    If you're the sort of tech enthusiast who likes paying attention to the specs, by now you've no doubt heard about the NVIDIA Tegra K1 SoC, the company's latest offering. It introduced the chip back at CES in January, and lately we've been hearing about a lot of hardware that will take advantage of the K1, from Google's Project Tango dev tablet, to the new NVIDIA Shield Tablet, and maybe even that rumored HTC Nexus tablet. But what's easy to miss is that there are two versions of this hardware, a 32-bit quad-core A15 version, and an upcoming 64-bit edition. This week, NVIDIA turned the ...

    This past winter, Google let us know about one of its latest advanced Android experiments, the reality-mapping Project Tango. Using some Kinect-like sensors, the handset's designed to be able to scan its surroundings and create 3D maps. Google's already made that hardware available to developers, but more recently we heard about a new spin on Project Tango, with word that Google was working on a seven-inch Tango tablet that would be released sometime this month. Well, we're still not sure just when it might ship, but Google has gone ahead and announced its Project Tango Tablet Development ...

    We're now less than a month away from Google I/O 2014, and that means we will start seeing more frequent leaks of what exactly Google has in store for us at the developer conference. One of the things we have been expecting this year is a Nexus 7 refresh, as the current model is approaching its one-year birthday. Leaks of an HTC-manufactured Nexus 8 have already slowly started streaming out of Mountain View, but this latest one possibly adds some critical details to the leaks of weeks past. Allegedly found in Android source code, this information on Flounder (the Nexus 8's supposed ...

    NVIDIA has done a lot in the last two years in order to gain some traction in the mobile space. After the disappointments of the Tegra 3, and the lukewarm reception of the Tegra 4, it's clear that the company needed to deliver on its promise of giving us the best mobile processor the market could ask for. This year we saw the NVIDIA Tegra K1 announced at CES, and after almost six months since this announcement, we finally saw the Xiaomi Mi Pad announced with it today, and now that it's been benchmarked, we have something to talk about. In new benchmarks, the Tegra K1 was compared to the ...

    NVIDIA had a rough year in 2013 when it came to its SoC business. After the Tegra 3 and Tegra 2 before it were featured on a number of high-profile phones and tablets, OEMs balked at the Tegra 4, and we saw it used in few devices outside those NVIDIA directly had a hand in making. Now the company's got its new Tegra K1, an apparent powerhouse of a chip revealed back at CES in January. Will the K1 succeed where the Tegra 4 failed? That remains to be seen, but today we get the ball rolling as we learn about one of the first devices to feature a K1, the Xiaomi Mi Pad. Let's not beat around ...

    I've got four cores in my Nexus 5. My old Nexus 7 has four cores. Some of today's smartphones have eight cores (though it's arguable whether or not they can use all eight at the same time). My desktop computer has four hyper-threaded cores, so it looks like I have eight. Now, news out of CES 2014 is that NVIDIA has a 192-core processor: the Tegra K1, and it just might power your next smartphone or tablet. 192-cores: that's what the headlines are saying, but they're wrong -- sort of. Let's take a look at what goes into an SoC, and why NVIDIA's new Tegra K1 might not be all it's cracked up ...

    After much of our disappointment with Nvidia's Tegra 3 mobile processor, and the slow adoption of the Tegra 4, we'll admit that most of us were waiting to see if Nvidia's Tegra 5 would help the chipmaker have a more promising 2014. Nvidia has been famous for religiously using CES as their launch platform for every new mobile processor that we've known in the last couple of years, but this time, we didn't really get a Tegra 5. What Nvidia has unveiled today is actually something much bigger. The company has just announced their new Nvidia Tegra K1 mobile processor, and what makes this chip ...
