Nvidia’s Kal-El Tegra 3 processor and its “Companion” core (or the “Ninja Core”) on Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime.
Not long ago, when Tegra 2 and dual-core processors were being discussed, they were assumed to be power hungry, not useful for mobile devices, and Nvidia proved that as untrue, after the launch of its Tegra 2 platform.
And now, the Kal-El processor implements NVIDIA’s new Variable Symmetric Multiprocessing (vSMP) technology, which includes a fifth processor core or the “Companion” core. That core is built using a special low power silicon process that executes tasks at low frequency, while the four main quad cores are built in a standard silicon process to reach higher frequencies and consume less power than previous dual core processors. All five cores are identical ARM Cortex A9 processors, individually enabled and disabled based on the work load, via aggressive power gating.

The advanced power management features of the Tegra 3, allows the Transformer Prime to be productive up to 12 hours and when combined with the mobile dock up to 18 hours.

It has a 10.1-inch (1280×800) Super IPS+ multi-touch (10 finger support) display with 178° wide viewing angle, protected by Corning Gorilla Glass and the new ASUS technology, which enhances the brightness of the screen for a better outdoor reading.
