NEW YORK ( TheStreet) - The 2013 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas officially opens tomorrow. But some big announcements are already making news today.
The Tegra 4 is being touted as "the world's fastest mobile processor" for notebooks, smartphones and tablets. They're calling it a quad-core device, but it really has five inner cores with that low-power, fifth core which is designed to maximize battery life.
There's no word on actual chip speeds, but we do know that the Tegra 4 does have more than 70 graphics cores. Unlike the competition (from Qualcomm (QCOM - Get Report) ) this new, fourth-generation processor does not include 4G/LTE capabilities.Nvidia also announced a new, portable gaming device which will run on a Tegra 4. Dubbed Project Shield, it's also described as having a 5-inch touchscreen and capable of providing next-generation super-resolution video, via an HDMI connection, to any of the new (super expensive) "4K" TV sets being announced at CES, this week.
