Android tablets are getting faster and faster, thanks to the latest chips from NVIDIA, Samsung, Qualcomm, and Intel. But even the fastest ARM-based chips still only offer a fraction of the performance you’d expect from an Intel Core processor (their key advantages are that ARM-based chips use less power and cost less).

So even though you don’t need something as fast as an Intel Ivy Bridge processor to run Android games or other apps, it’s kind of fun to see what happens when you do… and that’s exactly what Mobile Geeks did when they got a chance to check out an Android tablet prototype with an Ivy Bridge CPU.

Here’s a roundup of tech news from around the web.
