X-bit Labs spreads word that NVIDIA will reveal the first details about its "Wayne" and "Grey" Tegra SoCs at the CES show in January 2013, whereas the first actual products are expected to be shown at the Mobile World Congress in February. Wayne is the next-generation Tegra chip while Grey is a Tegra 3 based SoC with integrated 3G and 4G/LTE capabilities. The first phones with Grey may hit the market by the end of Q1 2013 or in Q2 2013.
“We think we will announce our [next-generation Tegra] products at CES and our customers will announced their products at MWC,” said Chris Evenden, director of investor relations of Nvidia at Raymond James IT supply chain conference.
Nvidia Tegra "Grey" system-on-chip features built-in 3G and 4G/LTE communication technologies, the developer pins a lot of hopes on it as it should help it to penetrate the market of mass smartphones (that can be sold at a discount price), which will boost its market share considerably. Tegra "Wayne" is the next-generation multi-core application processor, which is presumably based on ARM Cortex-A15 general-purpose cores as well as a new GeForce-class graphics engine.
