It’s being rumored that ASUS, which is just about to take a major plunge into the tablet market, plans to manufacture a tablet sporting the exceptionally high-powered Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core chipset.
According to a leaked Nvidia Tegra roadmap, the Tegra 3 is planned for release sometime during fall of this year, and will feature an A9 quad-cortex, 3x faster graphics 1.5 GHz speeds, and support 1920 x 1200 displays.
The rumor of ASUS’ plans for a Tegra 3 tablet or tablets are somewhat unsubstantiated, coming as only a brief mention and attributed to an unspecified DigiTimes’ source.
Closer and more definitively on the horizon are a couple of tablets that ASUS announced back at CES, the Eee Pad Slider and MeMO, which should be available either this spring or summer.
ASUS has also recently launched the limitedly available Eee Pad Transformer in the U.S. and abroad. TabletPCReview has been poring over the tablet, and will have a full review on the Transformer early next week.
