Nvidia seems on to a winner with its Tegra line of processors, it’s being used to power the world’s first dual-core smartphones and will be included in a lot of Android smartphone and tablet devices we expect to see this year.

Over the weekend, TechEye was sent Nvidia’s presentation slides that were going to be used on-stage at February’s Mobile World Congress. One of the slides highlighted a new release from the company – its new Tegra 2 3D processor, a chip we can expect to see powering many 3D-capable devices in 2011.

The Tegra 2 3D is slightly more powerful than its predecessor, it will be based on a Dual Cortex A9 clocked to 1.2GHz, will offer 5520 MIPS and is expected to go into production with the next two months.

Expect more information and a list of manufacturers who are signing on to include this processor to become available within the next month or so, Mobile World Congress is only but a month away. We will be there, bringing you all the mobile-related devices we can get our hands on.
