Los Angeles-headquartered company WikiPad has just announced that the company’s first gaming tablet would be powered by Nvidia’s Tegra 3 mobile processor. Tegra 3 is a quad-core ARM Cortex A9-based design that integrates a “12-core” GeForce graphics processing unit (GPU).
Our first reaction was “How come there’s no gaming tablet out there?”
The truth is that, if gaming is the main purpose of a touch device such as a tablet, the WikiPad is the first to fit the profile.
The company is touting a very light and thin device with a powerful quad-core processor.
On the other hand, by the time WikiPad launches in Q3 this year, SnapDragon S4 Pro
with its Adreno 320 graphics core will probably rip through anything Nvidia currently has on the market.
We hope the mobile gaming fans will be lucky and the WikiPad launches directly with Nvidia’s Tegra 3+
