The specs on this chip are awesome, I may be looking for this chip in my next phone. the article has all the specs for us nerdy types.
At a press conference in Las Vegas, Nvidia today announced an update to its highly successful Tegra K1 mobile processor. The X1 combines a 64-bit ARM_based processor with a graphics chip based on the company’s Maxwell architecture. The K1 used Nvidia’s older Kepler GPU technology. The X1 will feature a 256-core Maxwell GPU and an eight-core 64bit CPU. That, the company says, makes it the first teraflop mobile processor.
The original Tegra K1, Nvidia noted, was the first mobile processor that brought together a strong mobile CPU with a very powerful GPU. Bringing Kepler to the K1 took Nvidia two years.
Nvidia unveiled the original K1 exactly a year ago at CES. It has since found a home in a number of products, including a number of Chromebooks from manufacturers like Acer and HP. Nvidia’s own Shield tablet and Google’s Nexus 9 also used the chip.
