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.
