Mobile Platform: Nvidia Tegra K1
Nvidia's big announcement at CES was its Tegra K1 SoC. The company didn't want to call this part Tegra 5, believing that the shift to a desktop-class graphics architecture is important enough to warrant a departure from previous series naming. Naturally, the K in its name represents Kepler, the same design at the heart of most modern GeForce-based boards.
Although the K1's single SMX is still a far cry from anything you'd find on the desktop, you still get OpenGL ES 3.0, OpenGL 4.4, and DirectX 11 support (along with OpenCL and CUDA for compute). Regardless of whether we're looking at the 32-bit Cortex-A15 or pin-compatible 64-bit Denver version, we have to be impressed by this 5 W SoC's potential in the tablet space.
