NVIDIA's Kal-El Quad Core Tegra CPU

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Digital Home News" @ 01:00 PM

http://blogs.nvidia.com/2011/05/pro...-mobile-gaming/

"A few months back, we unveiled Project Kal-El - our next-gen Tegra super chip - as the world's first mobile quad-core processor. Kal-El combines a battery-friendly, powerhouse of a quad-core processor with a 12-core NVIDIA GPU that supports 3D stereo. Given that dual-core processors are already on market, you might be wondering how Project Kal-El's quad-core technology will improve the mobile experience. Rather than try to explain it, we've put together a hands-on demo to give you a sneak peek at the new capabilities coming to superphones and tablets later this year."

It's insane - in a good way - how mobile CPU progress has accelerated in the past two years. Prior to that, mobile CPUs were stuck in the 600 mHZ range for years - it wasn't until we saw the first 1 Ghz Snapdragon processors that things really kicked off...it wasn't long until we saw the first dual-core 1 Ghz CPUs, and now before the end of the year we'll see four CPU cores in a single chip that uses less power than less powerful chips a few years back. And what you can do with four CPU cores is quite impressive. Check out the video above and you'll see what I'm talking about!

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 Now With More Nvidia: Will Tegra 2 Be then Next Snapdragon?

"Shares of Nvidia (NVDA) are up 13 cents, or 0.9%, this morning at $14.70 amidst buzz that its "Tegra" chip is gaining ground. I reported earlier that the Asian electronics trade pub DigiTimes did a report quoting anonymous sources saying the Tegra's second version, Tegra 2, may show up in numerous tablet computers next year."

This is some interesting news and quite surprising at that what with previous talk of Samsung working on their own dual core processor. According to rumors, Samsung has just placed a very large order for Nvidia's Tegra 2 CPU. So will we see a Tegra powered Galaxy Tab 2 or then next Galaxy S phone? The other tasty bit of news that might explain Samsung's actions is that Tegra 2 might be be the reference design for Gingerbread. 2011 is going to be a good year for Android.
