EVGA have just launched their fast as lightening Tegra NOTE 7 into Europe, with immediate availability in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland, with more European countries to follow soon. This is great news for performance junkies as it packs some seriously impressive hardware that sets it a fair bit ahead of the competition in this size category.
“The EVGA Tegra NOTE 7 tablet is the perfect travelling companion – combining a lightning-fast mobile processor with a brilliant 7-inch (17.8 cm) HD display in a sleek, comfortable design. Play the latest games at full speed. Capture stunning photos. Watch HD video for up to ten hours. And listen to your favourite music with booming, room-filling NVIDIA PureAudio. It’s mobile freedom at the speed of life.” Said EVGA in a recent press release.
As you can see from the rather extensive feature set below, there isn’t much that the new tablet can’t do and when it comes to working or gaming you’ll be enjoying the benefits of the new Nvidia Tegra 4 processors. The new processor features a quad-core design for the high end stuff, while also having a 5th core that can be used to conserve power when you don’t need the tablet to run at full power. The onboard GPU features 72 cores that will be able to make easy work of even the most demanding mobile applications.
Input is taken care of by the a high quality touch scree and the addition of the only chisel tip stylus on the market, which is said to be 3x more responsive that other stylus solutions. This allows for natural writing on the screen and will no doubt prove handy for those using the device for work as well as gaming tasks.

The tablet also features the new Nvidia Chimera technology, this enables always-on HDR and give s the NOTE 7 the title of being the only HDR camera in a tablet. Something that should look pretty epic thanks to the 1280×800 IPS display which is backed up by Nvidia Prism 2 display processing, which modulates the display backlight and per-pixel colour values to extend battery life up to 40%
