Remember the original Eee Pad Transformer? You know, the one we really liked. Well it looks like the tablet is set for a quad-core Tegra 3 powered sequel.

Chairman Jonney Shih went ahead and confirmed the new tablet, following a mention to Forbes that it was in the works.

As of now rumours point to Kal-El support, meaning the latest in Nvidia's powerful mobile chip capable of some lush graphics - as seen in this demo video released a few months back. 

There is little solid fact to go on in terms of hardware as of yet. The original Eee Pad Transformer is still a tempting offer however, with a powerful dual-core Tegra 2 chip and solid IPS display. Don't forget as well that at £420 you get a tablet and keyboard dock, meaning a wholly decent laptop alternative. 

Expect more on the Transformer 2 as the rumour mill begins to spin.
