    NVIDIA had a rough year last year struggling to compete with Qualcomm's monster successes in the mobile world. This year they are coming out with guns blazing though. Late yesterday they had a pre-CES event in which they announced their new Tegra K1 mobile architecture. It's not the Tegra 5, which will come later, but is more of a jump-start bridge to hit the ground running fast and hard this year. The new Tegra K1 boasts some very impressive advances, including a new 192-core GPU. The CPU for this architecture will come in two flavors: one is a 32-bit four-plus-one core using a Cortex A15 CPU, and the other is a 64-bit dual-core processor using an ARMv8 CPU.

    The GPU is being touted as the "fastest on the planet," and boasts speeds that are 1.5 times that of current mobile GPU tech. It uses elements from NVIDIA's famed Kepler architecture for the desktop. Here's a press statement with more of the details,

    It looks like NVIDIA is working hard to get back in the race. We look forward to seeing what they can come up with throughout 2014! Here's the full press release at the source link below.

    I'm assuming that the Lenovo ThinkVision 28 with its “latest NVIDIA Tegra processor” may be one of the first Tegra K1 powered devices to hit the market in early July.
