Nvidia has been a great motivator for video gamers and graphic lovers. After the Tegra 4 processor, now the company at the CES, 2014 taking place in Las Vegas just unveiled its latest chip called the Tegra K1. The chip is the first ever to feature 192 cores in it and is based on the Kepler architecture.
Nvidia's latest graphic mechanism is in itself an impossible yet advanced chip and on top of that, the chip will also support Unreal Engine 4. Reportedly, at the demos, most found out a heavy difference between the Tegra 4 and the latest Tegra K1 chips. It offers real-time computing, much higher dynamic range and greater details. Moreover, according to Huang, the new chip brings mobile computing to the same level of desktop computing.
Reportedly, CEO Jen-Hsun Huang, at the Consumer Electronics Show said, "It's almost inappropriate to call it Tegra 5, because it's simply not linear." He further added, "It's the most successful architecture we've created." Huang also announced saying that the Epic Games will bring its next engine, the Unreal Engine 4, to the Tegra K1.
So far, we have seen the company's chips incorporated in Microsoft Surface and Google Nexus 7 tablets. However, the company has not been able to crack into the smartphone market so far.
The company's latest K1 processor would be seen soon in powering new devices. These devices can be expected to have an incredible gaming capability with strong graphics.
The company also spoke about its future in gaming arena. And also talked about it's GeForce brand as the core of its gaming strategy.
Huang also reportedly said that through GeForce it was now possible to capture a user's game and share directly to the gamer video service Twitch without hurting his or her frame rate.
