NVIDIA Tegra 2 Dual Core vs Tegra 3 Quad Core (Kal-El) Mobile Processors
NVIDIA Tegra 2 Dual Core and NVIDIA Tegra 3 Quad Core mobile processors are high end mobile processors from NVIDIA. NVIDIA Tegra is the world’s first mobile processor that is packed with dual Core Central processing Unit (CPU). Tegra 3 Quad Core processor promised to excel more than 2+ times in speed and performance than the Dual Core Tegra 2 and will be a benchmark among mobile processors at the moment.
Dual Core Tegra 2
NVIDIA Tegra is the world’s first mobile processor containing dual core CPU. The Dual Core CPU in NVIDIA is a highly optimized version of ARM Cortex A9 MP Core architecture. This architecture was offering two times better performance than the existing mobile processors. Symmetric Processing, out of order execution and superior branch prediction of the optimized ARM core supports delivery of fast web page load time, snappy web page rendering and a silky smooth user interaction.
Some of the Feature of Tegra 2
The optimized architecture of the ARM core offers Faster Web pages load time, lower power consumption, High quality game play , highly responsive and smooth and Multitasking.
Quad Core Tegra 3
NVIDIA introduced Next Generation Mobile Processor, Tegra 3 Quad Core processors in the World Mobile Congress 2011. Nvidia promises Tegra 3 Quad Core achieves 2+ times faster and 3x better graphic performance than Tegra 2 Processor in performance. And Tegra 3 contains built-in 12 core graphics processor to support stereo 3D.
Tegra 3 Quad Core is capable of 2560×1600 p resolution. It also designed to consume power efficiently in a way it could be referred as power consumption. NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad core processors will be packed in tablets in Aug 2011 and smartphones in end of this year.
