While we're incredibly infatuated right now with NVIDIA's Tegra K1 that offers quad-core Cortex-A15 performance with Kepler-class graphics, the 64-bit Tegra K1 should be even better.

Up to this point we've seen NVIDIA's Tegra K1 32-bit SoC with incredible compute and graphics results. Right now the Tegra K1 is my favorite ARM SoC with regards to performance, but now the company is finally working on their 64-bit ARM SoC that's (sadly) also called Tegra K1. As many Phoronix readers will know by now, the 64-bit Tegra K1 is codenamed "Denver" and is slated to become the first 64-bit ARM processor for Android.

NVIDIA revealed more "Denver" details today at the Hot Chips conference. NVIDIA's Denver will have the 192-core Kepler GPU paired with a custom 64-bit ARMv8 CPU and is pin-compatible with the 32-bit Tegra K1. Those wishing to learn more about the Tegra K1 "Denver" processor can read NVIDIA's latest blog post for more details.
