Asus is updating its Transformer Pad Infinity tablet with a faster processor and higher-resolution display. It will ship with an NVIDIA Tegra 4 processor and a 10.1 inch, 2560 x 1600 pixel display.

The model that launched last year was one of the speediest tablets around, and had one of the sharpest screens available. But times change, and a Tegra 3 chip and 1920 x 1200 pixel screen just don’t cut it anymore for a top-tier tablet.

Like every member of the Transformer series, the new Infinity isn’t just a tablet. You can also attach an optional keyboard docking station to use the device like a notebook. The dock also adds a few extra ports and brings an extra battery which should just about double the tablet’s battery life.

The Transformer Pad Infinity has an IPS display with 178-degree viewing angles and the same screen resolution as the Google Nexus 10 tablet.

It’s powered by NVIDIA’s new Tegra 4 chip, which is a 1.9 GHz quad-core ARM Cortex-A15 processor with 72-core graphics. The tablet can send 4K video to a PC through the built-in HDMI port, but I’m not sure how many 4K movies you’ll be able to store on the Transformer Pad Infinity’s 32GB of storage.

The keyboard dock has a USB 3.0 port and SDXC reader.

The Verge reports that the Transformer Pad Infinity should launch this fall for around $399. A model with a keyboard dock will cost about $100 more.

  1. If this will accept a USB drive and output 4K to a 4K display, I will buy this.

  2. For crying out loud, please make it also in 12″ version and I will be the first one to buy it

    1. Yes, Asus isn’t really experimenting with alternatives yet for ARM devices… This will mainly be a Tegra 4 hardware update to their Transformer series, which all run Android…

      If they had put it under Vivo Tab then it would have been Windows 8…

    1. Yes, the price is getting reasonable.

      I wonder when Chinese OEMs start producing tablet/netbook hybrids like this.
