Nvidia had, last month at the Consumer Electronics Show 2014, announced the Tegra K1 superchip touting it to be powerful than the game consoles. Now a tablet, identified as Nvidia Tegra Note P1761, has been spoted on AnTuTu Benchmark with Tegra K1 processor and Android 4.4.2 KitKat operating system. This model is not formally launched but can be easily estimated to be the Tegra Note tablet successor.
Nvidia had launched the Tegra Note along with Xolo in India as Xolo Play Tegra Note. Nvidia had offered the Tegra Note as a tablet platform for the third party device makers to brand them and sell in select regions. Now Nvidia has already started working on the Tegra Note successor model – Tegra Note P1761 with its latest Tegra K1 super chip. This Tegra K1 superchip packs four cores plus one additional core to support 32-bit processing. Apparently, it does look like an improved version of the Tegra 4 mobile system-on-chip.
The unique aspect of this Tegra K1 chip is that it integrates 192 graphic cores touting Nvidia Kepler GPU architecture to deliver gaming console level graphics. This chip is ideally meant for the tablets and high end smartphones packing large battery.
The benchmark listing of the Tegra Note P1761 points that the tablet had unknown screen size supporting 1920×1080 pixel resolution. The tablet packs 2 GB RAM and 16 GB on-board storage. This testing unit was running Android 4.4.2 KitKat version.
Nvidia can be expected to show off this Tegra K1 based Tegra Note in near future. However, yet again the company will partner with third party vendors to sell the tablet in different countries.
