The recently announced NVIDIA Tegra K1 chipset has just been benchmarked on one of NVIDIA’s prototype devices, revealing incredible performance from the chipset. The comparison chart above shows the likes of the Apple iPad Air, iPad Mini (Apple A7 chipset), the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 (Qualcomm Snapdragon 800) and Intel i5 and i7 running Ultrabooks.
This is very good news for NVIDIA which could find more hardware partners this year compared to what it did in 2013 where Tegra 4 devices started hitting markets only in the second half of the year, which is when the Snapdragon 800 emerged as the ultimate mobile SoC.
The Tegra K1 appears to be suited for tablets, so we might see increased tablet adoption from manufacturers. NVIDIA’s own Tegra Note reference design will most likely get an update later this year with support for the new K1 chipset. The successor to the partially successful Shield handheld gaming console will be something to look forward to as well, given the raw power that the Tegra K1 brings to the table.
