We have known about this powerful processor chip for some time now, but yesterday Nvidia made it official.Â The system on a chip features 4 Cortex A9 cores, and can play HD videos at 1080P and process demanding 3D graphics without breaking a sweat.
Nvidia claims the new chip will even outperform an Intel Atom, as can be seen on this chart below.
Tegra 2 will be made with a more advanced 40-nanometer process than its predecessor which was sized at 65-nanometer. The chip is showing up in many tablet and slate devices, and appears to be aimed directly at taking on the desktop processors in these niches.
