NVidia reveals its plans for its upcoming SoC

So we guess one can never be too early to make an early announcement then, as NVidia has let in a few fortunate souls to get a sneak-peek at what’s in store for the company’s system-on-chip lineup.

Just when we thought that the pair of Tegra 4 processors, which have recently made its debut, is the future of mobile computing, it’s seems that the chipmaker is just warming up in preparation for greater things ahead.

NVidia gave some details about its upcoming SoCs codenamed Logan and Parker. The former is said to be paired with Kepler GPU, making it the first Tegra SoC with CUDA capabilities. The latter, on the other hand will feature a Maxwell GPU and a 64-bit ARM CPU, a five-years-in-the-making processor developed by NVidia which currently goes by the codename Project Denver.

Information about the release dates of these next generation SoCs are vague, but Logan is expected to make its debut early next year while Parker won’t be available until 2015.

    meh… will try to avoid NVidia based devices as much as possible as they take too long to release the necessary drivers … thus hindering updates from HW manufacturers …

      yes it does take time to release the drivers to the public but not to the smartphone makers (whoever uses their product). at the first place, how will a manufacturer optimize the firmware and the hardware if the driver isnt available to them? still, the smartphone makers don’t have the right to publish the said drivers unless told so by NVIDIA and other peripheral makers.
