Smartphone and tablets are a year away from having the same graphical prowess as video games according to processor developer ARM.  

ARM company director Nizar Romdan says ARM has been working with Nvidia, Samsung, and Texas Instruments on technology capable of creating visuals that can match the Sony PlayStation 4 and Microsoft Xbox One. Romdan claims this is possible by the end of 2017.

“Mobile hardware is already powerful,” Romdan said. “If you take today’s high-end smartphone or tablet, the performance is already better than Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. It’s catching up quickly with Xbox One and PlayStation 4.”

Romdan also says the increase graphics rendering will enable smartphones and tablets to intertwine with Virtual Reality. VR is the talk of the mobile industry at the moment with some seeing it as the future. With ARM aiming to beef up our trusty smartphone companions this can indeed become a reality.
