So far we have seen NVIDIA’s Kepler architecture-based GPUs on the desktop and notebooks, but at an investor meet recently, NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang showcased the Kepler Mobile - an NVIDIA chip which will feature the high-end Kepler architecture.
Bringing Kepler architecture to mobile required huge investments according to Huang, requiring NVIDIA to shrink the chip size and get the power consumption down from Watts to milli Watts. Huang said that NVIDIA wants to get much ahead of the competition and is making a strategic decision to delay other projects to ensure that Kepler Mobile development is priority.
With a Kepler architecture, mobile devices may be souped up enough to run DirectX11 based titles. In the demo video below, NVIDIA engineers contrast the Kepler Mobile’s Battlefield 3 performance with the latest iPad’s graphics performance. According to NVIDIA engineers, the Kepler Mobile graphics features technologies such as HDR lighting and particle effects whereas the iPad’s graphics had a “vintage 1999” look to them.
The exact dates on the availability of mobile devices, sporting the Kepler Mobile chip, are not yet known.
