With Tegra K1 and its Kepler GPU, Nvidia brings OpenGL 4.4, and not only OpenGL ES, to mobile devices, and the company is demo’ing OpenGL games such as Trine 2 on Tegra 4 reference tablet at CES 2014.
In my initial post about Tegra K1 announcement, I missed some key features about Nvidia new processor which has now popped up on their website such as support for up to 8GB RAM, 4+1 configuration, etc and so listing a summary of the technical specifications of the 32-bit version may be useful:
- GPU – 192 NVIDIA CUDA cores using Kepler architecture
- CPU – NVIDIA 4-Plus-1 Quad-Core ARM Cortex-A15 “r3” up to 2.3 GHz
- Memory – DDR3L and LPDDR3, up to 8 GB with 40-bit address extension
- Display – LCD: Up to 3840×2160, HDMI: Up to 4K (UltraHD, 4096×2160)
- Package – 23×23 FCBGA, 16×16 S-FCCSP, or 15×15 FC PoP
- Process – 28 nm
Other details about the tablet are currently lacking, and I could not find further information on Nvidia website.
Nvidia showed Trine 2 demo during their CES 2014 press event, but Brad Linder, Liliputing, is at the conference and shot a quick video showing more graphics effect, and what possible on Tegra K1 reference platform.
