Is NVIDIA run by aliens? Crop circles used to promote new 192 core Tegra K1
The owner of the property, Scott Anthony, hired security guards to keep the public away, and he eventually plowed over the design. An airiel photographer named Julie Belanger had spotted the crop circle as she was flying over the field. "It was beautiful. Quite beautiful," she said. And while she added that she believes in aliens, she doesn't think that they would make crop circles to communicate with us.
Well Salinas, we now have the answer to your mystery. There are no aliens involved in producing that strange design cut into the field on Scott Anthony's farm. It was only silicon slinger NVIDIA.

192 cores on GPU is really a damn good thing and a very superb concept.

I remember a very similar situation last year when the Tegra 4 was announced with its 72 GPU cores. Everyone was so excited & look how that turned out. Not very many devices ended up using it. That being said, it would be nice to see a little more diversity in the market this year. Qualcomm pretty much ruled the roost in 2013 & with good reason. The Snap 800 was the best chip on the market by far. Hopefully, Samsung (Exynos) & Nvidia (Tegra) can regain some ground. Competition is good. It'll force everyone to say on their A game.

If you check out the tegra note 7 review at anandtech you'll see it be neck and neck with apple's a7 and sometimes exceed it. Makes the N7 look slow.
Too bad it can't match battery life though.

I can't wait until Apple announces their A192 chip. It will revolutionize the industry and show how innovative Apple really is. /s

Hey, I moved from Salinas in 2012 and I had a few people contact me about them. Now they let us know what is going on. Lol.
