The Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core processor powers the original Nexus 7, which has received generally positive reviews for its smooth performance -- although some reviewers have griped about the 1.3-GHz Tegra 3 chip's execution when running graphics-intensive games. The Tegra 3 might get the heave-ho, with the new Nexus 7 switching to a quad-core solution from Qualcomm. The alleged reason: Nvidia's inability to deliver an LTE-enabled chipset in time for the Nexus 7 refresh, according to Digitimes' supply-chain sources. Because Qualcomm processors already power a number of Android tablets, including the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 and Tab 2 (10.1) LTE, and the Sony Xperia Tablet Z, this rumor sounds credible.
