If you’ve considered an Android tablet recently, there’s a good chance that it was powered by a Tegra 2 processor. Most of the tablets on the market using (relatively) stock versions of Honeycomb are powered by it, with only some of the smaller tablets, like the Kindle Fire, going elsewhere.
Nvidia is not content to sit on its hands with Tegra, however. They’ve now developed a new system-on-a-chip (SoC), called Tegra 3, which will debut in Android tablets this holiday season. It will most likely become the dominant Android tablet processor – so what’s new?
