ASUS prepping quad-core Honeycomb 3D tablet

Posted on Monday, March 07 2011 @ 00:00:04 CET by

ASUS CEO Jerry Shen announced his company plans to release a 3D tablet with a quad-core processor and the Android "Honeycomb" operating system sometime in 2011. Shen sees ASUS becoming the number two in the tablet market by the end of 2012, with a marketshare of five to eight percent by then.
According to Shen, ASUS will launch a 3D tablet running a quad-core processor sometime in 2011. Although Shen refused to be drawn into a commitment to any particular quad-core chip, right now, there’s only one to really talk about : NVIDIA’s next iteration of Tegra, code-named Kal-El (after the last son of Krypton), which will offer five times the performance over Tegra 2, as well as the ability to stream videos that are twice the resolution of 1080p.

Given the horsepower of Kal-El, a 3D tablet wouldn’t be too hard to manage: Kal-El certainly has the power to draw every on-screen element twice, once for each eye. In fact, Shen says a quad-core CPU is integral to their plans and is absolutely essential for smooth 3D video playback at 1080p resolution.
