NVIDIA Kepler technology coming mobile devices in early 2014


NVIDIA announced on Wednesday that the Kepler technology found in desktops and supercomputers is now being integrated into mobile devices.

Some readers may be familiar with NVIDIA’s Project Logan, the next-generation of mobile processor. Indeed, the Kepler stuff found in those gaming-capable PC’s is making its way into the Project Logan devices.

It is expected that the first Tegra-powered devices to feature this Kepler GPU will arrive in the first half of 2014.

Key features include:

  • The most advanced mobile graphics, with full support of OpenGL 4.4, OpenGL ES 3.0, DX11
  • First modern GPGPU with true compute capabilities and support of both CUDA 5 and OpenCL
  • Amazing power efficiency, with performance per watt 3x better than that of an iPad 4
