Google's upcoming Nexus 9 tablet is already live. And already a lot has been built up on the new device and it's characteristic features: The most prominent one being the 192-core Tegra K1 chip that's fitted inside. There's more to read up on that now.
As revealed by the company, Nvidia's Tegra K1 processor, formerly called Project Denver, has a few notable technical features that have been optimized for Google's next-gen OS, that will help deliver "PC-class performance" in a tablet, according to the company.
Also, its ARM v8-based central processor design makes the Tegra K1 the "first ARM processor for Android to take advantage of Lollipop support for 64-bit CPU architectures," Nvidia said.
Apart from that, Nvidia is also claiming that its latest Tegra chip "brings class-leading efficiency and power to mobile devices" to both boost performance and battery life, with the help of the processor's "unique seven-way superscalar micro-architecture and support for Dynamic Code Optimization."
As you may already know by now, the Nexus 9, that was developed by HTC for Google, comes with an 8.9-inch screen and has a separate keyboard which can be attached to the tablet via magnets.
The Nexus 9, alongside Motorola's Nexus 6 smartphone, is one of the first devices to ship with Google's new Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system. Google made the Nexus 9 available for pre-order on Google Play and elsewhere last Friday.
