A Sneak Peak at Nvidia’s Tegra 2 3D Processor

It would seep out this weekend, a slideshow screenshot featuring scraps of an innovative Tegra 2 processor from Nvidia. The company is supposedly place to reveal its Tegra 2 3D processor at this year’s Mobile World Congress in the middle of February.

Two versions of the processor are in the works: An AP25 edition for mobile phones and a T25 for tablets. Both will ratchet up Tegra 2’s dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor to 1.2 GHz rather than the familiar one GHz for Tegra 250-series CPUs. Nvidia anticipates that its processor will be competent to strike 5,520 MIPS—million instructions per second, namely, according to the leaked slides. That is the entire of 520 MIPS over the one-gigahertz Tegra 2 chip.

There is no sign as to which forthcoming gadgets will benefit from the Tegra 2 3D, just a message that the chips will be incoming in spring of 2011. Several have nonetheless recommended that G-Slate of LG might be one of the initial products to utilize a Tegra 2 3D chip. Specifically, if the tablet is certainly going for three-dimensional support as images of the gadget’s back have recommended, it’s suspected two-camera system may possibly be utilized to record stereoscopic images and video.

Given that the G-Slate is projected to opening right about no different time as presentations of Tegra 2 3D—and that the G-Slate has been extensively anticipated to utilize a Tegra 2 chip up in anticipation of this point, it stands to cause that the tablet may possibly certainly be the initial out the entrance with Nvidia’s innovative chip.

Certainly, that is not the merely reports that may perhaps be incoming at this year’s Mobile World Congress.  Charlie White of Mashable is forecasting that Tegra 3 itself is going to acquire the large debut. His foundation this estimate on a passage from Mike Rayfield of Nvidia’s general manager of Tegra, in a dialogue with Hexus:

Rayfield said, “I’m going to move toward pretty close to my rhythm of an open each year. It will be in production about very similar time as my rival initial dual-cores will.”

Because Tegra 2 debuted just about this similar time frame at previous year’s Consumer Electronics Show,informations are predicting a the same debut for Tegra 3 this coming February 2011.
