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.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
