Multi-core technology is hardly new especially when it comes to Intel hardware but it’s just starting to take off on the ARM side of things. I’m sure plenty of us understand how it works – split a workload across multiple processors to get work done faster and save on power consumption. The benefits? Faster web browsing and more battery life! If you need to see a demo, hit the video below which compares a standard Tegra 2 to a Tegra 2 with one core disabled and goes through a web browsing test. The demo uses Android 2.2 but we hear Honeycomb should be even more optimized for multiple cores. Something to show your grandmother, she’d love the extra 20s she can save after each web browsing session.
