We already told you about NVIDIA’s plans of launching the Tegra 2 chip with 3D. But apart from that interesting piece of news, the slide contained something even more fascinating.
Within the same leaked slide, NVIDIA showcased the Tegra 3, which according to the slide is the world’s first quad-core processor. While the Tegra 2 3D bumps the speeds of the ARM processor to 1.2GHz and adds 3D support, the Tegra 3 is a whole new ball game. With a projected launch date of Fall 2011, the Tegra 3 ‘T30’ processor will have four Cortex-A9 processors which run at 1.5Ghz each and will have three times the GPU power. To give you an idea of the amount of power we are talking about, the Tegra 3 chip, which will be made for tablets, will allow devices to support Blu-ray video and displays which go upto 1920×1200.
The Slide also shows that the Tegra 3 will feature a ‘ULP CPU mode’, which is NVIDIA’s version of a ultra low power mode.
