Liveblog: Nvidia press-conference (CES 2014)
Nvidia is back to CES! Last year, the company treated us to the ambitious Project Shield console, as well the Tegra 4 mobile SoC (watch the presentation here). What could the famous GPU manufacturer have in store for us this year? Well, we'll know soon enough, because Nvidia's CES 2014 press-conference will take place today, starting at the times that you can see below. One thing is sure - we hope that Nvidia will have a bit more success with its mobile chipset offerings this year!

8 PM PT | 9 PM MT | 10 PM CT | 11 PM ET | 4 AM GMT (Jan 6) | 5 AM CET (Jan 6)

Live event tracker

23:34And that's a wrap folks! No actual devices announced, just Tegra K1.
23:30This is the last confession, a crop circle.
23:27One more "confession" folks, says Ken.
23:14Tegra K1 Vcm!
23:07"I've got a few more surprises for you." Now we're onto the automotive industry apparently.
23:05SO far, no crashing as they scroll through the Android homescreen. Lots of applause for that one!
23:04Quick demo of Tegra K1 with Denver, so it's possible we might see some crashes in this demo.
23:02Tegra K1 comes in 2 versions, where one is with dual denver CPUs.
22:55Well folks, it's been nothing but quick demos showing the power of Epics' latest gaming engine. Eye candy filled indeed with Unreal Engine 4
22:48If you look closely at that last image, we can spot a tablet of some kind.
22:45Another quick demo showing the processing power of the new chipset combined with the latest gaming engine.
22:38Now the question that remains is what new mobile device(s) will actually run the new chip.
22:38With this new model, the new architecture is coming to mobile faster, giving home consoles some heated competition.
22:37It took nearly 8 years for DX9 NV30, which was first introduced in 2002 for PC, to come to the iPad in 2010.
22:36It seems as though mobile gets the least amount of love when it comes to gaming technology.
22:34Epic games with bring Unreal Engine 4 to Tegra K1.
22:31"We've brought mobile computing to the same level of super computing."
22:29Tegra K1, the world's first 192-core Super chip!
22:28"It'll be a matter of time before Android disrupts the video game console industry."
22:27"We believe that Android is going to be the most important gaming platform,"
22:27Tegra 2, 1st dual-core. Tegra 3, 1st quad core. Tegra 4, 2x 1080p. So what's next? Maybe television?
22:24Onto chipsets! New Tegra perhaps?
22:21However, with NVIDIA's G-SYNC technology, it provides the best of having V-Sync on & off. Everything just looks smooth with the game!
22:20So far, we're just being shown the difference between V-sync on/off with the game Starcraft II.
22:16A quick talk about NVIDIA"s "G-Sync," where game frame rates are highly variable depending on what's happening in a game.
22:13It's pretty amazing where gaming is going, especially when it comes to real time streaming between several devices (ie Shield, PC, etc)
22:12A quick demo showing a PC game running on a 4K TV (remote access), scaled to reach the resolution
22:09So far it's a lot of talking about gaming. Like Twitch, which some of you know, allows people to record your games so you can view remotely.
22:07Ken is definitely under the weather, something he mentioned right from the onset. Quick water break there for him!
22:06NVIDIA is really adamant about gamestreaming, which is real time streaming of gaming content. Something we saw demoed with the Shield.
22:05First up on the list: next-gen PC gaming. Not surprising, right? We're sure some of you gamers are intrigued by this.
22:03Ken hsun huang, ceo and founder is out on stage giving the opening remarks.
21:55And we are in!
21:46We're still waiting outside to get in, but the festivities should get started in under 15 minutes.
21:41Hey guys, John V here as your host for this Nvidia press event. Stay tuned!
06:32Hey guys, stay tuned for today's Nvidia press-conference at CES 2014! Are we going to be live-blogging it? Yeees, we think we are!

can you name 10 deviced that launched this year and made use of the 4th version?!
tegra was and is and will be a flop. tegra 2& 3 were behind others in performance. tegra 4 was behind in launch date. tegra 5 will be behind in something else.

The Tegra Processors don't get as hot as Qualcomm ones get . Plus they are battery efficient too.

72 Gpu cores ! Holy Crap !

I always hear about "Tegra being behind others in performance" but my LG Optimus 2X with a Tegra 2 was faster in everyday tasks like opening apps than all the Galaxy S2 it was compared to, my HTC One X was both faster and smoother than any Galaxy S3 i have compared it to, again in everyday tasks. UI>Benchmarks, sorry.
Not to mention Tegra 3 despite having a "weak" GPU never throttled like Qualcomm's S4 Pro, S600 or S800, Tegra 3 had insane thermal performance as it could get to insane heat and still not throttle.
Current happy owner of a SD600 phone which is snappy as hell :D

Without LTE? That's the problem phone makers are facing when they consider using tegra.

Can't Nvidia just add LTE support? Shouldn't be that hard.

That will cost them an additional $15.

That's why Samsung Exynos didn't come with a LTE version on the Note3 and S4 for the Europeans version. The note2 did with Lte, which they had to pay Qualcom $15+ for just the LTE.

Exynos are dear and is expensive than the S800,805, cause they are the A15 Cpus

Tegra 4 has LTE so I can guarantee you the tegra 5 will have an LTE version.

Nvidia made a big deal about the LTE modem they made to accompany Tegra 4. Tegra 3 could have LTE as well, the HTC One X+ had Tegra 3 and LTE on AT&T.

nvidia has been always first to create hype and last to market..
hope they change their stratergy.. and can bring tegra 5 and tegra 4i in devices by q2 at max .. anything later than that then they should start preparing for ces 2015 from now..

qualcom is being beaten at low end by mediatek.. we need nvidia at high end to challenge .. even though Qualcomm is great but everyone hates monopoly

Nvidia will bring ultra gaming performance to mobile, tat is the differentiating factors.

Imagine, more powerful than a PS4 in a chip the size of a dime, producing only 2 watts of energy!

With the tegra 4 coming out last and basically not mattering they need to figure out how to get there flags out before competition beats them to the market.

Good GPU but nothing special and Qualacomm is beating everyones ass in the high end market. Tegra 4 isnt out yet on any major phone. They are way behind. Die in peace Nvidia mobile gpu, you wont be missed.

Are you sure about that...

The iPad4 is a year old device, with a GPU that is 2years old, which is still on par with Adreno450 which is even not on any mobile yet.

The PVRSGXROUGE6630 destroys the Adreno450 twice the GPU performance. It"s expensive that hardly no OEMS will use this.

It produces 370Gigflops vs A450 170Gigaflops.

So you don't no what you are talking about.

The Tegra Keplar Cuda has 900Gigflops, that is insane and immense for a mobile GPU

20. Shatter (Posts: 2036; Member since: 29 May 2013)

900 gigaflops of GPU power is insane for a phone right now. With that kind of power your talking running ps3/360 quality games.

Tegra 4 was poorly executed and overpriced so no OEMs bought it. If they priced it right and pushed it more then OEMS would of used it.

Tegra 4 beats the snapdragon 800 in lots of things and its like 6 months older.

27. kassi (Posts: 109; Member since: 25 May 2013)

ps3/360 has around 230 GFLOPS

"The iPad4 is a year old device, with a GPU that is 2years old, which is still on par with Adreno450 which is even not on any mobile yet. "

what have you been smoking bro , in not even on par with the Adreno 400 ..

the kepler GPU is really impressive , if nVidea brings with it a new A57 it would be a killer chip... (unfortunately rumors say it won't be)

25. brrunopt (Posts: 742; Member since: 15 Aug 2013)

the PowerVR SGX 554MP4 comes at 68.1 GFLOPS , less than half of the Adreno 450

What's with this spamming of yours?
Here's some information, please read carefully and stop the nonsense.


Tegra 5 - 345 GFLOPS (beats the ps3 and xbox 360 handily )
Adreno 420(not 450) - unknown, but probably over 200 GFLOPS

The iPad Air's PowerVr SGXG6430 GPU is weaker than even Adreno 330, btw.

posted on 05 Jan 2014, 15:30

28. kassi (Posts: 109; Member since: 25 May 2013)

they said Adreno 420 is 40% faster than Adreno 330, so that would make 180 or 220 Gflops depending on which version of the 330 they meant.
