At CES last month in Las Vegas, chip maker NVIDIA introduced its new Tegra X1 chipset which offers up an octa-core CPU based on the big.LITTLE architecture, and a GPU with a whopping 256 cores. Performance is said to double that of last year's NVIDIA Tegra K1. A device powered by the Tegra X1 has been benchmarked on AnTuTu where it set a record with a score of 74,977.
With a 3D score of 21,000, the Tegra X1 nearly doubles the score tallied by the 64-bit Denver version of the K1 and the "regular" version of the SoC. Those two scored 10,994 and 10,339 on the 3D graphics portion of the test, respectively. The Adreno 330 GPU on the HTC One (M8) tallied 14,613 for the 3D test on a recent AnTuTu benchmark visit.
To put the score of nearly 75,000 in perspective, the current top name on the AnTuTu leader board is the Meizu MX4 with a score of 47,765. The handset employs the big.LITTLE octa-core goodness of the MediaTek MT-6595 CPU. The graphics processor is the PowerVR G6200MP4.
The NVIDIA Tegra K1 didn't find its way into too many commercial devices last year, although the 64-bit Denver variant did manage to make its way inside the Nexus 9. Will the Tegra X1 fare the same, or will NVIDIA get to spread its silicon over more mobile devices in 2015?
Thanks for the tip!
