The new performance chip will also feature 12 GeForce cores.

Looking at the innovations displayed at the Mobile World Congress for tablets, Apple surely has kick started a storm with the iPad.

Yesterday at the MWC event, nVidia showcased a beast called KAL-EL, a quad-core processor that is capable of insane amount of speeds on a tablet. The chip was shown browsing the web, running games and streaming 1440p video content running on a 2560×1600 panel. nVidia says the chip will enable mobile devices to output to the highest resolution monitors or tablets equipped with a 10.1-inch display with 300 DPI.

And if that was not enough, the KAL-EL processor contains a new 12 core GeForce GPU. Not sure if we have stilled figured out what we could with even four of them.

nVidia says the customers are already getting samples the chip, and plans to swing in the production in August.

The company also revealed their roadmap till 2014 which includes projects codenamed Wayne, Logan and Stark, with the latter one being to doll out upto 75 times faster over Tegra 2. nVidia is ensured by it’s customers that they will be able utilize such speeds quite easily.

The future certainly looks exciting.
