We have heard from more than one source that the ASUS Transformer 2 will be the first quad-core tablet. This tablet is said to run on the first ever NVIDIA Kal-El Quad-core chipset. The Kal-El will likely be named the Tegra 3 to stay in line with NVIDIA’s other processors.
Jen Hsun Huang, Nvidia CEO said at the last conference call that despite its four cores, Kal El consumes less power than Tegra 2, and this is the case across the board in just about any work scenario.
There is also talks of the Transformer 2 coming with Ice Cream Sandwich, which means this quad-core powerhouse will be a demon from hardware to OS. We will give you more information once we can actually get our hands on one. The ASUS Transformer 2 is still slated to be released this year so keep an eye out.
