    NVIDIA Officially Announces Quad-Core Tegra 3 with Comparison and Demo Videos


    NVIDIA outed their "Kal-El" chip which officially becomes the Tegra 3 Quad-core today. Although we have known much about this new tech for quite some time, they have included some new and interesting details about the chip, as well as some demo and comparison videos. One of the newest bits of info they shared was that the chip really has 5 cores instead of just 4. The fifth core, called the "companion core", is what primarily runs things. It handles low-power tasks like listening to music or regular everyday uses. The other cores only kick in, when more power-hungry computations are needed. This design is to facilitate more efficient battery consumption and still give the chip ample power for the most demanding apps and games when it needs it.


    Additionally, NVIDIA shared that the GPU will be a 12-core behemoth! This will give game developers a lot more power to tap into, so they can unleash their creativity to make things look more amazing in games. But, don't take our word for it. Check out these great videos that really showcase the amazing advancements in this technology!
