Nexus 9 is now official, flexing 64-bit Tegra K1 muscle
Design: 9" screen, HTC-made, with dual front speakers
The Nexus 9 is made by HTC and it shows: the tablet carries the signature for HTC dual front-firing speakers as its most recognizable design accent. HTC and Google have also settled on using a brushed aluminum frame rather than a full-on metal body in order to keep price down. The 9-inch tablet is not too chubby with a thickness of 0.31" (7.9mm), and it weighs 0.94 pounds (425g) for the Wi-Fi model, and a bit more for the LTE version. The new Nexus tablet will come in a choice of Indigo Black, Lunar White, and Sand (the latter available later on).
Android Lollipop on a tablet
The Nexus 9 is the first device to run on Android L, but it’s also the first tablet to run on Google’s new platform, showing what the tablet experience looks like.
Nexus 9: powered by Nvidia’s Tegra K1, gamers rejoice
Having Nvidia’s powerful Tegra K1 on board the Nexus 9 is great as this is one of the first devices to come with this chip. It’s in fact the first tablet to ship with Nvidia’s new, dual-core 64-bit Denver CPU core architecture.
Denver is an impressively large core with a desktop-class, wide, 7-issue superscalar design, with clock speeds of up to 2.3GHz. It also comes with a large amount of L1 cache: 128K+64K (I$/D$). Interestingly, Denver is rumored to have originally been designed with desktop machines in mind, but eventually it ended up on mobile devices.
The tablet comes with 2GB of RAM, and it also features the Kepler with 192 shader cores that has shown it performs at the top of the charts, which will make the device a delight for gamers.
