With a former project codename, ‘Project Gray,’ the company’s first full integrated 4G LTE mobile processor — faster than it’s competitor and nearly half it’s physical size. Dropping 12 cores from the previous Nvidia Tegra 4, the 4i is based on ARM’s quad-core R4 Cortex-A9 CPU.
It’s four processing cores are powered at 2.3GHz and is built with NVIDIA i500 LTE radio modem optimization for integration with wireless computing, “making networking upgradability and scalability fast and easy.”
“Tegra 4i phones will provide amazing computer power, world-class phone capabilities, and exceptionally long battery life,” released Phil Carmack, senior VP of the Mobile business at Nvidia.
With the new chip, the company introduces “Phoenix,” a smartphone platform which will help demonstrate the Tegra 4i abilities. Also, the platform can be used as a “blueprint that phone makers can reference” when designing devices using the Nvidia 4i technologies, helping to get the product to market quicker.
The company will be showing off their Tegra 4i processing at Mobile World Congress next week in Barcelona. So if you happen to be in town, be sure to check out one detail in the future of mobile communications.
