Qualcomm might have announced its manufacturers partners wil be launching quad-core Snapdragon devices at the start of 2012, but NVIDIA has trumped the folks in San Diego by saying they not only have a working prototype already, but that we’ll see the first commercial tablets in August and the first phones before the end of the year.

Those partners included Dell, Motorola, Acer, Toshiba and Asus.

On show at the company’s booth at Mobile World Congress, NVIDIA has shown off a quad-core tablet prototype that runs 1440P video content running on a 2560×1600 panel, as well as a modified PS3 game with over 300 characters battling it out on screen at the same time.

The screen is like having the iPhone’s retina display at 10.1 inches rather than just 3.5 inches.

“That will enable mobile devices to output to the highest resolution monitors or tablets equipped with a 10.1-inch display with 300 DPI,” says Mike Rayfield, the company’s general manager for the mobile business and Tegra.

Code Names

Codenamed Kal-El (Superman’s real name for those thinking it sound familiar) the new processor will be the start of the next evolution of Tegra chips that include Wayne, Logan, and Stark.

The superhero codenames will be coming out in a steady 1-year cadence over the next 3 years.
