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.

Honestly, ARM in the server evnironment is going to take a LONG time to materialize in any appreciable way. As an architecture, ARM simply doesn't offer performance anywhere near Intel x86/x64. Yes, x86 uses more power, and yes, companies are trying to go green, but ARM will only find a place in especiall light server work loads when compared to Intel. There are no signs that ARM will be coming any where near x86 performance present day anytime in the next 3-5 years, where we will also see more efficient and still more powerful Intel chips.

For battery powered light work loads, ARM all the way today. Servers, idk... surely it should be pursued, but honestly its gonna take a hell of a lot of investment and a similar amount of time. Just my opinion.
