    Nvidia Road-Map Leak Indicates Tegra 3 will be a 1.5GHz Quad-Core Chip!


    Previously, our sister-site, DroidForums.net, reported that Nvidia planned to showcase their Tegra 3 CPU at Mobile World Congress next month. Some speculation in the industry indicated the Tegra 3 might be an 'enhanced' dual-core chip, with the Tegra 4 coming about a year later sporting quad-core technology. Apparently, Nvidia has been busy, and they want to shower us with techno-affection; the above leaked road-map pic from Nvidia indicates that the Tegra 3, which is scheduled to start shipping to phone manufacturers in the fall of 2011, is actually a 1.5GHz quad-core CPU! What can be said? Simply. Incredible. Here are some of the Tegra 3 details:
    • Quad 1.5 GHz cores
    • 3x faster graphics
    • Ultra low power CPU mode
    • Support for Blu-ray video
    • Display resolutions up to 19201200

    As you can see in the pic, Tegra 3 churns through data at about 13800 MIPS. That's 3x faster than Tegra 2!

    If Nvidia can hold this pace, then the Tegra 4 could be simply ridiculous. It looks like this year and 2012 will be exciting years for Android phones!

    and battery producers. I can't imagine what 4 cores running at 100% pulls.

    it was pointed out that the chips for the phones, as can be seen from the graphic, may not be quad core. even if it's only a dual core, that's still 2 x 1.5 ghz - that thing will smoke! whadda ya say CK and tp - i'm thinking i won't be jumping at the Bionic just yet...

    im thinking im getting tired of this......

    i keep wanting to get a phone upgrade and then see this... y upgrade to bionic, ill wait on 3d, y then ill wait for a quad core then. phone manufacturers and chip makers are starting to hurt themselves IMHO! too much, too fast that people dont know what to use there upgrade on and just keep waiting to use it.

    Hmmm....I'm wondering how much heat these cpus will be putting out.
    Regardless, this is incentive to hold off on the bionic.

    I seldom wait around on my Droid X to do something. I am more excited about 4G myself.

    Quad at 1.5Ghz kind of makes the Bionic's Dual Core look like nothing exciting - the trick will be to get something that will be fresh for just the right ammount of time, is the Bionic the One - the NEO of mobile devices, I am not sure yet - my Mind is Open and I choose the Red Pill

    Actually, Hummingbird at 1GHz pulls 2.5 watts at full load... Tegra 2 only pulls around 630-650 milliwatts per core at 1GHz. Nvidia baked in intelligent power gating and clock gating.
