Nvidia Tegra K1 (Denver)

NVIDIA K1 (Denver)

The Nvidia Tegra K1 (Dual-Core, Denver) is a High-End Gaming SoC for Android based Tablets. The chip offers two 64 Bit CPU cores that were developed by Nvidia (Codename Denver). They are using the ARMv8-ISA and offer a very good single threaded performance. Therefore, the Dual-Core CPU is able to compete with Cortex-A15 based quad-cores like the quad-core version of the K1.

The integrated Kepler GPU (see for benchmarks), Video De- and Encoders and 2x 32 Bit Dual-Channel memory controllers are identical to the quad-core version of the K1.
