[citation][nom]falchard[/nom]Still sucks compared to AMD Fusion platform.[/citation]

that's like comparing apples to oranges. These are SoC's we are dealing with with extremely low power profiles, AMD fusion is desktop and notebook CPU's/APU's that consume high amounts of power.

2010-tegra with one core
2011- tegra with two cores+tegra with 4 cores
2012- tegra with...(8?) cores.
2015- tegra with 64 cores! Wooo! exciting future!

[citation][nom]tului[/nom]The "Snapdragon" story URL links back to this page. Not wherever it was supposed to go.[/citation]
Fixed!

Very good energy-saving idea by Nvidia. Even gamers don't need ultimate energy monsters all the time. Now I wonder how long it will take for people to start asking if it runs Crysis 2 at full.

Anyone else see the term "Console Class Gaming". If you're trying to promote high-end gaming you should call it "PC Enthusiast Gaming".

Console class is a bad thing. 30FPS at sub HD resolutions.

[citation][nom]verdantchile[/nom]Tegra 3 (Transformer TF201) doesn't really come near the iPad 2's graphics performance, but nVidia achieved their goal of 2+ times the performance of Tegra 2.http://glbenchmark.com/result.jsp? [...] op&oldal=0[/citation]
How do you know if it's come near the iPad2 performance if the chip isn't even out yet? There isn't even an tegra3 powered device on the list you mentioned.

Since when was the iPad 2 1280x720? Here's the Tegra 2 Vs iPad2 from the same site.

Notice how the Tegra2 outshines the iPad2 in most tests... strange.

Check out GL1.1 this was before this site sold out to the Ipad and optimized their code to run on Steve's cool-aid

This might not be a bad idea for desktop / laptop systems. A special core dedicated just for processing background / low overhead tasks with the beefy cores being used on-demand.

Four monster cores to heavy workloads, and a small, low-power core to handle the system while idle? But...

I thought of that last year...

Why??? Why didn't I patent it!! Why.......

geez, nvidia fanboys are doing everything to defend the tegra. I guess I'd better join in.

Kal-El is 1337 rape arse performance. stfu haters. I've never seen a benchmark on it, but nvidia's marketing makes it sweet enough, so i know it's good!
