Mobile World Congress 2014: See the Nvidia Tegra 4 (and 4i) in action

2:36 /

Nvidia shows off Tegra 4 tech, including its new Tegra 4i chip.

Hey, guys. This is Eric Franklin from CNET.com at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain. And I'm currently getting a demo of the Tegra 4. Now, these are reference tablets as the 3 identical reference tablets all running at 10 ADP, currently this one is running GO benchmark and these are running full on Tegra 4 CPUs with their 72 GPU core. We can't run too much on them right now. We're just running this benchmark, run a couple other benchmarks and they seem to be as fast as we'd expect them. Can't say for sure how good they're gonna be when they actually come out but they look good so far. Right now, we're looking at the Tegra 4 version of Zombie Driver. The game was released for Tegra 3, but now this is the Tegra 4 version. Obviously it's not out yet but here you can get an idea of what to expect. The [unk] NVIDIA and there will be some enhancements over the Tegra 3 version but I don't have a Tegra 3 version in front of me to compare but so far, it looks pretty good. This is a low power demo of the Tegra 4, not really showing off the performance but more of its low power capabilities. I'm gonna play a movie right here, start a trailer. And according to NVIDIA, it should pull maybe 25 percent less power than your typical smartphone. This is one out of reference smartphone right here as you can see, it's running move and then I didn't see he is pulling about .9 watts. According to NVIDIA this is about 25 percent less than your average smartphone. Now, we're taking a look at the Tegra 4i Phoenix reference platform. This is running real boxing on the Tegra 4i on NVIDIA's Phoenix reference, smartphone. It's not a real smartphone, it's not an actual product that's coming out but it does give you an idea of what to expect from Tegra 4i in terms of performance. I mean, animation seems pretty smooth, frame weight seems decent and the models seem to be pretty well detailed. You can see here some of the like, detail and the skin textures, the lighting. I wouldn't say necessarily console quality. I wouldn't say that personally but, I mean, it definitely looks better than what I've seen on other smartphones. Look for Tegra 4 devices that hit in quarter 2 and for Tegra 4i devices that hit around quarter 4. This is Eric Franklin, again, from Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain.
