New Tegra Note shows up in Antutu

by on18 February 2014

High res screen, 2GB of RAM, Tegra K1 

We’ve already heard rumours of a new Tegra Note tablet and now it appears that a prototype has appeared on Antutu. Take the performance numbers with a grain of salt, benchmarks aren’t a very reliable source when it comes to unannounced products.

However, Nvidia is working on a new Tegra tablet and the specs match what we heard earlier. It will feature a 1920x1200 display, which is a good thing since the 1280x800 screen on the first generation Tegra Note failed to impress many reviewers spoiled by Retina displays and 1600p panels on some Android tablets. We are also expecting it to end up somewhat bigger than the 7-inch Tegra Note 7 – it appears that 8-inch tablets are the new black, but we still don’t know the exact size of the panel.

The rest of the spec includes the new Tegra K1 processor coupled with 2GB of RAM. The current Tegra Note has 1GB of RAM and a Tegra 4 SoC. The K1 appears to be clocked at 2.1GHz and the performance figures are encouraging.

The tablet is a bit slower than Nvidia’s K1 prototype showed off at launch, which was clocked at 2.3GHz. Still, it ends up quite a bit faster than the original Tegra Note, but some of the figures don’t make much sense. Bear in mind that the K1 is still not ready for prime time and that the benchmarks may not paint the full picture.
