NVIDIA's forays into the mobile computing world have been very, very successful. They started with the original Tegra processor, which didn't really have much of an impact in the consumer market. However, the Tegra 2 does, and it is fast.
Now, NVIDIA has unveiled some more information about when the next iteration, Kal-El, will be released to the world. Kal-El tablets will start to be released this fall, while phones with the processor will follow in early 2012.
In case you've forgotten how incredible Kal-El is, allow me to remind you just how big of a deal it is. Unlike the Tegra 2, which is a simple dual-core processor, Kal-El is a quad-core, and the world's first mobile quad, to boot. And as you can tell by the picture above, it promises to be 5x as fast as the Tegra 2.
Hopefully, since the Tegra line of processors is ARM-based, we will see this beast power some Windows 8 MIDs and tablets when Microsoft releases it sometime next year.[AndroidCentral]
