“Project Kal-El-powered tablets are coming this Fall, and phones around the CES 2012 timeframe” says Nvidia, who are preparing to unleash the next generation of super powerful processors for tablet and smartphone products.
Nvidia’s Dual-Core Tegra 2 processor has been, and still is, the processor of choice for smartphones, tablets and superphones. Many of the awesome devices you’ll have heard of recently use one – the Motorola Xoom, LG Optimus 2X, Asus Eee Pad Transformer and Motorola Atrix to name but a few.
The forthcoming Quad-Core beast has the codename of Kal-El, though could feasibly become the Tegra 3 range when officially released. Nvidia have been developing it for some time now, and say that it will have 5 times the power of the current Tegra 2 chipset. Graphics will be improved by roughly the same value, with 12 cores of graphics processing power capable of 3D gaming and much more.
The Consumer Electronics Show will take place between January 10th and 13th next year and Nvidia are confident they will showcase the new Quad-Core processors being used in smartphones then. To say we’re excited is a massive understatement.
