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.

Just like all backers of ARM, you're missing the answer to "why?". If I had the time, I could fire off several dozen "why not" responses to why your visions of a 64bit ARM based browser computing environment as the standard will never happen.
Keep in mind that choosing efficiency and portability over performance and productivity isn't a good business strategy. It would take a tremendous economic rebound and huge surplussed of wealth for small/medium businesses, who compromise the great majority of the deeply rooted x86 computing environment, to want to make such a [relatively needless] transition that requires rewriting all their custom software.
And if I had to bet on a horse, my bet is that Intel and maybe AMD will easily become comparatively power efficient to ARM LOOONG before ARM is able to match Intel on performance. And it's at this point that ARM will be forever relegated to Phones and Televisions. ARM architecture isn't even designed to compete so stop trying to champion it like it's the next big wave. IT'S NOT!
