From nvidia.com:

Our 32-bit Tegra K1 mobile processor has been racking up praise for bringing amazing performance and true console-quality graphics to the mobile space.

It “handily beats every other ARM SoC” in GPU performance benchmarks, according to Anandtech. And “the GPU performance is what stands out with the Tegra K1, nothing else on the market today is really able to get even close,” according to PC Perspective.

Now, eight months after unveiling Tegra K1’s 32-bit version, we’re providing further architectural details of the chip’s 64-bit version at HOT CHIPS, a technical conference on high-performance chips.

You can get more technical details here, while below is a general view of what we presented:

This new version of Tegra K1 pairs our 192-core Kepler architecture-based GPU with our own custom-designed, 64-bit, dual-core “Project Denver” CPU, which is fully ARMv8 architecture compatible. Further, Denver is fully pin compatible with the 32-bit Tegra K1 for ease of implementation and faster time to market.

With its exceptional performance and superior energy efficiency, the 64-bit Tegra K1 is the world’s first 64-bit ARM processor for Android, and completely outpaces other ARM-based mobile processors.
