The Tegra K1-soc tested – Nvidia’s mobile chip with desktop graphics




Die-shot Nvidia Tegra K1 The development of processors for mobile phones and tablets in recent years boomed and little by little come the fastest mobile chips in performance near the slowest chips for notebooks and desktops. Apple calls its A7-soc even “desktop class.

That’s what concerns absolute performance a bit exaggerated, but we see more and more overlap in the technology and manufacturing process. Thus, the A7-soc Apple, like modern desktop and notebook processors, 64-bit compatible.

In terms of graphics, the Nvidia which first bridge to the technology that we know from desktop computers and laptops. Until this year, the manufacturer used a separate graphics processor for its mobile chips, specially designed for use in smartphones and tablets and aimed at low energy, as competitors like Samsung, Qualcomm and Apple do. For the new K1 Tegra system-on-a-chip, however, uses the same Kepler architecture that the company has committed to his video cards in recent years.

That means not only that the Tegra K1 over many graphics processing power available; perhaps even more important is that these G20A-GPU must make to develop graphically intensive applications and portable games. easier for developers Namely, the chip supports the same APIs, including DirectX 11.2 and OpenGL 4.4, as a modern desktop video cards. Viewed in that light, it is not surprising that the Tegra K1 will be different Android set-top boxes used. Reportedly

Recently we received for the first device with the Tegra K1 hands: the Xiaomi Mi Pad. For any information about that tablet we refer you to our review . In this article, we focused on the Tegra K1, which we further discuss the new GPU and of course we also have benchmarks to show how the K1 performs at graphical level.
