Tegra 2.5?

Things move so fast in the world of technology, that it’s sometimes hard to keep up. Tech lovers who always want to rock the latest and greatest hardware have a tough time. We haven’t even gotten used to the awesomeness of the 1GHz dual-core Tegra 2 SoC yet, when we learn that 1.2GHz Tegra 2 chips with dual cores and support for 3D displays are just around the corner.

The next Tegra 2 CPUs, Tegra 2.5 if you will, are going to be marketed as 3D-capable mobile processors. Apparently, the T25 silicon will be mass produced in Q1 2011, and will be available this spring.

Some users don’t see the point in having a mobile device with a glasses-free 3D display, but two CPU cores working 200MHz faster is a nice improvement nonetheless. We’ll likely hear a lot more about the new Tegra 2 chip in the weeks to come, and during MWC February 14-17.
