Nvidia’s Tegra K1 comes to the US in Google’s 3D depth-sensing Tango tablet

Google's Project Tango devkit tablet, front and back
The first device powered by Nvidia’s new Tegra K1 SoC to hit the US will be Google’s Tango tablet devkit. The K1 is notable for being the first mobile SoC to include a “desktop-class” GPU (a cut-down 192-core Kepler). The Tango tablet follows on from the Tango smartphone, which Google showed off back in February. The first K1-powered tablet, when it arrives later this year (probably soon), will set you back a grand total of $1024 — but that’s a small price to pay for a mobile walk-around device with advanced 3D sensing and mapping capabilities.
