NVIDIA on Sunday launched its next mobile “super” chip during the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) press event on Sunday.
The newly introduced super chip, dubbed NVIDIA Tegra X1, uses 256-core processor that brings more than one teraflop of processing power to the mobile devices.
Moreover, Tegra X1 offers more than twice the power provided by the NVIDIA Tegra K1.
Tegra X1 is designed for “mobile devices, embedded products, automotive applications and autonomous machines “.
According to the reports, the NVIDIA Tegra X1 will be available for sale in the market in the first half of the year.
Jen-Hsun Huang, CEO and co-founder of NVIDIA, said, “We see a future of autonomous cars, drones and robots that see and learn, with seeming intelligence that is hard to imagine. They will make possible safer driving, greater conveniences for transportation and more secure cities.”
“In order to achieve this dream, enormous advances in visual and parallel computing are required. The Tegra X1 mobile super chip, with its one teraflops of processing power, is a giant step into this revolution,” Huang added.
Some of the main features of NVIDIA Tegra X1 include a 256-core Maxwell GPU, 8 CPU cores consisting of 4 Cortex-A53 CPUs and 4 Cortex-A57, 1.3 gigapixel of camera, 60 fps 4K video (H.265, H.264, VP9) and several others.
