When Nvida announced the Tegra 4 back at CES, they laid down the claim it was the world’s fastest mobile processor. Now, at Mobile World Congress, the benchmarks are coming in and there’s no questioning it. The Tegra 4 is a total speed demon.
A generation better than the Tegra 3 and Qualcomm S4 processors common now, it shouldn’t be a surprise that the Tegra 4 can demolish just about every other phone on the market, but now the proof is in. And Apple’s peppy A6 is no exclusion.
Samsung and Qualcomm have competition in the works though, with the Exynos 5 Octa and Snapdragon 800 respectively. And like Nvidia boasted with the Tegra 4, Qualcomm is behind its Spadragon 800 as “the fastest.” But until we see some benchmarks, the Tegra 4 is taking the cake, and handily. You can expect to see that puppy in Nvidia’s Project Sheild when it launches in this spring, and you’ll find it’s cousin the T4i folded into mobile phones late this year. Get ready for a rocket ride.
