“‘We believe the Android operating system will be the most important console operating system in the future,’ Nvidia CEO and co-founder Jen-Hsun Huang said at the company’s CES 2014 press conference tonight. Then he effectively declared war on next-generation console gaming by announcing the Tegra K1, the company’s next mobile chip with a whopping 192-cores,” Jason Evangelho reports for Forbes.
“Prior to the announcement, Jen-Hsun caught up the audience with the company’s Tegra milestones like the Tegra 3 being the first mobile quad-core processor. ”So what can we do next? We could do 8 cores, but that seems a little pedestrian,” Jen-Hsun joked. Then he unveiled the 192-core Tegra K1, rooted in Kepler architecture,” Evangelho reports. “According to Nvidia, Tegra K1 offers 3x the performance of Apple’s A7 processor.”
