1.5 GHz quad-core on a mobile device too insane? Think again.

NVIDIA’s roadmap for 2011 shows a 1.5GHz quad-core mobile processor set for a fall 2011 release.


Insane? Far from it. Welcome to 2011 folks- The year when mobile devices reign. A stance made very clear in the image below. The complete image of the slide we saw just earlier today. The post had us reeling at the thought of an upped version of the already uber-awesome Tegra 2 but NVIDIA went and came out with yet another bombshell; Quad-core mobile computing before the year is done.

NVIDIA 2011 roadmap

The image above details NVIDIA’s Tegra roadmap for 2011 which details the Tegra 2 3D processor we mentioned earlier and the insane quad-core 1.5GHz that we’re all drooling over. What’s even more intense is that the chaps over at NVIDIA seem to have been able to get Full-HD (1920×1200) resolution support on a tablet PC and supposedly 3 times better graphics processing.

This revelation is totally in keeping with NVIDIA’s claim that their Tegra 3 processor was ‘almost done’. In addition the ‘ULP CPU mode’ refers to ‘Ultra Low Power’ processing in NVIDIA-speak. Obviously the power management needed for something this power hungry to run on any mobile device.

Rumour or not, fall 2011 is set to be the best season since Chelsea won the premier league.

    Battery life? Will a device powered by something like this last more than a few minutes?
