More news coming out from Nvidia during SIGGRAPH 2013 but this time instead of it being hardware related with showing off their upcoming Kepler GPU along with Project Logan which, when their forces are combined, create Voltron… I mean Tegra 5. This bit of news is in regards to software being shown off running on the Kepler GPU and it isn’t some little game engine or anything like that.
While the SIGGRAPH conference has gotten underway this week, Nvidia has finally begun showing off some future goodies that up until now we have only heard about. If you follow us on a regular basis then you already have probably read here that Nvidia’s Kepler GPU will be making its way to Android devices soon. You will also probably be aware that the next chipset after Tegra 4 is codenamed Project Logan, or just Logan for those of you wanting to feel a bit more personal with Nvidia’s next chipset already.
Today Nvidia held their press event at GTC 2013 and the company talked about all kinds of good stuff ranging from information about Nvidia’s GRID cloud gaming system and, of course, mobile chipset goodness was brought up. Nvidia’s CEO, Jen-Hsun Huang,who is always fairly entertaining to watch during Nvidia events, was on stage once again and along with him came a new roadmap for their mobile chipsets.
Along with today’s announcement of Tegra 3, nVidia was generous enough to show everyone their new roadmap regarding chipsets for Android. We get to see two new names pop up on the usual chart layout for their roadmaps and the possible performance gains each one brings is almost scary. Say hello to Logan and Stark.
