Details on the next generation Tegra 4 processor, codenamed "Wayne", leak
NVIDIA has done pretty well on the mobile market with its
Tegra 3 processor
, and it should be of no surprise to anyone that NVIDIA has been working on the next generation Tegra processor. The company even provided some
rough details early last year
However, some detailed information on the next-generation 28nm Tegra 4 leaked today, and it promises six times the power of Tegra 3. Tegra 4 appears to be, according to a leaked slide, a 4+1 quad-core design similar to that of the current Tegra 3. The Cortex-A15-based Tegra 4 has 72 graphics cores and supports dual channel memory. Tegra 4 will also support resolutions of 2560 x 1440 for encode and decode and promises very low power consumption.
Other supported features will include the USB 3.0, making this the first NVIDIA chipset to support the new and faster USB standard.
With CES 2013 kicking off in mere weeks, we should have significantly more details coming in the not-too-distant future.

As a corporate support tech (or at least I used to be one, but I've drifted into an admin role lately) I really, really wish some companies and corporate executives would get their heads out of their behinds and get rid of some of this horrible old software. Some companies have even gone to this stupid idea of keeping their old mainframe app and database and set up a web interface for it. Talk about hard to support! It's horribly inefficient, too.
Moving to a new database system with a proper modern interface would save tons of time, both on the user end and on the support end, and cost far less in the long run than the cost to migrate.
Then, there are a huge number of corporate executives who just got their jobs because of daddy and are completely incompetent. I guess we shouldn't expect much out of those types other than just more of the same stupidity.

Two weeks ago we finally unplugged our Novel 4.1 server that is running a Pentium II. No kidding. It's still turned on just in case we have to have it. We figured if we turned it off it wouldn't ever turn back on again.
I worked a contract 6 years ago where I had to convert a small gov. agency from Novel/Groupwise to Windows/Exchange. They still had a business critical Novel 3.11 server running on Pentium Pro 166mhz.
One thing is for sure. They don't make them like they used to.

You wouldn't be talking about S3 Publishing would you?
