Nvidia unveils new processor to bring mobile computing to ‘the same level’ as desktops

phpyjasalNvidia has announced its latest Tegra mobile processor, which the company says will bring PC-like gaming experience to smartphones and tablets.

Speaking at a company press event at CES in Las Vegas on Sunday, CEO Jen-Hsun Huang said the new Tegra K1 mobile processor — which features 192 cores — has “brought mobile computing to the same level as desktop computing.”

Machines running on Tegra K1 will support Epic Games’ Unreal Engine 4, meaning that some of the world’s premier PC and console games will be capable of extending to mobile devices. Tim Sweeney, CEO of Epic Games, lauded Nvidia for making this technology available today, saying that he anticipated it would take at least another four years.

That’s not quite all, since the Tegra K1 is also designed for 4K TV sets, game consoles, cars and more. The new processor replaces the Tegra 4, which was unveiled last year.
