Report: 1.5-GHz Nvidia Tegra 3 to Pack Quad-Core Power

It appears that Nvidia plans to shake things up at Mobile World Congress next month, with a new Tegra 3 mobile processor. The chip, according to Engadget and Bright Side of News, will boast a Quad-Core Cortex A9 processor and will hum along at clock speeds up to 1.5-GHz. No doubt the Tegra 3 will find  its way into cutting-edge tablets soon.

In addition, a 1.2GHz dual-core Tegra 2 3D chip is expected to power portable devices with 3D displays. This includes gaming gadgets like the upcoming Nintendo 3DS, and even future smart phones equipped with 3D screens. All of this speculation stems from an allegedly leaked PowerPoint slide from Nvidia which lays out a product roadmap describing the Tegra 2, Tegra 2 3D, and Tegra 3 in detail.

It seems the Tegra 2 3D will ship in Spring while the Tegra 3 will hit the market in Fall of 2011. We can’t wait to see more developments. Look for our planned Mobile World Congress coverage as it happens.
