    Here are two tech demos originally used to demonstrate high-end desktop PC processors earlier this year, now running on a mobile device equipped with Project Logan.

    At 2W only supposedly! This is amazing. I have to hold off from buying a new tablet. Mobile tech is advancing fast. Think about the future tablets emulating Gamecube/Wii games. This also beats the crap out of the Wii U GPU and its only mobile. o_o

    So I'm assuming it's built on a smaller fabrication process?

    I wonder how on earth they managed to do that.

    Titan owners are probably pissed right about now.

    Back in March, they announced that it would be available on devices in early 2014, and that Logan is the codename for the Tegra 5.

    And all people are going to be doing on it is installing APKs that already exist and run emulators on it.

    13nm process?

    Meh, half an year later, another chip comes out which is even more powerful.

    Rockin' an HD 5770 here.

    But this is exciting due to the low power draw.

    WE NEED BETTER BATTERY LIFE FOR EVERYTHING.

    Since I'm an uneducated buffoon when it comes to all things smartphones, I'm just going to pull my best Chris Tucker and say, "Damn."

    Bravo, Nvidya.

    And i just preordered the Tegra 4 Shield....
    I will skip Tegra 5 and Shield 2, and will wait for Tegra 6(Project Parker) and Shield 3. Yes, they are already working on Tegra 6.

    13 nanometres. A nanometre is roughly one billionth of a metre. So pretty tiny really when you consider a centimetre is about 1/100th of a metre. You're looking at 1/1000000000000 of a metre. You could use this as perspective, the width of a single strand of human hair is roughly 80,000nm

    That I already knew ;p
    It was more a question of if it's fabricated on the 13 nm process or even less.

    Kudos to Nvidia. Hopefully the handhelds get the possibility of playing anything running locally or on a computer without input lag or other problems. On the go emulations + new games for the hardware + PC games on a portable? Profit.

    This is also interesting in at least one thing: how far can the manufacturing process go until there exists problems with normal electricity constraints ie. short circuits due to the short distances between parts?

    Yes.
    Low power usage means low usage temperature. And that's a step in the good direction, as my stock 560Ti overheats daily, pretty much.
