quad-core tegra

NVIDIA rocked Barcelona with a demo of their upcoming quad-core Tegra CPU, project KAL-EL at Mobile World Congress.  It's all part of their roadmap which promises 75 times the performance of the current Tegra 2 by 2014.  Yes, you read that right -- 75 times the performance.  Back to the here and now, the KAL-EL, demoed on an prototype Android tablet had five times the raw performance of the current Tegra 2, rendering full screen video at 1440p running on a 2560×1600 display.

With it's 12 core GeForce GPU, this thing is going to be insane.  Partners have the chip in hand, and we're to expect devices, tablets naturally, using this gear by Aug 2011.  NVIDIA has more to say tomorrow, we'll be sure to stay on top of this one.  [NVIDIA]
