Nvidia Tegra 3 – Ninja Core demo , Wins LINLEY Group award

Most of us by now would be knowing that Nvidia Tegra 3 is a SOC with quadcore CPU, but Nvidia has a smart trick inside Tegra3 which is a fifth core called companion core which is a low power core and is used to unburden the load from the other cores. 
The companion core kicks in for low power tasks such as browsing, photo viewing, video playback and shuts down the other cores to save battery and during complex tasks such as gaming the other 4 cores becomes live and provides a peak performance.
This smart new design has won Tegra 3 – LINLEY GROUP’s  ANALYST CHOICE AWARD, a semiconductor research firm.
Demo of Nvidia’s companion core, the Ninja core in Tegra 3 is shown below
