NVIDIA reveals second Tegra K1 with 64-bit support, dual 2.5GHz Denver CPUs

Ever since the introduction of Apple’s A7 chipset on the iPhone 5s, 64-bit has become somewhat of a buzzword for manufacturers like Qualcomm, NVIDIA, Samsung and MediaTek. The former has already followed in Apple’s footsteps with 64-bit support on the Snapdragon 410, a SoC destined for budget devices and emerging markets, but we were anxiously awaiting word on NVIDIA’s next-gen aspirations at tonight’s press conference. And now we have it — the company just announced a second version of the Tegra K1 introduced earlier, this time with a dual-core 2.5GHz Denver CPU (yes, that Project Denver) and 64-bit support. We’re still waiting to hear specific availability, but NVIDIA tells us to expect more details in the coming months, so the extra boost in performance will require a bit of patience.
