The processor will feature the same quad-core setup as the Tegra 3 plus the fifth ninja 'battery saver' core.
In terms of architecture, the processor will use a Cortex-A15, and the GPU will be "72-core," with 6 times the power of the current chips.
Furthermore, and most importantly, the Tegra 4 uses the 28nm manufacturing process, meaning battery life will be improved significantly. Additionally, the processor has support for USB 3.0, 4K video and resolutions up to 2,560 x 1,600.
Zilla says the final version of the chip is on the way, as Nvidia has already shipped out the revision before retail.
The Tegra 4 is expected for mass production soon and to be seen in tablets in the Q2.
