It was only this decade that a dual-core processor for mobile devices was introduced to the world. NVIDIA grabbed the first place to release the world’s first mobile dual-core processor – the NVIDIA Tegra 2. Tegra 2 is based on a dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 CPU. The two cores which are clocked at 1 GHz each brings extreme multitasking, faster response time, and better mobile web experience with up to two times faster browsing. Utilizing the low-power 40-nanometer process, NVIDIA Tegra 2 was designed to consume less power from a battery.
Featured with an ultra-low power (ULP) NVIDIA GeForce GPU, this dual-core processor presents console-quality gaming on a mobile device. Designed for low-power applications, the ultra-low power GeForce GPU delivers outstanding mobile 3D game playability and highly-responsive 3D user interface.
NVIDIA Tegra 2 also has video playback support for full HD up to 1080p which let you watch 1080p HD movies from your mobile device on your HDTV without compromising battery life.
