NVIDIA officially launches Tegra 3 as world’s first quad-core mobile processor

Confirming what we’ve long expected, NVIDIA today officially announced the Tegra 3, the world’s first quad-core mobile processor.  Dubbed the “Kal-El” chipset for as long as we can remember, this is more than an average step forward in mobile technology.  The Tegra 3 promises performance of up to 5X the stuff we’re seeing in this year’s dual-core Tegra 2 however it is also more power friendly, leading to longer battery life.  The first device to launch with the Tegra 3 is, as we knew all along, the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime tablet.

Check below for a few demonstration videos as to how the quad-core processor looks in action, including the return of Glowball.
