Nvidia details 64-bit Denver Tegra K1, claims Haswell-class performance for first 64-bit Android chip

Tegra K1
Nvidia has finally taken the wraps off its 64-bit Denver CPU core — and, well, let’s just say that the 64-bit Android race just got a lot more interesting. The Denver CPU will be available later this year in the Tegra K1 SoC, where you’ll get two Denver cores and a 192-core Kepler GPU. Nvidia says this will be the first 64-bit ARM chip for Android, and that it “completely outpaces” other ARM SoCs. The Denver CPU is so beastly that it even beats out some PC-class chips (the low-end Haswell Celeron), while consuming much less power. The secret behind this performance boost is a novel technology called Dynamic Code Optimization.
