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.

instead of using nearly 200watts to do that, you could easily and efficiently do that with less than 10watts.

Think of the power savings a company with 1000's of desktop PC's could save by running something like an ARM android based Mini-PC(like a MK802 iii) for daily work coupled with Citrix or VDI for legacy applications. All in a thumb drive sized device that users could drop in their pocket to use at home on their monitor with an HDMI port beats the hell out of a laptop any day.

most Citrix based companies already use this, little 350 Mhz terminals that the clients have buried on their desks under piles of paperwork. Not fabulous, but they get the job done.

Not a fan of the graphical terminals they work but having a fully functional PC is still preferable.
