Remember that rather large shipment of NVIDIA Tegra 2 chips Samsung ordered up at the tail end of last year? Looks like they weren’t intended solely for the new Samsung Galaxy 10.1 after the reveal that the Galaxy S II would use Samsung’s own dual-core chip. Another report hinted we might see the device, but now some benchmarking data has surfaced showing the Samsung GT-I9103 with an NVIDIA chip inside.

The Samsung Galaxy S II has the model number GT-I9100, so chances are this will be some variant of that device. Maybe one headed to the US? Why the switch in CPU is a question that will have to be asked at a later date. While their at it, how about they get cracking at some quad-core action.
