NVIDIA Tegra K1 out-performs Intel Haswell in early benchmarks

NVIDIA Tegra K1 out-performs Intel Haswell in early benchmarks

This week a number of early benchmark tests are appearing with clues as to the true (artificial benchmark) performance of the NVIDIA Tegra K1. This processor was introduced last week at CES 2014 with promise that it wasn't just a successor to the NVIDIA Tegra 4, it was a whole new skewed line of SoC, one capable of out-doing even last generation's biggest and best gaming consoles, like the PS3 and the Xbox 360. Now we're seeing some results that suggest the Tegra K1 works better than Apple's A7 chip and the NVIDIA Snapdragon 800 as well.

Tegra K1 Denver release is NVIDIA’s first 64-bit outing

Bringing on a 192-core processor in the NVIDIA Tegra K1 wasn't a big enough release for NVIDIA at CES 2014. Instead they had to go beyond a single Quad-core A15 iteration - they decided to deliver two iterations of this mobile processor this week - one is that quad-core version, the other is a dual-CPU-core processor based on NVIDIA Denver. Denver, if you did not know, works with 64-bit architecture.

NVIDIA Tegra K1 official with 192-cores for mobile devices

This week NVIDIA has announced the world's first 192-core superchip - or processor, if you prefer that term better. This is a chip that NVIDIA suggests does not come along a linear path from NVIDIA 2, 3, and 4.

EVGA Tegra Note 7 Review

EVGA Tegra Note 7 Review

The stylus was dead, and now it's back. What once was the hallmark of cheap touchscreens and finger-unfriendly software has, thanks in no small part to Samsung's efforts with its Galaxy Note range, had a second-wind; even the popularity of aftermarket capacitive pens for the iPad suggests not every iOS user agrees with Steve Jobs that "if you see a stylus, they blew it." Now NVIDIA is wading into the fray, targeting not only pen control but a low price too, with the Tegra Note 7. Set to be sold under different brands in different countries - such as the EVGA model on the SlashGear test bench - the Tegra Note 7 claims similar functionality to Samsung's Galaxy Note 8.0 but at just $199. Over-ambitious? Read on for our full review.

Surface 2 Review

Surface 2 Review

Microsoft really, really needs the Surface 2 to succeed. Praise around the first-generation Surface RT's hardware and design was tempered with more than a little criticism of Windows RT, and confused consumers left tablet manufacturers focusing on Windows 8 until only Microsoft's slate was left running the pared-back version. The Surface 2, then, aims to give Windows RT a second chance, but is Microsoft finally onto a winner or simply flogging a dead horse? Read on for the SlashGear review.
