Nvidia posted recently a record quarter on growing revenue from its mobile business earlier today, and in the following conference call chief executive Jen-Hsun Huang had a few interesting comments to make on mobile.
The gist can be summarized in one sentence: consumers realize “a great tablet is better than a cheap PC.” Huang said this despite the fact that Nvidia makes both desktop and mobile chips, and that’s what makes this statement interesting.
With net income from its Tegra mobile chip reaching $209.1 million, up from $178.3 million, that’s understandable. Moreover, Huang also mentioned that demand for Tegra for Android phones and the Surface offsets declines in Nvidia’s desktop business.
Nvidia is planning to bring its Tegra 4 processors in early 2013, and those will be the company’s first ones with integrated 4G LTE.

The rumored LG Nexus 4 / LG E960 Mako keeps talking about himself. After teasing us with a few images every other day, Belarusian website Onliner.by has now uploaded a full review of what has come to be known as the LG Nexus 4. After the some leaked camera samples by the Belarusian site Onliner.by, it’s time for a benchmark.
The Nexus 4 disappoints in the synthetic benchmarks department. The AnTuTu and Quadrant scores are way low for something with a quad-core Snapdragon S4 and 2GB of RAM under the hood and even slower than the scores of the international One X with the Tegra 3 processor.
All of this can be put down to this being a prototype device and things could improve considerably in the final version. That could also explain why this particular unit had just 8GB of internal memory. With the launch of the next Nexus being said to be on October 29, we don’t have to wait long to find out what the real deal would be like.
