The Need for Multiprocessing Mobile devices perform a wide variety of tasks such as Web browsing, video playback, mobile gaming, SMS text messaging, and location-based services. Due to the growth in the availability of high speed mobile and Wi-Fi networks, mobile devices will also be used for various performance-intensive tasks that were previously handled by traditional PCs....NVIDIA Tegra is the only mobile processer that not only has a dual core SMP capable CPU but also a console class Ultra Low Power (ULP) GeForce™ GPU. The architecture of the GPU in the Tegra processor is similar to that of desktop GeForce GPUs and therefore games that were originally developed for SMP-capable desktop CPUs and desktop GPU architectures can be easily ported to run on NVIDIA Tegra and will deliver the best gameplay experience on Tegra based mobile devices. Table 1 shows some of the popular game engines and the number of threads used by each engine.
