Early benchmarks for the Tegra K1 processor from NVIDIA are hitting the web this week, apparently running on a Lenovo ThinkVision 28 4K smart display which features the Android OS. The thing is, NVIDIA would state that these are just preliminary benchmarks, as the processor has unlikely been optimized for such testing, and these numbers shouldn’t be taken to heart quite yet.

What’s better than a brand new Audi with AT&T LTE built in? A brand new Audi with LTE that has an NVIDIA software system to back it up. CES 2014 is shaping up to be the battle over your dashboard, and NVIDIA is looking to make their mark by bringing their Tegra experience and Visual Computing Module to Audis this year, and hopefully more cars down the road.

NVIDIA, in a press event to kick off CES 2014, just announced the TEGRA K1, the world’s first 192-core “Super Chip.” We’re talking mobile architecture that’s as good as PC architecture.
At this point, we still don’t have devices that are running the processor, but we do have a bunch of demos. As you can imagine, the K1 is impressive on a number of levels. If you were looking for the ultimate gaming chip for mobile (or any platform for that matter), this would be it. (more…)
We’re live at NVIDIA!
Welcome to CES 2014, friends. The kick off to this week of electronics madness is NVIDIA, for the second time in two years. We still aren’t sure what we’ll see, but on stage we can already see an Android device mirrored to a TV, if that means anything.
We are working on embedding the live stream of the event, but if we can’t, you can watch along with us here. Otherwise, we’ll be live blogging below with pictures and just as much fun. This should be a great event, just like last year’s.
Ready for CES? (more…)
Hopeful gamers looking to score a deal this holiday season should look at NVIDIA’s website, as the company has marked down the price of SHIELD by $50, bringing the grand total to $249.99. If you caught the DL Show on Wednesday, I personally claimed that SHIELD was the biggest bust of 2013, for the sole reason that it was priced too highly to catch anyone’s interest, and as a result it seems to have sold poorly.

This morning, NVIDIA announced a new software update for its mobile Android-powered game console, SHIELD. Over the course of its life, SHIELD has been receiving updates left and right it seems, from big bug fixes to major feature additions, such as the Gamepad Mapper and Console Mode update. In this newest update, Gamestream users will see a major improvement in graphics quality, as you can now stream your PC games in full 1080p at 60 FPS in Console Mode when using Ethernet. In addition, WiFi PC streaming has also been improved, allowing gamers to see more 60 FPS performance as well. (more…)

The deal changes depending on retailer, so we’ve listed a few out for you below. (more…)
