During the conference at CES 2013, Jen-Hsun Huang, CEO of NVIDIA, showed a tablet with new Tegra 4 processor which can load web pages in seconds. However, it is worth noting that, in addition to processing of the content, the device is responsible for all communication with 4G networks. In the event, the manufacturer was pleased to announce its first modem: the i500 Soft Modem. The component responsible for taking care of internet connections is the result of the presentation by NVIDIA. In developing the Tegra 4 processor, NVIDIA struggled to reduce the size of the i500 model. Result: The new device is 40% smaller and can work with up to 1.2 trillion operations per second.
Interestingly, you can see the modem is called a Soft Modem. The i500 works with software instructions. This means that the tablets with NVIDIA Tegra 4 processor can easily adapt to different technologies of 4G networks.
