We were blown away by the first demo of NVIDIA’s Quad Core Platform codenamed Kal-El a few months ago. It promises a humungous amount of processing power to mobile devices and is seemingly only on couple of months away from getting in our hands. If you have not already got the original Eee Pad Transformer TF101, you might want to hold that purchase for a couple of months and wait for the quad core version to come out.
We have already seen the kind of performance existing dual core chips on the market deliver. We can only begin to imagine what new avenues this new platform open. Looks like extremely high resolutions and vastly improved multitasking is only the tip of the iceberg. Also, this ought to make a very nice gaming device, something that these tablets seem to be excelling at. With the release of the iPad 3, which we also suspect will feature a quad core cpu, and the Transformer, expect many other tablets to follow suit and adopt this platform. Oh, and that’s not all. You’re probably going to see next generation smartphones featuring these processors by the summer of 2012(drool).That said, do not expect these devices to replace your desktop anytime soon.
