With the announcement of Tegra 3 chipsets, Nvidia has set all new performance standards for mobile devices as Tegra 3 delivers three times the graphics performance and 61 percent lower power consumption than its predecessor, Tegra 2 chipset. Nvidia has introduced a new technology called vSMP which uses a fifth CPU Core working at lower frequencies for lower battery consumption when its handling non-demanding tasks. Smartphones using Tegra 3 chipsets will be able to run games with console-like graphics. ASUS had already announced Eee Pad Transformer Prime tablet which will be using super Tegra 3 Soc and will be available in market probably in December 2011.

    • New patent-pending vSMP technology, including a fifth CPU core that runs at a lower frequency and operates at exceptionally low power
    • 12-core GeForce GPU, with 3x the graphics performance of the Tegra 2 processor, including support for stereoscopic 3D
    • New video engines with support for 1080p high profile video at 40 Mbps
    • Up to 3x higher memory bandwidth
    • Up to 2x faster Image Signal Processor
