The Tegra 3 Is Naked

While we're all waiting to play with tablets running on NVIDIA's smokey quad-core (plus one) wonder, Wireless Goodness got its mitts on photos of the chip in the flesh.

It looks pretty much like any other chip, sure -- but pause for a minute and consider just how much is lying underneath there: four graphics-socking cores plus a slower, secret core for menial tasks. You'll never see it, sealed up inside your next tablet (maybe), but don't take for granted much we can put on silicon these days.
