NVIDIA CEO Unveils Upcoming Tegra Chips, Dubbed Logan and Parker

NVIDIA on Tuesday unveiled its Tegra roadmap all the way through 2015, with the next two after Tegra 4 codenamed Logan and Parker. For now, it seems the company’s reference to Stark, which we saw all the way back in 2011, is nowhere to be found.

The company’s CEO Jen-Hsun Huang spoke at NVIDIA’s GPU developers conference, and shared a bit of info on what we can expect from this generation and beyond. Logan will apparently incorporate NVIDIA’s Kepler GPU, and also include CUDA. Parker, on the other hand, will usher in the company’s Project Denver, and will include full 64-bit capabilities and a Maxwell GPU.

“In five years, we’ll increase Tegra by 100 times,” Huang said. “Moore’s law would suggest an eightfold increase.”

With the PC market struggling, NVIDIA is attempting to gain ground in the mobile space; the company has pushed tablets hard in particular. NVIDIA most recently unveiled its Tegra 4 andTegra 4i chips, but is facing stiff competition from Qualcomm, which supplies chips for some of today’s biggest smartphones.
