Google re-launching Nexus 10 with multicore processor and 8-core GPU
Google is planning on re-launching the Nexus at MWC 2013 with a new quad-core CPU and 8-core T628 Mali GPU, according to reports
Google will apparently re-launch its Nexus 10 slate at MWC 2013 with a new quad-core CPU and 8-core T628 Mali GPU, according to reports.
The reason? Simple: the Nexus 10, despite rocking ARM’s new A15 chipsets, 2GB of RAM, and the thoroughly decent Mali T604-class GPU, suffered from a myriad of performance issues that included stalls, UI stutters, and crashes.
In order to put these issues to bed once and for all, Google is ramping up the central processing powers inside the Nexus 10 via the inclusion of a quad-core CPU and the new 8-core T628 Mali GPU, which should speed things up nicely.
BSN broke the news, here's an extract from their report:
‘According to the people we spoke with, the new Nexus 10 addresses [the above mentioned issues] with a significant increase in "digital horsepower", moving from a dual-core to a multi-core design, with the T604 GPU core being replaced with an 8-core T628 GPU.’
The report suggests this revamped version of the Nexus 10 will launch at MWC 2013 and cost the same price as the original version. We’re tagging this one up as a rumour, and so should you.
Still, you can’t fault the logic…
