The newly announced NVIDIA Tegra K1 processor is said to rely on 192 core graphics processing unit which equates to, in Nvidia’s words, more powerful than the GPUs found on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 gaming consoles, and even three times more powerful than the iPhone 5s.
And to justify that claim, the Tegra K1 went to it’s first public benchmark test and showed more than impressive results. On GFXBench’s T-Rex 1080p off-screen benchmark, the K1 GPU, came out on top over the Tegra 4′s 16 fps, the Snapdragon 800-powered Galaxy Note 3′s 24 fps and the iPad Air’s 27 fps by a significant margin scoring 60 frames per second.
The Tegra K1 managed to back it’s claim up when they said they will try to close the gap between console and mobile graphics. The only thing we need now is to see the processor on a device and see it actually perform.
