First Nvidia Tegra 3 Device May Launch November 9

While we already know that Nvidia's Tegra 3 quad-core SoC (aka Kal-El) will arrive in the 10-inch Asus Eee Pad Transformer 2 (Prime) tablet, Asus CEO Jonney Shih said that both the tablet and the highly-anticipated superpowered-chip will arrive on November 9.

Nvidia's Tegra 3 was previously reported to arrive by the end of summer or early September, but the company delayed its release due to a need for an increased validation timeframe. "It took a little more time than we thought to get the software optimized for the hardware,” a Nvidia spokesperson told EE Times. "We are on schedule."

Recent reports claim that the Transformer 2's quad-core Tegra 3 chip will clock at 1.3 GHz per core. It will also feature either 16 GB ($499) or 32 GB ($599) of internal storage, depending on your wallet. Other features will include Google 4.0 "Ice Cream Sandwich" as the gadget's OS, a microSD card slot for up to 32 GB of extra storage, a USB port, a mini-HDMI port, a 14.5-hour battery, a rear-facing camera with an LED flash -- all packed within a 8.3-mm frame.

    It won't be launched on November 9th. It's going to be announced. Way to makeup a news story to get hits. Every news site is going to be eating their damn lunch when they realize that they can misinterpret the words and get everything wrong.

    I'll be surprised if this hits the shelves before January....That's a bit more realistic.
