While it may not look anything like the picture above when it arrives, the Asus Transformer 2 has been rumored to be rocking the world’s first NVIDIA Kal-El “Tegra 3” quad-core processor when it arrives this fall.  We were originally expecting to see tablets with this new chipset this summer, but due to delays, it could be another month or two. As one of the top selling Android tablets in the world, we’re excited that Asus could be the first, but what we really care about is if this new quad-core chip can live up to its minimal power consumption reputation.  According to NVIDIA CEO Jen Hsun Huang, the Kal-El could consume less power than its predecessor, the Tegra 2.  Leave it up to chip manufacturers to give us extended battery life, since the battery gurus on the planet are still stuck in 1980 with their tech.

Exciting, to say the least.  Original Transformer owners, are you all-in on Asus as being worthy of having the Kal-El?
