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.

A few years ago, I was tasked with fixing some malfunctioning legacy equipment. I was given two weeks to get it running. The previous crews had 90 days each to try and fix it. Having never seen this type of system outside of a museum before, I even talked to retirees turned GS/contractors from my career field for help. I found one, and his suggestion was to pick it up about three feet off the floor and drop it! It started working for a little bit. I ended up using foam, gum, cardboard and duct tape to brace a daughterboard who's slot was so worn out that the card would vibrate out if left unsecured. Apparently dropping it reseated all of the cards for a little bit. lol

Finding documentation and/or getting the manuals for old systems can be a pita. Finding SME's for legacy systems is also a pain. A lot of them are sought after for high paying jobs after they leave service bc being able to maintain these old systems is good government contract money for companies.
