NVIDIA’s Tegra K1 Benchmarked, Leaves Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800, Apple’s A7 in the Dust


NVIDIA’s new processor crushes competition

Remember NVIDIA’s Tegra K1 superchip that they unveiled during CES? Apparently the crew at Tom’s Hardware managed to grab a Lenovo  ThinkVision 28 4K display running the new chip, and run a couple of benchmarks on it. NVIDIA wasn’t lying when they said that the Tegra K1 would outperform the competition. According to Tom’s Hardware benchmarks, NVIDIA’s Tegra K1 managed to perform 25% better than the competition, which includes Qualcomm’s already monstrous Snapdragon 800 chip. Halimaw!

What’s interesting to note here is that according the Tom’s Hardware, there’s a big possibility that the Tegra K1 processor inside the Thinkvision 28 is underpowered, and is running roughly below 15% of its peak ceiling. In layman’s terms, the Tegra K1 had its hands tied behind its back, and it still trounced Snapdragon 800 and Apple’s A7 processor without any problems.
