Nvidia was obviously present at Computex 2013, since its hardware partners have already unveiled tablets based on the Tegra 4 solution. It appears that this CPU will not only change battery drain and performance, but it’s also related to an evolution of stylus touchscreen technology.


The very sociable and likable Nvidia CEO, Jen-Hsun Huang was there at the event to give us a demo of the technology. He showed off a new software-based touch tech that allows the user to involve a simple capacitive stylus with a degree of pressure-based input. The device at hand was a prototype 7 inch tablet, that interacted with a simple non digitizer stylus.

The CEO wrote using several different thicknesses and used a flat surface at the other end of the pen to erase mistakes. Sensitivity to the milimeter is promised and Nvidia claims that this will improved battery life and also offer a higher detection rate. All you need is the Nvidia Tegra 4 chip to make this work…
