Nvidia first announced its Tegra K1 cell Sock back in January all over CES 2014. The same chip, after showing for the primary time within the recently announced Xiao mipad pill, has now been featured by using a Chinese web site in quite a lot of benchmarks against Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 801 Sock, and nvidia’s personal ultimate-generation Tegra four Sock
The Tegra K1’s GPU is according to nvidia’s Keller architecture, utilized in its full-fledged computer gpus. In line with Nvidia at the launch at CES, the chip makes for a tablet more highly effective than an Xbox 360or playstation 3 recreation console, whereas ingesting one-twentieth the ability. The chipset comes with 4 Cortex-A15 cores clocked at 2.3ghz, plus a battery-saver core – giving the Tegra K1 its ‘4 Plus 1’ core structure – and a 192-core Nvidia Keller GPU. A 64-bit Tegra K1 model is scheduled to be launched in June.
When examined on An Tutu, 3dmark, Base Mark OS II, Base Mark X, Kraken 1.1, Sun spider 1.0.2, Google Octane 2.zero, and webxprt 2013, the Nvidia Tegra K1 was once discovered top the race towards the opposite two – rather dramatically. The tool on which the Sock was once examined used to be now not mentioned. On the other hand, in line with CPU-Z (by means of gsmarena) knowledge, the software is working on Android four.four.2 kitkat OS with 4GB of RAM and with a 320ppi pixel density monitor.
In fact, it must be stated that Qualcomm will quickly be launching the even more highly effective successor to the Snapdragon 801 chipset, the Snapdragon 805, with the primary devices running on it anticipated to hit retailer cabinets within the first half of 2014 – presumably beforehand of the Xiao mipad’s launch in mid-June. So, to be truthful, the Nvidia Tegra K1 must be pegged against the Snapdragon 805 – we’re excited to look a good way to come out on prime in those competitors.
Closing month, a purported picture of nvidia’s next-era shield 2 transportable gaming console checks below An Tutu surfaced on-line. The picture showed the yet-to-be-unannounced gaming console to be powered via a 2.5ghz quad-core processor, certain because the Tegra K1 Sock
For now, there is not any word on the discharge date, price and regional availability of the subsequent version of nvidia’s moveable console. On the other hand, we think the portable console to move on shop flooring round July, the identical time when the original Nvidia defend used to be offered.
