First Kal El is Asus Transformer 2

Written by Fuad Abazovic
tegra

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.

What a twat. Intel Core i7-2600K draws lees power than AMD Phenom II X6 1100T. :D Time to believe that.

Of course i7-2600k draws less power its 4 cores @ 32 nm while Phenom IIx6 is 6 cores @ 45 nm, go learns some facts, and no one cares about hardwarecanucks .

I think u forgot that 2600K is Quad core n 1100T is Hexa Core.. :)

Herp derp? It's obvious A9 4 cores draws less power than A9 2 cores.

Hey can get some Fscking moderation around here? This is getting pretty ridiculous watching these comments degenerate into flame wars everyday. Fanbois on either side making this website and its users look pathetic and immature. Plus the homophobic slurs being tossed about with abandon should warrant a damn warning shouldn't it? They would if it was a racial slur.

Phenom II X6 @ 45nm sucking more power than 2600K @ 32nm, damn, I couldn't figure that out! :D

"Kal El should have better computational power than Core 2 Duo".
This means a smartphone could be built which has a "laptop replacement" built-in!. With a docking station, it will function like a desktop with external graphics (PCie1x)m disk and network connection. Undocked will be a phone with wireless cloud and mobile services.

Hell no, ARM is very efficient, but still not able to reach the computing power of an out or order Wide Execution Front like the Core 2 Duo, may be he's referring to a Core 2 Duo at 900MHz perhaps.
