CES 2014: Nvidia Is Bringing Unreal 4 To Mobile Device With Their New Chip
This week is all about the Consumer Electronics Show, or CES, and Nvidia has kicked off proceedings with a press conference at the event, showcasing some of the new chips they are planning to bring to consumers over the course of 2014. Unsurprisingly, Nvidia took the stage to announce a new mobile chip that will bring about the “next-gen” of mobile. Or so you could say.
Nvidia revealed the Terga K1, which steps things up from the companies Terga 4, a chipset that powers the Nvidia PC companion, the Shield. The new K1 features an incredible 192 cores (yes, 192 on a mobile chip) and is said to bridge the gap between mobile and console gaming even further. If that doesn’t immediately convince you, then news that Epic will bring Unreal Engine 4 to the K1 should, as that means the new engine will be supported on smartphones and tablets lucky enough to have the K1 under the hood.

Nvidia also says the K1 is more than twice as powerful as Apple’s A7 chip, which features in the new iPhone 5s.
The Terga K1 will come in two different flavours, which actually feature a bit more than minor differences. The first to release sometime in the first half of this year will be the quad-core 32-bit system-on-a-chip based on ARM’s Cortex A15 CPU architecture. Later in the year Nividia will release a 64-bit dual-core “Super Core CPU.”
Nvidia has yet to announce any hardware that will feature the Terga K1 just yet, but the company has said that the chip will feature in tablet, smartphones, game consoles and even cars by the end of June. Good news for Android fans everywhere then.
