NVIDIA Tegra Kal-El promises 5x performance boost, Stark up to 100x

Posted on Wednesday, February 16 2011 @ 22:23:39 CET by

NVIDIA showed off its Tegra roadmap for the next couple of years at the Mobile World Congress 2011 in Barcelona. The company's Tegra 3 SoC is codenamed Kal-El, the Kryptonian name of Superman. Kal-El is a quad-core mobile processor capable of driving 2560 x 1600 screens, it features a 12-core GeForce graphics unit as well as 3D audio support and lower power consumption than Tegra 2. The chip promises a five-fold performance boost over Tegra 2, it started sampling two weeks ago but actual retail products aren't expected until late 2011 or early 2012.

According to NVIDIA, Kal-El beats the performance of Intel's Core 2 Duo T7200 in Coremark 1.0:

Kal-El isn't the only superhero Tegra in the making though, Wayne (Batman) samples in 2012 and promises twice the performance of Kal-El and sometime in 2013 Logan (Wolverine) should continue the logarithmic increase in performance with a 75x boost over the current-gen Tegra chips. The next Tegra chip is Stark (Iron Man), this chip is expected to sample in 2014 and promises nearly 100x the performance of Tegra 2. Quite ambitious goals, to say the least.
