Nvidia on Wednesday launched the quad-core mobile Nvidia Tegra 3 processor. Formerly nicknamed "Project Kal-El," the Tegra 3 has four main cores and a fifth companion core. It distributes the workload among these using patent-pending variable symmetric multiprocessing technology. The Tegra 3 includes a 12-core Nvidia GeForce graphics processing unit. It's aimed at mobile gamers and provides high-speed access to the Web as well as swift application execution and multitasking.


A few problems with this

So I have a few questions as too why we need so many cores in mobile platforms. First question is where is gaming at in mobile? I have yet to see real console gaming on a mobile device. For one thing memory is another issue stopping mobile gaming. Second question how many will be willing to pay more for a multi core chip like this on a mobile phone? Third question who really multi tasks on such a small screen device? With Apple hinting that it will stop the specification wars by not including specs I think Nvidia has a uphill battle trying to prove that a lot of mobile users want so many cores.
