I kinda doubt it'll be a snapdragon 810... Qualcomm's website even says it won't be available till mid 2015...
http://www.qualcomm.com/snapdragon/processors/810
" The Snapdragon 810 processor is anticipated to begin sampling in the second half of 2014 and expected to be available in commercial devices by the first half of 2015."

I'm betting on the K1 processor from Nvidia. But if it's the 64bit version it'll only be a dual core... Not sure how well most tablet apps and the Android OS is coded for 4 threads... So dual core may be fine...

3 or 4 GB would sound more realistic to me. Btw, if this device actually releases with a 4:3 display, I´m not going to buy it

Yeah, most important specs are screen size and aspect ratio, if it is 8.4"+ with 16:10 ratio I am defintely getting it, but I won't ever buy a 4:3 tablet b/c how much I do video streaming on it.

Those specs are just a pipedream.
It was reported over 2 weeks ago on Android Police: http://www.androidpolice.com/2014/06...-nexus-tablet/
These specs are more realistic to me:
•8.9" Display at 2048x1440 (281ppi)
•NVIDIA Logan 64-bit processor (Tegra K1)
•2GB RAM
•16/32GB internal storage
•8MP OIS main camera, 3MP front facing camera
•Aluminum zero-gap construction
•Stereo front-facing speakers
•8.91"x5.98"x0.31" body (that's 22.63x15.19x0.79cm)
•418g (or 427g with LTE) (that's 14.74/15.1 ounces)

If it's the Tegra k1, benchmarks of the new nexus will blow everything out of the water... And wait till custom kernels with overclocking...

5 GB RAM.... I'm posting this from a PC with only 2GB of RAM xD Phones will be more powerful than PC's at this rate.

Wishful thinking has once again made it to the rumour mill, I see.

Fake.

No company is stupid enough to sell 5GB when there are none yet with 4GB. It makes more business sense to sell a 4GB one first. (same principle as why we've got 2K and now a few 4K tv's whilst they're already capable of making 8K for several years.)
