The Tegra Note features Nvidia’s Tegra 4, which means a quad-core Cortex-A15 CPU combined with a 72-core GeForce GPU. The device comes with a 7-inch IPS screen with a resolution of 1280 x 720. With tablets like the Nexus 7 2013 edition getting a full-HD screen, Nvidia’s decision to not include one might hurt the manufacturer when it comes to sales. The Tegra Note comes with 1 GB RAM, which is not exactly all that great for heavy multitasking, as games on Android consume a significant amount of memory. The tablet features 16 GB internal memory with a micro-SD slot, surround sound speakers, microHDMI out, a 5-megapixel rear camera that can record slow-motion videos and a stock version of Android 4.3 Jelly Bean.

The tablet comes with a stylus that features Nvidia’s DirectStylus technology. The promises its DirectStylus technology will bring the “natural ease of writing” to low cost platforms. Here’s a blog post from Nvidia from June detailing the technology.

The tablet will be manufactured by Nvidia and sold through partner vendors worldwide — the same business model as its video cards — and will be available from October for $199. These vendors include the likes of EVGA and PNY Technologies in North America; Colorful, Shenzhen Homecare Technology and ZOTAC in Asia- Pacific; ZOTAC, EVGA and Oysters in Europe, and XOLO in India.
