Graphics processors in the next generation of mobile devices will outperform those of consoles, according to Nvidia's senior vice president of content and technology Tony Tamasi.

According to Bit-Tech, Tamasi said the next model of chips, which will follow the Tegra 4 currently used in Nvidia's Project Shield portable console, will perform better that those used in the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

"The PS3 and Xbox 360 are barely more powerful than mobile devices... The next click of mobile phones will outperform [them]," he said.

According to Bit-Tech, currently both the PS3 and Xbox 360 have graphics chips capable of around 200 gigaflops of computing speed and the Tegra 4 chip boasts 80 gigaflops, while Nvidia's Titan PC GPU is capable of close to 4,500 gigaflops.

By comparison, the upcoming PlayStation 4 is running at 1.84 teraflops.
