Recently, we quite clearly heard from the lips of the head and founder of NVIDIA words the lack of interest in the smartphone segment, which the company not only achieved visible success, but was forced to write off the money spent on the purchase of mobile developer Icera modem. In the segment of the tablet from NVIDIA still it is not very smooth, especially given the revocable campaign due to a defect battery.
However, we have noted that SHIELD Tablet exposed not only “interim modernization” and markdown, but also preparing to adopt a more modern 20-nm processor Tegra X1. This system with a high degree of integration combines four processing cores with the architecture of ARM Cortex-A57 and Cortex-A53, respectively, as well as Maxwell graphic generation solution with 256 CUDA cores. Experienced before the tablet prototype had a traditional 8-inch display with a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels, an increased amount of up to 3 GB of RAM and a built-in SSD volume of 32 GB. The device had to work under the control of Google Android 6.0.
Websitein the past month, I found that in the database FCC certification authority database lit NVIDIA’s new eight-inch tablet with a symbol P2290W. This allows references, mainly to assess the dimensions of news: 120 x 215 x 7.6 mm, and its weight – 349 g Thus, it can be argued that the new NVIDIA tablet will be thinner and lighter than its predecessor. He also rely port micro-USB 2.0, adapters Wi-Fi 802.11 a / b / g / n / ac and Bluetooth 4.0 LE. When will the new product on the market, we can only guess, but the fact of the tablet certification by US authorities suggests the proximity of the moment.
