Nvidia is one of the companies that held its keynote today at CES in Las Vegas, and the highlight of the keynote was the company’s upcoming mobile processor – the Tegra K1.

The chip was personally introduced by the company’s CEO, Jen Hsun Huang. The Tegra K1 is designed to be the successor of the Tegra 4 chip and features a 192-core GPU based on the Kepler architecture, which was initially designed for desktop and notebooks.

Based on the demo done during the keynote, the K1 chip blows its competition out of the water in terms of graphics performance and providing support for Direct X11, Unreal Engine 4 and OpenGL 4.4. Moreover, the chip also offers real-time computing, global illumination, higher dynamic range and life-like rendering.

The Tegra K1 will be offered in two versions, a 32-bit option with a 2.3GHz “4+1” A16 CPU and a 64-bit version with a 2.5GHz dual-core Denver CPU.
