Nvidia Tegra 4 Shipments are low

Published by


Although Nvidia has successfully landed Tegra 4 orders from brand vendors such as Toshiba, Asustek Computer and Hewlett-Packard (HP) for their high-end products, because shipment volumes are still limited, sources from the upstream supply chain believe Nvidia may need to wait until the release of its next-generation Tegra 4i processor with integrated 4G LTE support to turn the tables.

Nvidia's Tegra 4 has advantages in terms of performance, but because of its high price, most brand vendors have turned to choose solutions from China-based makers or MediaTek, which offer strong performance/price ratios reports digitimes. Currently, the Tegra 4 is mainly focusing on mid-range and high-end markets. Toshiba has launched a Tegra 4-based tablet in Japan, using a 10.1-inch PixelPure LED touch panel with a resolution of 2560 by 1600. With an electromagnetic stylus and Bluetooth keyboard, the tablet is priced at JPY89,800 (US$899). HP is set to release a Tegra 4 tablet, the SlateBook x2 in the US in August, adopting a detachable keyboard design with a 10-inch 1920-by-1080 IPS touch panel, 2GB RAM/16GB ROM and support for microSD memory. The system is set to be priced at US$499.

In addition to Android, HP also recently release a Tegra 4-based all-in-on PC, priced at US$399, featuring a 21.5-inch 1920-by-1080 touch panel. Meanwhile, Asustek is using the Tegra 4 for its latest Transformer Pad Infinity, which is priced at US$599.
