Tegra 3 that is
It was supposed to show its face in August, but now it is crystal clear that Kal El has been slightly delayed for at least month or a bit more.

We got a confirmation from a multiple sources that first tablet based on a new quad core 40nm Tegra chip, codenamed Kal El is going to show its face inside of the Asus Transformer 2 tablet.

Asus transformer based on Tegra 2 was quite popular device as many users really liked the combination of a keyboard dock with an extra battery and a thin Tegra 2 tablet.

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. This is a huge step forward for Nvidia and Jensen also said that there are many companies who are currently working on Kal El designs.

There will be many tablets and at later date, most likely in Q1 2012, we will see phones based on quad core Kal El. According to Nvidia's Tegra roadmap, Kal El should have better computational power than Core 2 Duo.
