Asus and Nvidia have together with assumed the wraps off the following-generation edition of Asus' well-received Transformer tablet line, and the novel system directs to carve out a slice of the premium tablet market. It is long from a confirm bet given the enormous hard Android tablets have had cracking into the iPad-dominated industry, but the Prime strikes—at least, so long. We reserve last judgment till we have really looks shipping hardware.
The Transformer Prime integrates Nvidia's novel Kal-El processor and it is 1 of Tegra III upper-end establish systems. We have talked about Kal-El in depth various times early; the novel chip holds a 5th 'Companion Core' to lack idle power consumption and holds Twelve GPU cores, up from Tegra II 8. NV claims that Tegra III GPU is up to IIIx quicker than Tegra II thanks to extra architectural enhancements.
The Transformer Prime utilize the similar dock as the Transformer and the tablet itself is the similar size and extends the
similar size display at a 1200x800 result. One novel characteristic of the Prime, however, is what Asus is calling "Super IPSPlus." The screen's common brightness tops out at ~500 nits, but the Prime extends an change 'Super IPS' manner that pushes screen brightness up to 600 nits for utilize in bright outdoor surrounds.
Asus has too operated with Nvidia to develope touch-screen lag and claims the display replies with only a 50ms lag time, equated to an average lag of 110ms on competitor's products. Battery capacity has bettered over the Transformer's claimed 9.5/16 hours for mobile and docked manner; the Transformer Prime can supposedly function 12 hours severally and up to 18 hours when linked to the dock. When we asked Asus how it carried its battery capacity tries, the company replied: " In increase, battery capacity solution were found with a fixed 720P video playback with entire slots on and display brightness at 60nits. We are even optimizing battery capacity with NVIDIA and look these numbers to maintain true or improve somewhat."
