SlashGear 101: NVIDIA Tegra 4 in detail

At CES 2013 we saw the unveiling of the NVIDIA Tegra 4, a mobile processor the company suggested was the World's Fastest, it containing 72 GPU cores, five CPU cores (one of them an A15 "companion"), and the ability to work with 4G LTE. The Tegra 4 will be working with the NVIDIA Icera i500, that being a 28nm HP, Category 3 LTE (4 in the pipeline) Soft Modem. These two pieces of architecture together will be NVIDIA's hero technology for mobile devices throughout 2013.

Apple CPU demand might be too much for TSMC to handle

We've been hearing that Apple is looking to replace Samsung as the main manufacturer of the CPUs found in its iDevices, and it seems that Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacture Company (TSMC) will be the one to eventually take the reins. We're learning today that this could be both good and bad for TSMC - good, obviously, because Apple sells a lot of iPhones and iPads and would therefore need to buy a lot of CPUs. This could be bad for the same reason, though, considering that TSMC is going to need to dedicate a lot of its time and energy just to get Apple the components it needs.
