NVIDIA plans to reveal details about its next-generation Tegra SoC at the Hot Chips conference on August 22nd. The presentation will be given by Andi Skende, who joined NVIDIA in 2012 after a long career at ATI and AMD.
This new Tegra SoC is likely Parker, a new architecture with two Denver 64-bit custom cores designed by NVIDIA and four ARM Cortex-A57 cores. FUD Zilla writer Parker will likely get Pascal-based graphics and estimates the first products based on Parker may arrive in late 2016. We're not entirely sure where Parker will end up, it may be primarily in cars, which is a hot growth market for NVIDIA.
This makes an odd mix, but Andi Skende, a chap with more than eight years at ATI as graphic architect, Fellow at Advanced Micro Devices for almost 14 years and since then Principal System Architect and Distinguished Engineer, Tegra System Architecture will give the audience a few more details.
It is expected that Parker will get an updated GPU to Pascal and all this will be manufactured by TSMC using a 16nm FinFET. With some luck, there should will be products coming based on Parker at the end of 2016 but it is more likely we will see it next year.
At the same conference, AMD will reveal more details about a high-performance x86 core design, presumably Zen.
