Tegra K1: impressive benchmark!

Tegra K1

Last week in Las Vegas, al Consumer Electronic Show (CES), Nvidia presented its new chip Tegra k1 as a great innovation in terms of mobile graphics. Today you can take a look at the first benchmarks and, therefore, at what the chip is able to do!

We already know, thanks to Nvidia, that the chip is able to perform U, which already makes the chipset a cut above other competitors. But how does it behave in more "objective" tests?
Toms Hardware ran benchmarks of the Tegra K1 on a Lenovo Thinkvision 28, an all-in-one Android powered all-in-one PC, and showed the results at CES.
It is necessary to underline two things before analyzing the tests. First of all, the Tegra K1 was not running at full capacity because Lenovo ran a underclocked from 2.3GHz to 2.0Ghz. Secondly, the Thinkvision 28 is a machine with an 4k display from 28 inches and the display of anything absorbs a lot of processing power.

Given these assumptions, we see the chip as it behaved!

Compared to the Snapdragon 800 (Nexus 5), the Apple A7 (iPhone 5s) and its predecessor, the Tegra 4 (Tegra note 7), the Tegra k1 did better in the test with Futuremark 3D. The Tegra K1 has "turned" the 25% better in the GPU Graphics and CPU overloads than the A7, its "closest" competitor.

Regarding the test with Kishonti GFXBench, the Tegra K1 has obtained in the tests with off-screen almost a double score compared to that of its main competitor, Apple A7. Turning instead to tests with "screen turned on" the Tegra K1 has achieved lower scores than its competitors, but this is obviously due to the mad resolution of Thinkvision.
Probably always because of the high resolution, even the tests performed with Antutu were not at the same levels as the other texts.
