Acer CB5 Chromebook To Feature Nvidia Tegra K1 Processor, 13 Hours of Battery Life

It seems Nvidia Tegra K1 is getting in more hardware than its predessors. It can not only be found in Jetson TK1 development board and Shield tablet developed by the company, but also products such as Xiaomi MiPad, as well as Google Tango Project Tablet devkit. Acer CB5 Chromebook should also launch very soon with Tegra K1 quad core processor, a 13.3″ display, and the company claims it should last 13 hours based on Google’s power_loadtest.

Acer_CB5_ChromebookPreliminary specs for Acer CB5 Chromebook:

  • SoC- Nvidia Tegra K1 quad core Cortex A15 @ 2.1 GHz with Kepler GPU

Nice machine.

In theory this might be the best Arm Linux laptop (adding to the fact it run ChromeOS) as it would be supported by both binary and OSS drivers.
Sadly it seems like Nvidia might not add VDPAU support to the Kepler which would have made this the perfect Arm platform for Linux.

They do have OpenMax and from what I hear programs are starting to support that. Besides VDPAU could probably be reversed engineered for it quite easily.
This looks very exciting otherwise though, I’d love to run some real Linux on this one. But I’d love it to be the 64bit SOC even more. Maybe a 64bit model will eventually show up.

nice… but is the real disponibility on market and the street price that will determine the popularity.
