The Tegra K1 is the fastest in Nvidia’s latest series of SoCs. SoC stands for system on a chip, so its basically a chip with contains not only the GPU but many other components like wifi and RAM and other stuff. The Tegra K1 chip is to be released in both 32 bit and 64 bit forms. The 32 bit chips are to be released first. Since Tegra K1 is a huge leap in performance, we have been waiting patiently for a device that takes advantage of the Tegra K1’s muscle.
After several months of waiting its finally here. Xiaomi has announced that its next tablet will use the Tegra K1. This means that the Tegra K1 will start appearing in more devices soon. Thats all great but how does it fare against the Snapdragon 801 and the Tegra 4? I hear you ask. Well lets look at some graphs and find out. As a matter of fact I have some graphs right here. Lets take a look.
Nvidia Tegra K1 Punches Its Competition In The Face
Nvidia has been telling us that the Tegra K1 will be extremely powerful. Nvidia is using the CUDA technology in this chip, making it the first of its kind. In fact they are even making claims that the Tegra K1 is 50 times faster than the Tegra 2, and that it can beat the Xbox 360 and the PS3 all the while consuming less power. Now thats just ridiculous Nvidia.
Wow, that was a lot. Well we can tell by looking at these graphs that the blue line is winning a lot. It must be a lot faster than those snapdragon 801 and and tegra 4 chips.
The K1 is faster in browsing and 3D rendering, and it doesn’t use a lot of power either. It really impressed us, We live in interesting times and a lot of interesting things are definitely happening in the smartphone tech industry.
So what do you think? Are you excited about this or is it just another boring super fast chip. Let us know in the comments section below.
