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


    Our sister-site at Android.net just posted some pretty incredible news regarding the Nvidia Tegra 3 chip that is set to be showcased at Mobile World Congress next month. Previous 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!

    What the hell? I'm still sporting a freaking Samsung Omnia because I keep waiting to upgrade to the next generation and just before I do, something like this comes out.

    Seriously, what's next? They've caught up to the desktop in 2 years. I don't even have a quad core in my home computer yet.

    I'm rockin my D2 and very pleased but can't believe quad core is comin out only got a dual in my home computer. The generation of tegra technology is gonna be a huge leap in phones i believe. Plus thats gonna be a 6GHz core if you combine all 4 processors! I would love to get my hands on this phone or be even luckier and be the one to test it out haha. I am thinkin the price is gonna be high tho. Its beggining to be shocking what these companies can fit in such a little device. Keep up the good work whoever is devloping Tegra technology

    This is just getting crazy with all this...simply amazing!!
    Rooted OG D1 running Liquid Gingerbread 2.6, Project Elite v6.5, Droid Concepts 12 and many more!

    A Droid Bionic evolved into a Rezound which then evolved into a Nexus! Running whatever Rom I'm feeling for the day.

    The specs quoted are for the tablet version of the chipset, not the phone version. As it shows they aren't 100% sure if the phone version is dual or quad yet.

    Read the bottom values only for phones.
    Resistance is futile.

    I see less and less point in upgrading to have a "state of the art" phone when it is outdone before it comes out.

    Things are shaping up to be very interesting over the next few years. I guess I may have to go ahead and get a Tegra 2 in July, so that my next upgrade can be a Tegra 4.

    If you going to wait for that, then you might as well wait for the new technology you hear about when your about to buy one with a tegra 3, at this point waiting for the latest and greatest will never happen, as soon as one is about to come out, one with double power will only be months away from that, and so on and so forth.

    You are exactly right. And truth be told, it doesn't seem like there's much difference between tegra 2 and tegra 2.5 either.
