NVIDIA Tegra K1 successor: Erista, son of Logan, with Maxwell

Those of you with keen eyes for name-changes will recognize a bit of a switch-over this week with NVIDIA’s mobile processor lineup. While each successive generation has been named Tegra in the end, it’s been several years since NVIDIA has used anything but a comic book hero-inspired code-name for a mobile product.* *UPDATE: not so fast! Erista is a comic book character as well!

2015 Audi A3 First Drive

No chances are being taken with the 2015 Audi A3. While the outgoing model never quite achieved the same cachet in the US as it did in Europe in five-door hatchback form, the new car targets the US from the outset with an A3 Sedan leading the charge. Starting just under $29,900 but promising Teutonic refinement - and a typically lengthy options list, including what may be the best infotainment system we’ve used so far - the A3 aims to follow in the footsteps of its well-received bigger siblings, not to mention return fire against other recent entrants in the premium C-segment niche. Read on for our first drive report.

Wiko WAX hands-on: NVIDIA Tegra 4i gets busy

At last year’s Mobile World Congress we saw the NVIDIA Tegra 4i in a smartphone for the first time - a test model made just to show the processor’s capabilities. This year at MWC 2014 we’re seeing NVIDIA’s first real-deal manufacturer partner for the chip for a smartphone in the Wiko WAX. This device is thin, it’s light, and if NVIDIA has anything to say about it, it’s ready to roll with heavy-duty gaming power as well.

NVIDIA TegraZone update brings console readiness for all Androids

It's been years - at this point - since NVIDIA released their TegraZone, a place where the groups that the company had worked with hand-in-hand to optimize games for their Tegra processors could be collectively shown off. Now the group updates this app environment to work not only with devices that roll with NVIDIA Tegra processors inside, but all Android devices, no restrictions. The newest update to the NVIDIA TegraZone also makes it fully physical-controller friendly for NVIDIA SHIELD and gaming consoles alike.

At the moment you’ll find the folks behind the open-source project known as Limelight working on Android devices, attempting to make the PC streaming option for games through Valve’s Steam work with all devices, not just NVIDIA SHIELD.

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.

This week the folks at NVIDIA revealed their next-generation mobile processor, the NVIDIA Tegra K1, and with it the incorporation of Unreal Engine 4 technology. This release will allow the gaming PC world to essentially converge with the mobile processing world, and as CEO of Epic Games Tim Sweeney suggests, they’ll now be able to “take absolutely anything that runs on PC or on a console and run it on Tegra.”
