Nvidia Tegra 3 (T33) 

Released April, 2012
  • 1.6 GHz
  • Quad core

The Nvidia Tegra 3 (T33) is a SoC (System on a Chip) processor used in mobile phones or tablets, with the interesting codename of “Kal-El”. The T33 is a quad core processor, sporting four ARM Cortex-A9 MPCore, each clocked at 1.6GHz. The curious thing about the T33, however, is that it is equipped with a fifth “companion”, as they call it core. The companion core is clocked at 500MHz and its purpose is to replace the main cores when the device is underutilised, like when it is in standby, playing music or videos. The GPU integrated in the T33 is a GeForce ULP, clocked at 520MHz with 12 shader units. In overall this processor provides for long battery life, while not sacrificing performance.
