NVIDIA has unveiled the Tegra 4, which it’s dubbing the ‘world’s fastest mobile processor.’ Like previous generations of the Tegra chipset, the Tegra 4 is designed for use in notebooks and perhaps more notably, in tablets and smartphones.

The previously codenamed “Wayne” brings with it a similar setup to the Tegra 3: a quad-core processor and a fifth low-power core to conserve battery life. Despite the similar setup, however, the Tegra 4 features a completely new architecture from the previous generation, rumored to be using a 28nm manufacturing process as opposed to the 40nm process used in the Tegra 3 — allowing the chipset to have more optimal power consumption despite the increase in horsepower.

Speaking of horsepower, NVIDIA says that the Tegra 4 surpasses everything currently on the market — hence the ‘world’s fastest mobile processor’ title. The next-generation chipset features 72 GPU cores that will be able to augment everything from games to photography in mobile devices. Expect to see devices powered by the Tegra 4 later this year.
