NVIDIA details Variable SMP, the brain of quad core mobile computing

NVIDIA details Variable SMP, the brain of quad core mobile computing

The folks at NVIDIA are coming out with a quad core processor for mobile devices this year, and they're making no jokes about it happening sooner than later. We've just seen a Windows 8 tablet said to be running on the SoC already, and we're pretty much betting the farm on there being an Android tablet and/or smartphone with the new CPU before the end of 2011. Today NVIDIA takes us on a short tour through vSMP or Variable Symmetric Multiprocessing, the technology which makes Kal-El work as well as it does. With the details of this tech comes a bombshell: Project Kal-El will have a fifth CPU core, called the "Companion" core, which will handle low frequency tasks in the background.

NVIDIA expands on Project Kal-El, adds a fifth core

NVIDIA expands on Project Kal-El, adds a fifth core

Those interested in the processing power of mobile devices running any and all operating systems should be aware of NVIDIA's Project Kal-El, a quad core CPU the group is prepping for a late 2011 released. We first learned about this project (and future projects with similar code-names) back at Mobile World Congress 2011 where we also got our first eyes-on look at the processing power it presented via a game called Great Battles: Medieval. It was here that we got our first glance at a quad core processor working on a mobile platform, and as it was said back then, multi-core processing is, and will continue to be, massively important to mobile computing. What NVIDIA provides us today is a stripped-down and simple look at why the next generation, quad core, is much better than dual core in basically every way.

Google’s Next Nexus Phone Details Roundup [Mid-Sept 2011, pre-release]

Google’s Next Nexus Phone Details Roundup [Mid-Sept 2011, pre-release]

Each time Google creates a new version of Android, they work with a manufacturer of smartphones or tablets as well as a processor manufacturer to create a hero device to host a completely vanilla (otherwise known as totally nude, clean) version of their software. The most recent examples of this come in the Nexus S, out for sale now on three carriers across the USA working with Google's latest smartphone OS, Android 2.3 Gingerbread. For tablets, there's the Motorola XOOM, available as both a Wi-fi only device and a Verizon-carried device featuring Google's latest tablet-based mobile OS, Android 3.0 Honeycomb. Though the XOOM isn't technically following the naming scheme, each Google Android hero phone is part of the "Nexus" line, the next of these set to feature the Android system to tie handsets and tablets together in one: Ice Cream Sandwich. While we still do not know the Android number (2.4 or 4.0), we have a collection of details on this device that's sure to get you salivating.

Why the Windows 8 Tablet Market will dodge the iPad

Why the Windows 8 Tablet Market will dodge the iPad

Just this past week we learned for the first time, or rather confirmed for the first time, that Windows 8 would be made to work not only on devices so large as servers carrying massive amounts of data, but devices so small as a tablet PC. We got the chance to take a look at an early iteration of a Windows 8 tablet as provided by Samsung and we got a taste of what it would mean to be working in a fully optimized Windows-based tablet environment. What I'm seeing here is not simply another contender in the already well-dominated by Apple tablet market. I'm seeing a whole new door being opened up for operating systems to thrive in the keyboard-less touch-display world.

Say hello to the newest 4G Android tablet, the ACER Iconia Tab A501. What we have here is the twin brother to the popular Tab A500 yet this bad boy has been treated to some AT&T 4G love.

We might not have LTE but she cruises along just fine, that and the dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor helps. Read on below for our first impressions and some hands-on video.
