New Nvidia Tegra 2 3D: MWC 2011 & spring release

We’ve been bringing you all the news about the new dual-core devices running on the Nvidia Tegra 2 chip, such as the LG Optimus 2X smartphone and the Motorola Xoom tablet. Then a few days ago we reported on rumors of a Tegra 3 chip, to possibly be revealed at the upcoming Mobile World Congress 2011 next month.

Today we’ve also heard abut the Tegra 2 3D chip, as David Murphy over on PC Mag, sourced from TechEye reports on a leaked slideshow screenshot showing a new Tegra 2. This new processor is set to be revealed at MWC and apparently there will be two versions of it. The first is an AP25 which will be used for mobiles and the second will be for tablets, the T25. The leaked info shows an expected release date of Spring 2011.

There are suggestions that one of the first devices to use the Tegra 2 3D chip will be the LG G-Slate. Only yesterday we reported on the G-Slate and the fact that leaked images seemed to suggest 3D support, so this speculation certainly fits. PC Mag also reports on rumors of the Tegra 3’s debut also at MWC as we earlier reported, so it certainly looks as though this could be happening too.

Another report on Gizmo Crave about the Tegra 2 3D chip says that the leaked slide screenshot shows that the Tegra 2 3D clocks at 1.2 GHz based on a Dual Cortex A9. It adds that it could actually be packing enough punch for a Master Image TN-LCD display. What are your thoughts on Nvidia’s Tegra 2 3D chips and also the Tegra 3? Let us know with your comments.
