So...NVIDIA just announced a 192 CUDA core "super chip" based on the Kepler architecture (GeForce GPUs) dubbed Tegra K1. It's supposed to be the next-generation Tegra chip.

Epic Games is bringing Unreal Engine 4 to K1.

Based on DX11, more powerful than 360 and PS3 in raw power. Running at 5W.

There will be two versions - Quad Core A15, second version based on Dual-Core Denver CPUs (custom NVIDIA CPU based on ARM V8 64-bit)

Early benchmarks of a Lenovo "monitor/tablet" that reportedly contains a K1. It's a 28" 3840x2160 display. It's the Quad-A15 version running @ 2GHz.

I'd definitely love to see some benchmarks. And I'd love to see this in the next Nexus 7! Especially since I mainly use mine for gaming and entertainment.

Damn, it seems improbably powerful. Marketing might be a little overblown, but the graphic demos are a generation jump over today's mobile GPUs. I think OEMs will skip this until the Denver version comes out hopefully with LTE built in (one of Qualcomms continued advantages).

*Epic games is bringing unreal engine to k1*

Great. We really want more of the "can't play x game in high res graphics because its only tegra optimized" bs /s.

Tegra launches with hype and falls flat quickly after.

We'll see soon enough.

The benchmarks aren't as exciting as the hype. In fact I'm staggered that a 1.3GHz dual core chip keeps up decently well with a 192 CUDA Core chip.
