While limited details have been revealed about the upcoming ASUS Eee Pad Transformer 2, new reports all but confirm that the tablet will come equipped with NVIDIA’s next generation quad-core chip. 

ASUSThe Kal-El system on a chip, which may be named the “Tegra 3“, is said to offer four cores, 1.5GHz speeds and support for 1920 x 1200 displays. The chipset was rumored to debut in August, though the Transformer 2 is set for an October release. 

If the rumors hold true, the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer 2 will be the first tablet to sport the quad-core Kal El, bringing the slate a much improved battery life and superior performance compared to the dual-core Tegra 2 chip found in current Honeycomb tablets. If the tablet actually packs the processor, it would lend credence to Jonney Shih’s, ASUS’s chairman, claim that the Transformer 2 will be “impressive.”
