28nm Wayne Tegra 4 still slated for 2012

Written by Fuad Abazovic

No delays

Nvidia shared some presentation decks with the press and we have noticed that according to slide 3, pictured below, there are no delays in the Tegra roadmap.

Nvidia listed Tegra 3 (Kal-El) for 2011 and the chip was ready well before August, but the actual hardware, namely the Asus Transformer Prime, was delayed with a shipping date set for December 2011. Tegra 4, codenamed Wayne is a 28nm chip, and we suspect that this will be more than one processor.

We have no evidence at this time, but we expect to see both dual- and quad-core versions. Judging by the current schedule Wayne should be ready to ship by mid-2012 and in the second part of 2012 there should be some phones and tablets based on it. Nvidia might again show Wayne chips at the Mobile Word Congress show in Barcelona, Spain in early February. We expect Qualcomm and TI will use this show to show their latest 28nm chips as well.

The roadmap that was leaked back in September suggested that Kal-El will be succeeded by Kal-El+, a kicker chip in 2012 and that Wayne will only come in late 2012. That same roadmap, has the Gray with Icera integrated modem, something that Qualcomm offers with S4 8969 28nm 1.7GHz dual core chip.

Tegra 3 will be an attractive for many phones and tablets in early 2012, but for the second part of the year we expect that Nvidia can launch dual- and quad-core Tegra 3 Wayne chips to make the competition run for its money.

So far, Qualcomm only has quad core S4 in Q4 2012 or Q1 2013, while TI has OMAP 5 with two high-end and two slower chips approach ready for second part of 2012.

Don't trust nvidia on schedules,
Tegra 2 delayed by almost a year
Tegra 3 delayed from august to december
Fermi from holiday season 2010 till april-may
Kepler 2011 holidays till ???????

I think every one will have delays with 28nm
