NVIDIA Tegra 3 To Be Announced at MWC 2011?

With technology moving forward as quickly as it is it’s not too far fetched to start listening to some of the rumors that surround the NVIDIA Tegra chips. We are reading reports that there’s a possibility that the NVIDIA Tegra 3 will be released at MWC 2011.

At first we thought the rumor was a little odd as did Quentyn Kennemer of Phandroid.com, especially as they have so many devices that will be running on the NVIDIA Tegra 2, but when you think more about it, there’s not really going to be anything that will overshadow it in 2012 and if they release a further advancement whilst competitors are still trying to catch up with the Tegra 2, then they will be in a very strong position.

Of course, we have already seen the Tegra 2 featuring on a host of devices such as the LG Optimus 2X, the Motorola Xoom and the Notion Ink Adam. With a Tegra 3 chip, things can only improve right?

According to androidandme.com’s Taylor Wimberly, NVIDIA announced the Tegra 2 way back in 2010 at the CES event, there was a little bit of hope that we may see it announced at this year’s conference however this didn’t happen. Wimberly goes on to mention about something said at CES 2011 by Michael Rayfield where he said that NVIDIA want to do more with less power and that when the next generation of Tegra comes out “it will do everything that Tegra 2 does and I’ll have more headroom. So I will continue to push that”. A Quad-core mobile processor was also mentioned but perhaps we are a little too early to be dreaming of that.
