is t4 even being adopted by any company? the only t4 device that i know is out there is the shield...
T4 is being adopted by many device manufacturers. But the thing is that the chip wasn't going to be available from Nvidia to OEMs until the end of Q2 this year despite a whole lot of talk about T4 from nvidia for many months.
It just feels like it's been available for a long time; except it hasn't.
I still think the T4 is going to be a flop in the grand scheme of things. Nvidia has not demonstrated that it can deliver the technical performance under a thermal dissipation and power-limited environment like a tablet or phone. Plus, the T4i is the more-likely part for phones, and it's a glorified T3 in many ways. I would say closer to a T3 than a T4, but that's yet to be seen. Plus, Qualcomm hasn't slowed their advancement, and has established a strong presence. Their advantage has been fast refreshes without the blunders that Nvidia has made from the original tegra through the T3.
I await real-device benchmarks for the T4, and the dumb Shield doesn't count.
