"Nvidia’s ‘quad-ish’ core Tegra 3/Kal-el is bad idea with a worse implementation, and that is before the financials. Once you get in to that arena, things get positively ugly.
The short story is this; the CPU is under-performing badly, missed internal clock targets, and costs too much to be financially viable.
Lets start out with what Tegra 3 is, it is a quad-core A9 built on a TSMC 40nm process. We went over it a while ago, some of the details are here. The biggest thing we missed is the so called fifth core, and that is where many of the problems lie, not to mention the costs. ARM supplies the A9 core in two main versions, low power or high performance, both relatively speaking. Companies with an ARM core license can choose one or the other, but not modify the core itself.
To save power, one of the biggest problems with the current Tegra 2, there are only two paths available. The first is to make the system really efficient, and use the core as little as possible, putting it to sleep as often as possible, and waking it only when necessary. This is what Intel and AMD do, and the acronym is called HUGS, Hurry Up and Go to Sleep. It works very well, and is what Nvidia was touting as a key win for Tegra 2 on the power savings front, real world testing notwithstanding."
"you have NO idea at all what my sister looks like..."
No, but even your mom says she's a dog and she was right about you arguing like a 7-year old.
But they are both happy you found employment although they are a little embarrassed that it's as a ten cents a post shill...
Fanboi, your mom called. She said if you didn't stop arguing like a 7-year old she was going to come over and slap you.
And she said you never owned a share of stock in your life...
