Nook 2014 Tegra 4 tablet takes aim at Nexus 7 2013

At the start of the month we reintroduced you to the Nook tablet, specifically the 8-inch HD version and how it compared when up against the mighty Nexus 7 tablet. Now though, we look ahead to bigger and better things from the Nook range, as we now have confirmation about plans to offer a 2014 Nook 7 tablet with a Tegra 4 processor, which could theoretically blow the competition out of the water.

While some of you may be interested in picking up an older Nook tablet due to some stunning low prices this month, the rest of you will obviously be looking forward to seeing what else Barnes & Noble have in the pipeline.

We can tell you that a new unannounced and mystery Nook tablet has been spotted in the wild on some benchmarks, this tablet having a model number of Nook BNTV800. Just to let you know, the current Nook HD and Nook HD+ devices have model numbers of BNTV400 and BNTV600 respectively.

If that wasn’t exciting enough, the same benchmark has revealed that this tablet is rocking a state of the art Nvidia Tegra 4 processor, which is going to make it one of the best, if not the best tablet in 2014 in terms of gaming performance.

Just to remind you, the Tegra 4 chip is going to offer a quad-core based CPU with 1.8GHz per core. Compare that to the Nook HD+ which has a Dual-Core 1.5Ghz chip and the Nexus 7 2013 which is currently leading the way with a 1.5Ghz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor and a 400 MHz quad-core Adreno 320 GPU on top.

If the Nook 2014 tablet really comes with a Tegra 4 chip on board, then consumers may have to start taking it seriously as a viable competitor to the Nexus 7’s throne. Give us your thoughts on this exciting plans below.
