    Default NVIDIA's Tegra K1 Is Wonderfully Powerful, Efficient

    Phoronix: NVIDIA's Tegra K1 Is Wonderfully Powerful, Efficient

    During the Game Developer's Conference this week I had some hands-on time with a NVIDIA Tegra K1 device...

    Tegra K1 could make some really nice tablets.

    What I would like to see is a single-board computer though, to run as a server with ARMv8 64-bit cores.

    While the Kepler graphics core is capable of OpenGL 4.3, the NVIDIA representative I spoke with said it will be up to Google to decide what OpenGL version the Tegra K1 will officially advertise by their binary driver.
    Sure it's capable of OpenGL 4.4, which is backward compatible with OpenGL 4.3. Too bad those devboards usually costs arm and leg, I would be interested to see raspery pi like cheapish board with tegra k1.

    I'd really like a SBC too. But this first "version" of the K1 uses Cortex-A15 cores, not Nvidia's Denver cores that implement ARMv8.

    Sweet. Also can't wait for the Denver/Maxwell combo at 16n FinFET (2 process improvements from current one). It's going to be epic. I think we'll definitely 1 Tflops in it, or maybe even 1.2, just so they can say that after K1 was already as powerful as Xbox360, the new chip is already as powerful as Xbox One, a year later

    Wink Watts up (like on Eurosport)

    Not quite sure about the performance/watt of this thing. Charlie has a flamboyant and pompous style and can be quite annoying (for the company scrutinized, I always have fun reading) when he really wants:

    And he is usually right. Now, that's really annoying.
