NVIDIA to brand Tegra 3 cores as 4-PLUS-1

Posted on Thursday, February 23 2012 @ 21:22:08 CET by


NVIDIA's Tegra 3 is a quad-core chip with a fifth low-power core designed to save battery life. Now the company reveals that 4-PLUS-1 will be the official name of this architecture.
Today, we’re officially calling it the 4-PLUS-1 quad-core architecture and trademarking the name.

The reason is that, the more popular this technology became, the more our customers wanted a name for it that’s unique and descriptive. A name they could put on a box or a store sign that immediately represents its value.

What this revolutionary architecture does is simple: It provides both exceptional processing power and great battery life. It does this by using four powerful CPU cores to handle demanding tasks, such as gaming, and a fifth low-power, battery-saver core to manage less strenuous tasks – like processing e-mail or operating in standby mode.

Don’t be surprised to see it turning up more and more in devices at next week’s Mobile World Congress and beyond.
