Qualcomm unmoved by Tegra 4 benchmarks
Qualcomm’s senior VP of Product Management, while giving an interview to The Verge, said that the latest Snapdragon chip “easily” beats the Nvidia Tegra 4. He went further to say that Qualcomm chips are “so much more integrated” than any Nvidia chips available. This is a subtle hint towards the lack of LTE integration on most of Nvidia’s chips. According to the interview Qualcomm has already been listed to be used in over 50 products to release this very year, packing Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800 chips. The company is “more focused on shipping products” than simple competing who is the fastest.
In the LTE light, Qualcomm already has the upper hand when delivering top notch performing chips. While Nvidia Tegra 4i is going to fill the LTE gap in Nvidia’s arsenal, it will not be the top performer; instead it will compete with Snapdragon 600 mid-range devices. Qualcomm in another instance also showed disinterest in pursuing eight core processors too, stating that there is no apparent need for them in the current market. We will get back to you if some “real” benchmarks of Qualcomm’s latest show up.
