NVIDIA Releases Next Generation Mobile Super Chip
LAS VEGAS, NV: NVIDIA, launches Tegra X1, its next generation mobile super chip with over one teraflops of processing power which delivers capabilities that open the door to unprecedented graphics and sophisticated deep learning and computer vision applications.
Tegra X1 built on NVIDIA Maxwell GPU architecture has rolled out only months ago for the gaming graphics card, the GeForce GTX 980. The 256-core Tegra X1 offers twice the performance of its predecessor, the Tegra K1, which is based on the previous-generation Kepler architecture.
It X1 supports all major graphics standards, including Unreal Engine 4, DirectX 12, OpenGL 4.5, CUDA , OpenGL ES 3.1 and the Android Extension Pack, making it easier for developers to bring PC games to mobile.
It will be featured in the newly announced NVIDIA DRIVE car computers. DRIVE PX is an auto-pilot computing platform that can process video from up to 12 onboard cameras to run capabilities providing Surround-Vision, for a seamless 360-degree view around the car, and Auto-Valet, for true self-parking. DRIVE CX being a complete cockpit platform powers the advanced graphics required across the increasing number of screens used for digital clusters, infotainment, head-up displays, virtual mirrors and rear-seat entertainment.
"We see a future of autonomous cars, robots and drones that see and learn, with seeming intelligence that is hard to imagine," says Jen-Hsun Huang, CEO and co-founder, NVIDIA. "They will make possible safer driving, more secure cities and great conveniences for all of us.
