During CES in Las Vegas in January, NVIDIA Tegra presented its 32-bit K1 Denver, proving what processor could offer. A few hours ago, the company has done the same Tegra K1 presenting the 64-bit version, the first ARMv8 processor of its kind to be available for the Android and waiting to leap in terms of performance.
In this new version of the Tegra K1 128 cores GPU Kepler join its Project Denver CPU 64bit compatible one hundred percent with ARMv8 architecture, but for a faster market adoption also will be in 32bit. NVIDIA tells us in his blog, the K1 64bit chip will offer performance on mobile devices that have nothing to envy to some PC’s.
Those terminals equipped with this SoC will experience a tremendous performance with all kinds of apps and such a great experience in web browsing and of course new opportunities to exploit the full potential of games and business applications on Android open. Also be notified that they have worked on optimization, reducing energy consumption and therefore, extending the battery life.
Everything is ready for the jump to Android at 64 bits and with components like this, and those of other chip makers (both Mediatek and Qualcomm are working on it), performance is assured. Will this be the processor chosen for the rumored HTC Nexus 8?
