Nvidia today announced the Tegra X1 processor, a new chip that brings the power of its Maxwell desktop architecture to mobile devices. The X1 has an octa-core 64-bit ARM processor paired with a 256-core Maxwell GPU. Nvidia touted it as bringing desktop performance to mobile devices, while at the same time delivering noticeable power efficiency gains. The company say the X1 is twice as powerful as the K1, which it replaces, and claims it is the first to achieve 1 teraflop floating point calculations. The company also showed off the Tegra X1-based Drive CX, which is for automobiles. The Drive CX will let car makers stick Android, Linux, or QNX into the dashboard of automobiles. Nvidia didn't say when it expects to see the X1 or Drive CX reaching consumer-grade equipment.
