NVidia 64 bit chip promoted as Android champ
NVidia is looking to sweep the Android market with the launch of its 64 bit Tegra K1 processor earlier this year. Now, the company has some answers as to why it thinks its chip will be the king of speed in the industry.
The chip’s two Project Denver core is part of the reason of the stardom because the core looks to optimize codes immediately. The two Project Denver core looks to break down big instructions into little itty bitty super efficient functions that are recycled as often as necessary.
With this, we should expect twice the speed from the 64 bit K1 chip as well as higher performance as a result. Don’t be surprised if we see more Tegra powered laptops and high end tablets with the introduction of this processor.
Silent on the official date we will be able to see the chip in action, the company did mention that the K1 will be the first 64-bit ARM chip to run Android. NVidia is working with the release of Android L to showcase the new Tegra potential.
However, as impressive as this is, NVidia will have to beat out Qualcomm as a competitor. Its rival is also expecting its 64 bit Snapdragon 410 and 610 to show up later this year.
