So NVIDIA is taking the smartphone market by its evolving SoC’s. World’s first SoC manufacturer and designer to bring a Dual-core along with a Dual-core 3D and now they are about to show their so called Nvidia romour, The Quad-Core smartphone processors. The specs and the level of features are un-certain at this moment but its clear from their Tegra Evolution path that these processors are deliriously powerful.
Tegra 3 is believed to support
- stereoscopic 3D gaming,
- power to handle 13,800 MIPS,
- A multicore Cortex-A9 architecture, CPU’s that use ULP(Ultra Low Power) technology.
For the record, At CES 2011 Tegra 2 chips have already powered flagship Android devices like the LG Optimus 2X and Motorola Atrix 4G and Motorola’s Xoom tablet. And we’re looking forward for many launches at the MWC 2011.
That’s actually very exciting and will be exciting if we see these processors in action at the retail market soon.
NVIDIA Tegra 4…What??
Android phones are about to get quite ridiculously powerful if NVIDIA have anything to do about it. While we’re still awaiting to see Tegra 2 chipsets, the manufacturer is lining up quad-core Tegra 4 chips for use inside Android devices.
NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang made the announcement that not only are the Tegra 3 chips nearing completion, but that work has already begun on the Tegra 4 gear. It wont stop their either, with Huang promising “every single year, there will be a new Tegra”.
It’s another boost for the rapidly-growing Android OS. Expect to see some very speedy phones touching down next year.
