NVIDIA is one of the companies that we are looking forward to seeing at this year's Consumer Electronics Show. The company has just revealed its next-generation SoC that promises to bring the PC gaming experience to mobile devices.
Enter the Tegra K1 processor, a 192-core chip that features NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 780 Ti graphics processing unit. Apart from the 192 CUDA (Compute Unified Device Architecture) cores, the Tegra K1 will also support 64-bit computing, akin to Apple's A7 chip used on the iPhone 5S.
Known to tech circles as Project Denver, the chip aims to deliver ultra-high single-thread and multi-thread performance, not to mention energy-efficiency at its best. NVIDIA will also offer a 32-bit quad-core version of the processor based on the 4-Plus-1 ARM Cortex A15 CPU found also on the Tegra 4 SoC.
Other noteworthy features include support for DirectX 11, OpenGL 4.4, and Unreal Engine 4. The 32-bit model will be available in Q1 this year, whilst the 64-bit monster will hit the market later this year.
