NVIDIA Tegra K1 Processor


The Tegra K1 is the fifth generation mobile processor from NVIDIA featuring 192-core GPU based on kepler architecture which was originally designed for desktops and notebooks and later added to supercomputers. It offers better graphics than the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. “It’s simply inappropriate to call it Tegra 5, it’s simply not linear. We’ve brought the heart of GeForce and the soul of Tesla to mobile computing,” NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun said in the press conference. The Tegra K1 comes in two different variants – 32-bit and 64-bit versions. The 32-bit version is powered by a 2.3GHz quad-core 4-Plus-1 ARM Cortex A15 CPU and will feature in devices during the first half 2014. The 64-bit version is powered by a customized 2.5GHz dual-core CPU based on the ARMv8 architecture and will arrive in devices during the second half of 2014. The first 64-bit Tegra K1 processor will be available on the devices by the end of Q3 2014. Stay tuned for more updates.
