The graphics chip maker today revealed details for 'Project Logan', the code name for a new mobile graphics chip based on its latest Kepler architecture.

While the new tech draws just a third the power of processors found in iPad 4 to perform equivalent rendering, it's capable of all the latest rendering techniques.

"The big news here is NVIDIA's support for the OpenGL 4.3 feature set, which brings to mobile devices the same high-end graphics hardware capabilities exposed via DirectX 11 on PC games and on next-generation consoles," enthused Sweeney.

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

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.

Huang (nvidia CEO) said that Tegra 5 chips will be released at the tail end of 2013, with devices appearing early in 2014. It will also mean that next year all of Nvidia's product line will be based on the same GPU architecture, which should help lower costs.

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.

13nm process?

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

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?
