NVIDIA shows off the power of quad-core Kal-El in 4 minutes of video glory

It’s certainly no secret here at Android and Me that we love the advancements NVIDIA has made with their Tegra line of processors. Earlier this year, NVIDIA’s dual-core Tegra 2 chipset hit the market in a slew of phones, with several more on the way in 2011.

But that’s old news. A few months ago, NVIDIA unleashed Project Kal-El, the world’s first quad-core mobile chipset, which goes along nicely with a 12-core GPU with 3D stereo support. Today, NVIDIA is showing off just how powerful Kal-El is with a new demo video. I’ll let the video speak for itself, but keep in mind as you’re watching that this is pre-production silicon and the final chipsets will be 25% faster.

Though it took the Tegra 2 a while to get from announcement phase to first appearing in mobile phones and tablets, we may not be waiting too much longer for Kal-El devices. The folks at NVIDIA are hard at work on bringing you Kal-El goodness, with the first tablet devices slated to release around August and the first phones dropping around Christmas (Nexus 3, anyone?).

So, what did you guys think of the video? Excited for Kal-El to drop? Think they’ll actually make good on the timelines? Sound off in the comments.
