Xiaomi Mi Pad with killer specs announced!

Fast. Xiaomi does everything fast.

They sell phones fast. They develop blazing fast devices. Its Tegra 4-powered Mi3 was the world’s fastest phone at launch. They’re growing fast, too: Xiaomi is now one of the world’s largest smartphone vendors.

And now, they’re the first to build a tablet with Nvidia's unbelievably fast, Tegra K1 mobile processor.

Launched in Beijing, the Mi Pad features a 7.9-inch display with 2048x1536 resolution which calculates to a whooping pixel density of 324 ppi. Its 6700 mAh battery means its good for up to 1300 hours of standby time, 86 hours of music playback, or 11 hours of video streaming. It comes with 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB, or 64 GB on-board memory – and a microSD slot for expandable storage. It also sports a couple of 8 MP rear and 5 MP front cameras (not that I care :P).

This isn’t the first time that Nvidia and Xiaomi worked together. Last year, Nvidia partnered with Xiaomi on its flagship Mi3 smartphone – the first Tegra 4 phone. Xiaomi sold 100,000 of them in under 90 seconds last October.

This year, Xiaomi is moving into tablets.Inside the Mi Pad: the 192 core mobile processor, Tegra K1. The ‘K’ in K1 stands for Kepler. That’s the parallel processing GPU architecture found in the world’s most powerful supercomputers.

As a result, Mi Pad offers visual and parallel computing capabilities never seen in mobile devices before. Tegra K1 supports the most advanced graphics technologies – including OpenGL 4.4, OpenGL ES 3.1, and DX12.

Those are the same standards used in PCs and next-gen consoles. That means developers can bring the latest games to mobile devices. Tegra K1 already runs Unreal Engine 4, the world’s most advanced game engine. So, games with intense graphics, like Trine 2, play flawlessly.

Sadly, the Mi Pad will be available in China starting in June as an open beta – select fans will get the option to go hands-on with pre-production units. It will retail for around $240 (16 GB) and $270 (64 GB)
