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.

With the second iteration of NVIDIA K1, users will be working with dual CPUs based on 64-bit technology made to work with high-end multi-threaded processing abilities. Tegra K1 with dual-core Denver is a 7-way Scaler, and is able to be clocked in at up to 2.5Ghz per core. This processor is works with 128K+64K L1$, and the whole lot is completely Pin Compatible - back and forth between the two versions of Tegra K1.

This 192-core Super Chip, as they call it, is ready for action with a variety of next-generation applications like NVIDIA's efforts in the automotive space. We'll be jumping in on this super-powered beast over the next few days without a doubt.
