Nvidia debuts Tegra K1 mobile gaming superchip at CES
LAS VEGAS — Nvidia introduced its next-generation mobile processor, Tegra K1, at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. The 192-core super chip, built on Kepler architecture, brings “the heart of GeForce and the soul of Tesla to mobile computing,” said Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang at the company's press event on Sunday. http://blogs.nvidia.com/blog/2014/01/05/nvidia-rips-the-lid-off-tegra-k1-demos-64-bit-mobile-processor-running-android/
The Tegra K1 comes in two versions: a 32-bit, quad core 4-Plus-1 ARM Cortex A15 CPU, slated to go into production in the first half of 2014, and a 64-bit version built on dual Denver CPUs to be available in the latter half of 2014. The 64-bit Tegra is designed for “high performance single threaded and very high performance multithreaded processes,” Huang said.
At the most basic level, Tegra (and a combination of other Nvidia products such as Shield, which allows for ultra-high quality game streaming) enables console and computer games to be played on a mobile platform without quality degradation. Tegra K1 is the first mobile processor to deliver the same graphics features as consoles such as the Xbox and PlayStation, but with faster performance.
