Black Friday Deals Tracker is Live

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.
