NVIDIA Tegra 3 Chomps Through Ice Cream Sandwich on Asus Transformer Prime [Video]

If you weren't already excited about the upcoming release of Google's Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) platform or the Eee Pad Transformer Prime tablet from Asus, you will be after watching a video of the two working together with NVIDIA's Tegra 3 quad-core processor. This is the kind of technology threesome that should appeal to anywhere, regardless of which way you swing (yes, we're looking at you, diehard iOS fans).


"Google has done a great job on ICS and has made the platform open to the ecosystem and easy to develop on. Thanks to Google’s developer support, NVIDIA’s experienced software team was able to work with Asus to quickly bring up Android 4.0 ICS on the Transformer Prime," NVIDIA said in a blog post.


NVIDIA says the embedded video above was recorded on November 16, just two days after the source code for ICS was made publicly available. Even though it's only an early demo, you can already see Ice Cream Sandwich dripping with all kinds of rad, from silky smooth transitions to impeccable 1080p playback performance, and even a quick look at fully optimized gaming that taps into all four cores of NVIDIA's Tegra 3 processor.

In addition to the Tegra 3 chip and Android 4.0 software, the Transformer Prime also features a 10.1-inch WXGA IPS+ capacitive touchscreen display, 1GB of DDR2 memory, 32GB/64GB eMMC flash memory, 8MP rear-facing camera, 1.2MP front-facing camera, micro HDMI port, microSD card slot, and various other odds and ends.

wow, with that processor and that software, i have a feeling that the prime will be the tablet to beat. I cant wait to see the bench marks on it. The galaxy nexus had awesome bench marks on a dual core, they should be really awesome for the prime.

Drool......I wonder if this will be one of the $299 tegra 3 tablets in a few quarters. Can't wait to get ics on my phone, exciting stuff! I really hope ASUS will offer a windows 8 version of this tablet as well.

That is Hot hot hot hot hot. I think ASUS really whips Apple when it comes to developing and combining solutions into really sweet products. I agree LLeCompte no doubt this will become the tablet to beat.

Both the ASUS Transformer Prime and Ice Cream Sandwhich is awesome but combine them it becomes even more awesome then anybody ever imagined... I didn't know that Ice Cream Sandwhich could look so slick and we finally got to see the Terga 3 in action, so there's that...

The Transformer Prime Tablet may be the one that changes everybodies perspective on what a tablet can be.

I'd like to see this compared to the new Lenovo Tegra 3 Tablet coming out with it's 2GBs of DDR3 compared the Asus' 1GB of DDR2. I'm really curious to see if it makes much of a differense.
