NVIDIA CEO Confirms Mobile Roadmap: Kal-El, Wayne, Logan and Stark

Chip maker Nvidia has started to gain market share on the mobile market, and it seems that the company wants an even bigger chunk of it, and that it might also have the means to get it. 

Previous rumors suggested that the company was working on new mobile application processors to address the various segments of the mobile market, along with the various needs that users have, and all have been just confirmed, right from the horse's mouth. 

Mr. Jen-Hsun Huang, NVIDIA CEO, has spilled the beans on the company's plans for the mobile market, confirming that the company already has a well-established Tegra roadmap. 

For those out of the loop, we should note that Tegra includes Nvidia's family of mobile application processors, and that it became highly popular due to the Tegra 2 chipset, currently packed in a wide range of Android smartphones and tablet PCs (especially tablets). 

Nvidia's Tegra series has just been expanded with a four-core chip, called Tegra 3 and codenamed Kal-El, which was included in the newly showcased ASUS Transformer Prime. 

Kal-El is only one of the new mobile CPUs the company has in store for users, and the future should bring along Wayne, Logan and Stark, all powerful application processors for the mobile market. 

“We'd like to have a processor every year, and so we're building three in a row,” Jen-Hsun Huang also stated. 

Tegra 3 is the first quad-core ARM processor unveiled to the world, the same as Tegra 2 was the first dual-core, it seems. 

Nvidia already invested billions in the development of Tegra, and will continue the work on its development, so as to gain more market share in the mobile segment. 

Also, the company plans launching high-performance ARM cores in the Tegra family starting with Stark, pairing ARM cores with GPU cores for the delivery of increased raw power.
