to be "the world's fastest 7-inch Android tablet" -- and it costs just £180.

Ready for some fightin' words? The new Advent Vega Note 7, powered by the might of a Tegra 4 processor, claims to be "the world's fastest 7-inch Android tablet" -- and it costs just £180.

The Vega Note 7 claims dizzying speed thanks to the Nvidia Tegra 4 processor contained within. Inside the tablet is a 72-core Geforce GPU and quad-core Cortex A15 CPU, with a fifth core thrown in to take care of basic tasks without bothering the rest of the cores, saving on battery life.

The 7-inch screen has a 1,280x800 resolution touchscreen, which sadly falls short of high definition. It also has a 5-megapixel camera, and boasts a battery life of 10 hours of HD video playback.

Like the Samsung Galaxy Note with which the Vega Tegra steals shares its name, the Advent tablet comes with a stylus. The Directstylus pen works with one of the Tegra chip's cores, which Advent reckons makes it faster and more responsive.

The Advent tablet is based on the Nvidia Tegra Note, a tablet made by Nvidia itself to show off the power of the Tegra 4 processor. The chip is so fast it has its own app store for apps and games that take advantage of the power on offer to run super-fast with great graphics.  

The Advent Vega Note 7 goes on sale on 15 November from Currys and PC World, and you can order it from tomorrow. Or for an extra £20 you could opt for the Google Nexus 7, which does have an HD screen.
