Oh this thing is going to be amazing. I hope someone takes this and builds a gaming device. NVIDIA Tegra 3 + LTE. You could have a dock with a big screen and play games on it. I wish the Sony Xperia ion had this setup.

From my understanding Tegra 3 is not that impressive of chip, Qualcomm and TI are showing off dual core chips that spank quad core Tegra 3 in almost every category. I could be getting confused because I am at work and won't do any extensive fact checking, but this is what I remember being shown over the last few weeks from ARM chip makers on other websites like anandtech, the verge, etc

They are beating the A9 quad core in benchmark tests. I have not seen them go up against the Tegra 3. I have heard that the GPU leaves something to be desired on the Tegra 3 which surprises me because it's NVIDIA...

You are right about the A9 quad cores and those processors being compared to them, is Tegra 3 A15? I knew the GPU would leave something to be desired compared to competition and to me GPU plus power efficiency is more important than CPU performance and other metrics. I would give up some performance of the total package to a certain degree (it obviously still has to be capable, otherwise who cares how long it lasts) for better battery life on mobile devices.

Pretty sure terga3 is based on A9...

You are correct, it is A9 based. The thing about the performance tests though, is that the Tegra 3 is available now. They are already working on a mid cycle replacement which will also spank the current Tegra 3 in performance. Not to mention, they have not released their smartphone chip yet (the AP30). The T30 Tegra 3 is for tablets.

 

Although, I would expect the OMAP TI chips to be all the rage this year because ICS is optimized for them. The theme has been whatever processor is in the Nexus is the hot processor for that year. See snapdragon and exynos (hummingbird). The interesting thing is that TI has been rumored to be trying to sell their OMAP division and this could really bring the value up.
