Leak shows the HTC Nexus tablet powered by a 64-bit Tegra K1 processor

Leak shows the HTC Nexus tablet powered by a 64-bit Tegra K1 processor
We have been getting quite a bit of info about the upcoming Nexus X, but not as many leaks regarding the HTC-built Nexus tablet. We know that it exists, and the rumors say it will be an 8.9-inch display with the same resolution of the Nexus 10 (2560x1600). There have also been rumors that it would feature a 64-bit Tegra processor, and that appears to be accurate.

A new CPU-Z report has leaked that shows what is said to be processor info for the upcoming HTC Nexus tablet. CPU-Z reports are impossible to fake, and TKTech has proven to be a reliable leaker. We have checked on the report and are assured it is accurate. It shows a device that is powered by a Tegra K1 clocked at 2.5GHz, with the ridiculous 192-core Kepler GPU. This is a serious SoC, and the Nexus tablet has been rumored in the past to be the first device with this Tegra chip.

Tegra has said said that this chip is 1.5 times more efficient than other mobile GPUs, meaning that the power won't sacrifice battery life. The chip has been shown to be capable of running the Unreal Engine 4, fully support DirectX 11, and OpenGL 4.4. That is to say, this chip can do more than Android can (Android L only adds support up to OpenGL 3.1). And, the chip shown is the K1 Denver, which is 64-bit and murders benchmarks. That's not a bad option for the new Nexus tablet.

Seriously man i own a windows phone and love it, lumia1520 to be specific. But been waiting for something like this and im considering it very much i wouldn't mind having an android device with that kind of power could replace my old computer. Hell anything could replace that thing i only use that thing for work other then that my phone is good pretty much for everything else. Coming back to the nexus yes very nice if priced right 399.99 would deff pay for it. Or depending on the ipad mini 3 also will consider depending specs and price yet haven't heard any rumors about that.

This tablet has some beast specs and with the high build quality of HTC, this will be my first tablet to buy. Finally, a tablet worth buying. Bring it on Google/HTC

I am glad I got the Shield Portable, I am super impressed with my HTC ONE M8, and thanks to the shield, dont need to game on the tablet, freeing up the tablet for me to customize to my hearts content, it also allows me to keep the tablet 3+ years. Its amazing how long they'll last when you don't need them for gaming...

If this had more than 2GB RAM I'd most certainly buy to replace my iPad 4.

It's mostly certain that it will come AT LEAST with 2 GB of RAM. All the latest products (Nexus 5, Nexus 7) have already 2 GB and if going for a 64bit SoC for sure won't be a regression there.

If it comes with a 32Gbs or more and 3-4Gigs of ram this might be the first Android Tablet I've bought.... Ever. I never bothered buying a Android tablet cause my Smartphone had or has a fast processor.

I am still kicking it with my 2 year old Nexus 10 as my main gaming tablet despite also having a Nexus 7 2nd gen that is strictly for reading and an iPad Air. Still not convinced that Suck T C will do this thing justice but we shall see.

Dude, Nexus 10 lags like a sick turtle, I dunno about your gaming tastes but, you gotta sell it. My brother has one and I only liked the design and the sound as far as aesthetics and audio goes. Everything else is a meh, including the screen

http://youtu.be/bRrxIH-jEhI I am more in line with this video. The screen is still the best tablet screen IMO opinion although I never had a tab pro 8.4. Much better than my iPad Air screen and that's a nice screen. The Nexus 10 screen is super sharp and crisp. I think your bro might have a bunk model because 2 years and counting it's the best tablet by far. No issues. With HTC I expect dead pixels, light bleed, loose buttons, poor finishing on the USB ports. The works like all of their other devices. The only reason I am in the market for another tablet is that I use it so much that the battery is dying now. I was looking at the tablet Z2 but the screen sucks and the tab pro 8.4 but I am not a fan of touch wiz. So I might be out of luck.

The Tab Pro 8.4 has a nicer screen and it is waay snappier. Held them side by side countless times (bcoz I own a Tab Pro) Some games at the Playstore are simply not optimized for the T604Mali while the Adreno 330 handles everything with ease. If you can sell it to fund a super-cheap Tab Pro (around $270 online these days) you won't be sorry, trust me.

What ? Nexus 10 as an gaming tablet ?

56. Taters

Yeah the screen is still the high water mark and I only play stuff like Angry Birds and Tower defense anyways. For those types of games the 2 year Nexus 10 is still the best because you can see all the details with that screen.

''Tegra has said said that this chip is 1.5 times more efficient than other mobile GPUs, meaning that the power won't sacrifice battery life'' You got to be kidding me. You got to be kidding me. Nvidia are notorious for their BS promises....oh well I'd take it with a grain of salt

But this the reviews are backing up Nvidia's claims this time E.g. AnadTech did a test with the T-Rex benchmark, the Sheild tablet lasted longer than the Note 3 (800), Tab S 8.4 (Exynos) and a ASUS mini tablet (64-bit Atom) Unfortunately AnandTech didn't have an iPad or 801/805 tablet in the test, but users are also reporting pretty good battery life Also max temp of 50C, which on par with the A7/801/805 Before Nvidia's Fermi GPUs were notorious for being inefficient, they were called Thermi because of how hot they got But now Nvidia's Kelper (in the K1) and Maxwell GPUs are the most efficient dGPUs Seems like Nvidia's CPUs are now pretty much as efficient as their competition

I don't know, but, I'd like to see a real review from a consumer with a production model of course. AnandTech is a fishy site, never trusted them anyways. If this tablet can indeed deliver (based on Nvidia's claims), I'd buy it in a heartbeat, but right now I'll remain skeptical.

"AnandTech is a fishy site, never trusted them anyways." That is wise. AnandTech is basically a better done industry sell out site. They used to have that guy Brian Klug who did mobile reviews and constantly slammed phones with removable batteries and SD cards. He would say things like it is not possible to make a good phone with these features. These days, they pick and choose very carefully what to say/not say about devices. The bias is better hidden than many sites, but not so hard to see if you look at their site every now and then.

There are several reviews both of the Xiaomi Mipad and the Tegra Shield tablet, if you don't know about them is because you don't want to know. All of them have something in common: great performance with a "normal" battery consumption for the Tegra K1 (4 A15 cores, not Denver) http://www.techinasia.com/xiaomi-mipad-review-and-photos/http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-2014-xiaomi-mipad-reviewhttp://www.engadget.com/2014/08/14/nvidia-shield-tablet-review/ I can only expect that with Denver CPU performance will get even better with the same power consumption, specially the single core performance should go up to catch up with Haswell lower cores (Celeron and may be Pentium, "cores" not atom based ones)
