Nvidia kicks off CES with their new mobile processor, dubbed the Tegra K1. This super chip features first 192-core GPU based on the Kepler architecture, powered by DirectX 11, and supporting Unreal Engine 4 and OpenGL 4.4. There are 64- and 32-bit versions to pick from, too.
At their CES presentation tonight, the K1 was shown running both Unreal Engine 4 and Android running 64-bit. The chip features architecture for 3D graphics that was originally intended for desktops; now this power is coming to mobile devices. We're talking graphical power that beats the PS3 and Xbox 360, they say. Check that "Reflections" demo in the above video for some idea of what this thing can do.
The quad core 32-bit version will star showing up in devices in the first half of 2014, while the 64-bit dual-core one will pop up later in the year.
