Nvidia Tegra K1 "Mocha" Tablet Appears in Benchmark

Here's the bad news right up front: the specs for an unannounced Nvidia device called "Mocha," originally posted on the GFXBench website, are no longer online. The good news is that Liliputing managed to grab the specs before they disappeared, and they're impressive for a 7.9-inch tablet.

According to the specs, the tablet will sport a 7.9-inch screen with a 2048 x 1536 resolution and at least a 5-point touch input. This tablet – and we say tablet because the Shield specs already showed up on AnTuTu – is powered by Nvidia's new Tegra K1 ARM Cortex-A15-based SoC.

As for other features, the list is slim: 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage (13 GB free), and support for OpenGL ES 3.1. Android 4.4.2 "KitKat" is the OS of choice, which is the same OS used on Nvidia's Shield handheld console. Liliputing also lists a 7MP camera on the back, a 4.8MP on the front, Wireless and Bluetooth connectivity, and GPS.

So now we're left with rumor and speculation. There's a good chance this will be a next-generation Tegra Note reference design, packing Nvidia's DirectStylus tech that allows chisel-tip styluses to draw lines of different widths based on the amount of pressure and angle.

News of a possible new reference design arrives after the Shield 2 specs leaked on a benchmark in April. If the numbers are true, the upcoming handheld will feature the Nvidia Tegra K1 chip with 192 CUDA cores powering a screen with a 1440 x 810 resolution. Also included is 4 GB of RAM, 16 GB of storage, and a 0.3MP camera.

    Exactly how many apps on android use more than 1GB of ram? even after several days of intense usage of my N5, with tons of apps suspended, and chrome and asphalt 8 open, ive never seen even 1GB usage, let alone 2.

    I really hope the new Nvidia Shield has a 6" display. I love my current shield but find the screen size lacking.
