NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor promotional video leaks

It's time to see our first advertisement-based demonstration of the capabilities of what was up until now simply called Project Kal-El, NVIDIA's next-level chip for mobile devices. This promotional video shows off a few key points NVIDIA hopes to put forth in regards to the awesomeness of having FOUR CPU cores in a single chip sitting on a tablet-like device, though the transparent nature of the device in this video might have you scratching your head wondering where all the metal went. Have a bit of fun watching what appears very much to be the first look at get at what NVIDIA has decided to call no simpler a name than NVIDIA Tegra 3.

For those of you that don't know, the world's first mobile super chip, that being the first dual-core processor sitting on a smartphone, was the NVIDIA Tegra 2. Internationally, this chip first sat on the LG Optimus 2X which eventually became the T-Mobile G2x here in the states, and the first smartphone here in the states with a dual core, the Motorola ATRIX, also had the NVIDIA Tegra 2. And the first tablet with a dual-core processor, the Motorola XOOM, also had an NVIDIA Tegra 2. You know what that means? I means NVIDIA basically beat everyone else to the punch. They also swarmed the world of Android in 2011, hitting a gigantic amount of devices, stomping all competitors of theirs in the dual-core market.

Read our post about Variable SMP for all the information you could possibly want about how the Tegra 3 works, that is four cores - or what's that, five? Yes, five cores. The Tegra 3 will undoubtedly be called a quad-core processor, but you'll be glad you read about how it's actually got five CPU cores when it comes down to it. The video you see in this post should show you the lighter side of all this information - power here essentially means great performance and superior graphics - that's all you need to know!
