Mobile technologies are rapidly developing – just a few months ago the first dual-core smartphone – the LG Optimus 2X, was released and in just a few weeks, the first quint-core tablet – the ASUS Transformer Prime, will also hit the market. And one thing those devices have in common is they both have NVIDIA processors inside them.

Both the Tegra 2 and the Tegra 3 are record-holders for first dual- and quint-core mobile processors. One might ask if we actually need this kind of power in our pocket devices and the answer is no, you don’t, but it’s really good to have it anyway – it makes applications faster and games better looking. Another frequently asked question is whether we’re going to need to carry car batteries to power it.

Thankfully, we won’t need bigger batteries at all – the Tegra 3 has 4 powerful 1.3 gHz cores, which make everything, from multitasking to gaming faster than ever, but it also has a fifth low-power 500 mHz core, which handles basic tasks like watching videos or reading emails ¬†and is very energy efficient. That’s why the Tegra 3 consumes even less power than the previous Tegra 2. We can’t wait for it to come out. B. A.
