A day before the Mobile World Congress kicks off in Barcelona, new benchmarks of NVIDIA’s Tegra 4 System on a Chip have been released.
When NVIDIA first introduced the Tegra 4 back at CES in January, the company’s CEO, Jen-Hsun Huang said it would be the fastest mobile processor on the market because of the sheer volume of GPU cores (72) it had. The latest benchmarks released by the company show that Mr. Huang’s claims are correct.
As you can see in the chart, the Tegra 4 pwns the podium when it comes to benchmark numbers. The Tegra 4 reference device is almost 2.5 times faster than the iPhone 5 with the Geekbench test, and can pump out 57 FPS on the Egypt HD test.
NVIDIA shouldn’t get too comfortable with the crown on its head; it will likely have some fierce competition from Qualcomm’s upcoming Snapdragon 800 and the Exynos 5 Octa from Samsung.
The first appearance of the Tegra 4 SoC will likely be in NVIDIA’s Project Shield, which is expected for the spring.
