NVIDIA introduces the Tegra 3 processor, enabling improved battery life and mobile experiences for tablets and phones.
Codenamed "Project Kal-El", the Tegra 3 processor offers up to 3x the graphics performance of Tegra 2, and up to 61% lower power consumption.
It incorporates the vSMP technology which kicks in a fifth CPU when less power is required. So when users listen to music, or play back a video, the Tegra 3 processor completely disables its four performance-tuned cores and only utilizes the fifth companion core.
Complemented with a new 12-core NVIDIA GeForce GPU, the Tegra 3 delivers more realism, providing the next generation of mobile games an experience comparable of that of a game console.
