Nvidia: Tegra 5 'Logan' More Powerful than the PS3 - Tegra 6 Could Rival Next Gen Capabilities

A newly optimized version of the Tegra 5 'Logan' was demoed at the recent Nvidia Event. According to Nvidia, Logan is actually more powerful than the PS3 and the 8800GT. (Industry, Mobile, NVIDIA)

Who cares. Nvidia talks to much. Seriously things can be more powerful but it's up to the talent that uses that power to create something truly amazing.

Agreed, but just the fact it is capable of the feat is amazing. When i say Battlefield 3 running on the old Logan chip i was like o.o.

Here is my opinion on these mobile chips. I DON'T care. I mean, I don't know about you guys but I could never ever play hardcore games on tablets.

I got Sonic Episode I and II on my tablet for my son and I could barely play that and all you gotta do is jump and dash. Go forward or back and that's it but to me, that just didn't work.

So, for all I care, tablets could go and produce next-next-next gen graphics but as long as I am using a touch interface, I am simply not going to enjoy it. Add a few physical buttons and that just changes things. Oh wait! We already have a powerful console for that and that's called a PS VITA!

It's one thing to play a casual tower defense game but it is totally another playing Battlefield, Killzone or Uncharted on a touch only device.

Until a year ago, I wanted to get a new phone every year 'cuz hey, the newest model had more pixels, had a better processor, more ram but all that's behind me. I realized that there is nothing that warrants for ME to upgrade my phone every year. My original Galaxy S phone used to lag like anything so yeah, upgrading to GS3 made more sense but now, I think mobile phones and tablets are at a point of saturation.

I don't like to talk on behalf of other people but my guess is that at least 90% of the smart devices owners do not use these devices to their maximum potential. Sooner or later, other people are also going to realize this and this whole mobile chips mumbo jumbo fill fade away -- if it hasn't started already

@zeee...there is such a thing as a joypad.

An MHL adapter allows any android device with Micro USB to output 1080p via HDMI and it also charges the tablet or phone when attached to the TV.

There are a lot of controller options for android too.

fyi, I already play games using my galaxy note 3 at 1080p on my tv using a gamepad and they look better than games like octodad, oddworld and bastion.

To name a few just off the top of my head:

dragon slayer

Enemy Strike

Contract Killer 2

Shadowgun Dead Zone

Death Dome

Does it really matter? I mean who games on a mobile device...I mean we see the shear amount of AAA console like experiences coming to Shield, right?
Campy da Camper  +   841d ago
@zee...I completely agree. Can you imagine playing Skyrim on a tablet?
zeal0us  +   842d ago
I guess they sent Tegra 4 out to die. Well it doesn't really matter since most OEMs have opt for Snapdragon 600&800 instead of Tegra 4

Even if Tegra 5 & 6 are able to pull of some graphical feats it really won't matter much far as mobile goes. Most popular mobile games like Candy Crush, Angry Birds and Temple Run doesn't have high requirements. Sure they might benefit high-end mobile games but lets be honest they aren't alot of those type games available. The are more low-end games available than high-end. Not to mention the most popular games are the low-end ones. Then there the matter of battery life.

If Tegra 6 is really coming in 2014 then they are also sending Tegra 5 out to die. Not only that but it makes me think they're rushing.
codelyoko  +   842d ago
+1 :P They are basically trying to get ahead of the curve with Tegra 6.

LOL... it would be funny if we could get in 3-4 years from now a smartphone more powerful then the PS4/X1.

look at all my disagrees, ps4 hype is so low
Codey47  +   842d ago
The problem with Nvidia is themselves...They should support their latest chipsets instead of releasing new ones so shortly after their previous iteration.

Same happened with Tegra 2 and 4 and 5.

Pull yourselves together and get a goddamn grip you silly Nvidiots!!!!

LAWSON72  +   842d ago
I wonder how many devices have the Tegra 2,3,and 4. I actually had the early tegra 2 in my X2 and it was terrible, lol.
zeal0us  +   842d ago
Tegra 2-Over 40 device not include chinese kirfs or offbrand products

Tegra 3-Over 30 devices

Tegra- Over 15 devices

Tegra 2 in my Droid X2 perform alright. Though there have been times it would restart while I'm browsing buts probably due to the custom rom I install.
LAWSON72  +   842d ago
Good info, though that reboot on your X2 was a common issue on stock for me, and the only rom I did not have the issue on was CM7. Have you ever tryed to run CM10 or 9 on that thing it reboots like crazy, lol. It is not the CPU just that 512MB of RAM. So glad I have an S4 now.
zeal0us  +   842d ago
I thought about putting CM up there but I went Eclipse Rom instead. I'm on a Verizon family account and my cousin used all the free upgrades, so I can't upgrade for another year :(.

Tegra 5- You can now play a game for 5 minutes before the battery runs out.

TDP is actually 2W. :P

to be able to run the Ira Demo on a tablet at 2-3watts is really impressive.
and Nvidia only got hands on the new GPU a few weeks ago. meaning. performance will be better with times aswell.

the only little thing i worry about is the heat.
wonder if Apple will use this since this just trows performance from all the other tablet out the window
PSjesus  +   842d ago
We are talking about the support here not the power
many mobile gaming devs prefer wider distribution on many android models from the weakest to powerful so having a chip
as powerful as PS3 to play angry birds clones or candy crush
that's a waste
Half-Mafia  +   842d ago
I hear 'Console quality graphics' alot in the mobile industry. But what about Console quality controls.

You can make your mobile game as pretty as you want, But if it plays like shit like 90% of the games. Then you have a shit game.

Speaking of 8800 GT, i still have 2 of them that i should've sold in 2009 when i got a 5870..

That's a decent chip i guess, but the frame rates wouldn't offer much in todays games.. in fact newer games would chug a lot.

Please Sony! Make another VITA (3-4 years from now) where I can play actual PS3+ quality games.

Imagine KZM with the scope and MP of the PS3 (or near PS4) game.

(PSOne < PSP
PS3 < "PSV 2.0")

I don't want to be stuck with playing IAP shooters to scratch my mobile FPS itch.

With diminishing returns in graphics, gameplay mechanics and a small 5 inch screen, I believe the next gen VITA will do better than current if Sony is still willing to try.

Tegra is were Nvidia makes some nice cash.Looking forward to Tegra 6 when things get really serious.

I'm actually more interested in Nvidia's GRID then any of their current products.

I'm still catching MAJOR flack about my complete lack of interest in G-sync as there are already PROVEN FREE methods out there to end LAG Stutter and Screen tear without buying an overpriced G-Sync monitor.

Nvidia = Home of BOLD announcements about products no one is really buying (except GTX and Tegra)

Here we go again, Nvidias been claiming their chips are faster than consoles this generation since Tegra 3, and we have it again with Tegra 5?

Mobile chips in real world terms will take a while to hit generation graphics as long as they are 'mobile chips'. You can benchmark it with full voltage in a lab setup but the real world means nothing as you have to power an entire mobile phone with about 3 volts, hardly anything left for the GPU.
CEOSteveBallmer  +   842d ago
Yeah tegra 5 more powerful than a "7 year old console" nice nvidia. atleast PS3 has more excellent library of games than android or iOS. and has a better control scheme with what you call a "Controller". gaming on smartphones and tablets?? honestly in my opinion mobile gaming is the cancer of PC and console gaming.

Doesn't matter how powerful these chips are. Nobody wants to play full pledged games on a damn 3 inch screen with crappy controls. People wanna lounge out with a buddy and coop it up on the big screen.
