More technical details of Nvidia's new SoC, Kal-El

Postby Johnmcl7 » 20 Sep 2011, 17:50

Anandtech have a brief news article up on Kal-El which is Nvidia's follow up to the current Tegra 2 platform: ... anion-core

The main point of interest is the addition of a fifth Cortex A9 on top of the expected four Cortex A9 to lower power consumption by switching back and forth as performance demands it. I assume the reason they've used a Cortex A9 for the lower powered core is to prevent potential compatibility issues that would occur if switching between different processor technologies.
