Nvidia K1 CPU

Nvidia finally revealed its gaming ambitions for the year at CES 2014 with the Tegra K1, a mobile CPU that is apparently more powerful than the Xbox 360 and PS3 according to CEO Jen-Hsun Huang.

As reported by Polygon, Huang described the 192 CUDA core, Keplar architecture-based CPU as “all fully programmable, all massively parallel. We’ve brought mobile computing to the same level as desktop computing. We’ve brought mobile computing to the same level as super computing. We’ve brought the heart of GeForce and the soul of Tesla to the Tegra family.”

Just how impressive is the power of the CPU? It’s apparently capable of running Unreal Engine 4 with Epic Games’ Tim Sweeney stating that, “We can take absolutely anything that runs on PC or high-end console and run it on Tegra. I didn’t think that we’d be at this level on mobile for another three to four years.”

All this power will of course consume far less power than both current-gen consoles and while the K1 will appear in smartphones and tablets, don’t be surprised to see it used for Smart TVs and Smart Cars. Your thoughts? Let us know below.

    That statement is very misleading. Yes it is more “powerful” then the cpu in the ps3 and xbox360 but there is more to a system than just a CPU. Also while nvidia shows all these fancy graphics people forget they are running on small screens. Blow them up to console resolution and size and the graphics will not match the last generation of consoles. Especially not at the power levels it runs at. We are at least another generation of 2 away until a mobile chipset can match last gen consoles at the same fidelity level and speed.

    Still awesome news for mobile but nVidia is really good at making it sound better than it really is.
