Nearly a year after the Apple A7 processor made its debut alongside the iPhone 5S, it’s Android’s turn to get a taste of 64-bit processor with NVidia leading the charge with its recently announced NVidia Tegra K1 Denver.
NVidia’s new mobile chipset features two “Project Denver” CPU cores which has a top speed of 2.5GHz and supports up to 8GB of DDR3L RAM. As customary with NVidia’s high-end mobile chipset, the dual-core chipset is paired with the company’s own Kepler-based GPU with a staggering 192 cores and has a frequency of 950MHz.
The combination of its dual-core Project Denver CPU and 192-core GPU is touted to bring mobile users “PC-class performance, for standard apps, extended battery life and the best web browsing experience”.
The first batch of devices which will run on the new NVidia Tegra K1 Denver are expected to make its debut in the latter part of the year which may possible include the long-rumored HTC Nexus 9 aka Volantis.
