NVIDIA TEGRA 3 MOBILE PROCESSORS
The world's first mobile super processors, NVIDIA® Tegra® 3 quad-core processors deliver unprecedented performance in a wide range of mobile devices.
Take your mobile performance farther with NVIDIA Tegra processors in all your mobile devices. Extreme multitasking. Ultra-smooth web browsing that’s up to twice as fast as other processors. Console-quality gaming and the best battery-saving technology you’ll find anywhere. Even HD video capabilities for brilliant graphics on the go.
- Quad-Core with a 5th Battery-Saver Core** - NVIDIA's innovative Variable SMP architecture (PDF 919 KB) enables four performance cores to be used for max burst, when needed, with each core independently and automatically enabled and disabled based on workload. The single battery-saver core (or companion core) handles low-power tasks like active standby, music, and video, and is transparent to the OS and applications.
- NVIDIA DirectTouch™* - This is a patent-pending architecture that improves touch responsiveness and reduces power consumption by offloading a portion of the touch processing onto the Tegra 3 processor.
- 3D Stereo Gaming* - This capability leverages the award-winning NVIDIA 3D Vision® technology to automatically, and in real-time, convert OpenGL based games and apps into Stereo 3D.
- NVIDIA PRISM Display Technology* - PRISM (or Pixel Rendering Intensity and Saturation Management) reduces a mobile device’s backlight power while simultaneously enhancing the pixel color to deliver the same visual quality with substantially extended battery life.
