NVIDIA’s Project Kal-El: the First Mobile Quad-Core Processor [VIDEO]

While we’re drooling over the very first Tegra-2-powered devices to hit the market, NVIDIA is already looking ahead to the next generation. Dubbed “Project Kal-El,” the new Tegra chip will be the world’s first mobile quad-core processor, includes a new 12-core GPU and will offer 5X performance over Tegra 2 in devices that could begin production late this summer.

As an example of what Kal-El will be capable of, NVIDIA is showing it off at MWC streaming 1440p video content on a 2560×1600 display.

In addition, NVIDIA is giving us a peek at their Tegra roadmap over the next few years, with superhero-themed code names culminating in 2014’s Stark, which promises 75 times the performance of Tegra 2.

The mind reels at what will be possible on Stark-powered devices.

For now, a look at the quad-core chops of Kal-El is mind-reeling enough:

  • Well here’s to 2014…

    But someone should tell NVIDIA there R&D and Marketing Dept’s need to do there home work.
    The names are all mixed up if 2014 is supposed to be the best processor, the names should be..
    Wayne a.k.a. Bruce Wayne a.k.a. Batman
    Stark a.k.a. Tony Stark a.k.a. Iron Man
    Logan a.k.a. Wolverine
    Kal-El a.k.a. Superman

    • I think they wanted stark to be the highest because of the super advanced technology he creates
