Upgrade On The 64-Bit NVIDIA Tegra, Android L Powered Nexus 8 Tablet
As it remains only a matter of months before we shall witness the release of the Nexus 8 tablet powered by Google through HTC, which has been reportedly chosen to build the stock Android bearing device, we come across new information regarding the gadget. Not directly from Google or HTC, but from NVIDIA which is building the 64-bit Tegra K1 processing chip. This chips is rumored to be part of the hardware lineup for Google’s soon to be released Nexus 8 tablet, and it seems that Nvidia has decided to provide new information and details about its product.
For the Tegra K1 dual core chip, NVIDIA have chosen the codename Denver, and as far as 64-bit ARM-based processing units designed for Android go, this one is the first of its kind. Its manufacturer, NVIDIA, is confident that their product will have no problem in outranking any current ARM-based competitor.
The chip is speculated to prove itself very able when combined with the Nexus 8, which is believed to have what it takes to appropriately showcase all of Tegra K1’s processing power. Among the features and advantages the Nexus 8 will obtain through rolling with the 64-bit NVIDIA Tegra K1 processing unit, we remarked three distinct features.
Top Notch Graphics
The 8.9 inch display Nexus 8, capable of a 2560 x 1600 maximum resolution, will have no problem in displaying excellent graphic processing power, as the 64-bit Tegra K1 is a massive improvement from the 32-bit Tegra K1 that managed to get general positive acclaim and recognition for high performances. One can only imagine what the 64-bit version will be capable of.
Desktop Level Performance
The Nexus 8 will benefit from NVIDIA’s Dynamic Code Optimization which presumably bypasses application routines and speeds up the overall task at hand.
The 64-bit Tegra K1 is set to outrank and leave behind most quad core and octa core processors used on mobile devices at the moment, even though it is just a dual core processing unit, thanks to its advanced technology. It is safe to say that the performance levels of the 64-bit Tegra K1 powered Nexus 8 will reach those of a desktop computer, making multi tasking a very smooth and reliable feature.
Longer Battery Life
NVIDIA cleared the justified concerns of many, which believed that the Nexus 8 will not be able to sustain a very long battery life, due to its high-powered specification on both the CPU and GPU fronts. NVIDIA says that the technologies implemented in it 64-bit Tegra K1, such as dynamic code optimization and low latency power-state transitions will result in a low battery consumption level.
The Nexus 8, possibly branded the Nexus 9 due to its 8.9 inch display, will most likely hit the shelves sometime around October or November 2014.
