Nvidia Tegra 3 unveiled as first quad-core smartphone CPU

World's first smartphone quad-core processor unveiled with the Nvidia Tegrea 3 CPU tipped to land in the recently leaked HTC Edge

Chipset manufacturer Nvidia has officially unveiled its next generation on mobile device processors with the much mooted Tegra 3 chip outed as a quad-core smartphone and tablet CPU.

Leaked yesterday as the chip that will power the world's first quad-core smartphone, the HTC Edge, Nvidia's now official 1.3GHz quad-core Tegra 3 chip improves on its predecessor the Tegra 2 on all fronts with faster processing, graphics, memory bandwidth, video and audio support all touted.

"Our next-generation Tegra processor is widely known as the world's first quad-core mobile chip," Nvidia's Senior Product Manager Matt Wuebbling said.

HTC Edge Specs

Touted as the first smartphone that will feature the Tegra 3 CPU, the HTC Edge leaked yesterday as a true powerhouse of the mobile market with the likely inclusion of Google's Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS to be joined by 1GB of RAM.

On the handset's entertaining areas of the specs sheet, an 8-megapixel rear-mounted camera with LED flash and 1080p Full HD video recording capabilities will land alongside a 4.7-inch HD display.

HTC Edge Release Date

With the Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core processor now official in the public domain it is expected the first smartphones to tout the chip will follow in the coming months. Whilst official word has yet to be received it is widely expected that the HTC Edge release and formal unveiling will coincide with Mobile World Congress 2012 which is set to be held between February 27th and March 1st of next year.
