Nvidia this week reported $977.2 million in total revenue for its second quarter of fiscal 2014 ended July 28, 2013, up 2.4 percent from $954.7 million the prior quarter though down 6.4 percent from $1.04 billion in the same period a year ago. This led to a 23.8 percent sequential jump in profit to $96.4 billion, or $0.16 per share. Not too shabby considering Tegra sales fell off a cliff last quarter.
The Tegra 4i processor, previously codenamed Project Grey, features 60 custom Nvidia GPU cores.
Nvidia's firing on all cylinders today. The GPU maker made waves early this morning by formally introducing the world to its GeForce GTX Titan graphics card, which is supposed to offer comparable performance to the dual-GPU GeForce GTX 690 part for the same price, and now Nvidia is announcing its first fully integrated 4G LTE mobile processor, the Tegra 4i (codenamed Project Grey).
Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang took to the stage at CES 2013 Sunday night, and proved his company is poised to do more than just ship high end GPU’s. The charismatic young CEO announced his intention to take on cloud gaming, showed off his iPad 4-smashing Tegra 4 SoC, and even debuted an Android powered handheld gaming console.
Nvidia's Tegra ARM CPUs are hitching a ride to Spain where the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC) is a developing a new hybrid supercomputer that, for the first time, will combine quad-core Tegra CPUs with high performance Nvidia CUDA GPUs, Nvidia announced. It will be the first large scale system based on this technology, and BSC expects to demonstrate two to five times improvement in energy efficiency compared with today's most efficient systems.

No, we can't afford a 2012 Lamborghini Aventador, and that's a crying shame, because we'd sure love to own one. If you're a gearhead, you'll appreciate this new model Lambo for its 691-horsepower V12 engine and carbon fiber monocoque. We dig those too, but the techheads that we are, we also appreciate the Tegra-inspired MMI infotainment system.
Project Kal-El is the codename for Nvidia's next generation Tegra processor, and if the spec sheet is any indication, it's going to be awesome. Nvidia says Kal-El is the world's first mobile quad-core CPU, and it just happens to contain a new 12-core GeForce GPU as well. Compared to Tegra 2, Nvidia says Kal-El is 5x faster, and you can bank on Kal-El devices being able to handle high resolution content. Nvidia's just getting started. By 2014, the Tegra platform will be in its 6th generation and offer nearly 75X better performance than Tegra 2.
With what we've seen from Google's Android 3.0 platform so far, we have a sneaky suspicion that the days are numbered for tablets built on previous versions of Android. Nevertheless, Stream TV Networks plans to offer up its eLocity A10 tablet for pre-order on February 15. This tablet rocks some serious hardware -- like Nvidia's Tegra 2 T250 processor -- but it's also saddled with Android 2.2 (Froyo), a risky gamble with Motorola's Xoom tablet on the horizon.
Onkyo knows a thing or three about audio, and apparently they know something about mobile graphics, too. The company just announced its first Android 2.2 tablet -- the TA117 -- and unlike its poky predecessor, this one comes equipped with Nvidia's Tegra 250 chipset clocked at 1GHz.
It's a 10.1-inch slate with a 1024x600 resolution and comes with a pair of USB 2.0 ports, built-in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a microSD card slot, HDMI, a 1.3MP camera, and either 8GB or 16GB of internal memory.
So what's not to like here? It's only available in Japan with no word on when, or even if, Onkyo plans to ship this one stateside.
