NVIDIA K1 mobile chip vs PS3, Xbox 360 claims

If you thought that mobile graphics by NVIDIA with the Tegra 4 chip were impressive, you haven’t seen anything yet. At CES 2014, the company has just unveiled the NVIDIA K1 mobile CPU – said to be more powerful than chips featured inside the PS3 and Xbox 360.

That is quite a statement, considering the quality of games such as Metal Gear Solid 4, The Last of Us, Gran Turismo 6 and GTA V. However, NVIDIA are pushing the boundaries of mobile gaming every day it seems and now we’re pleased to bring you a demo, offering a taster of what the K1 chip can do.

As CES 2014 is ongoing, we expect to get the full technical capabilities of the K1 chip soon. In the meantime though, watch the teaser video below to see some amazing demonstrations – especially the Unreal Engine 4 reflections demo which is running specifically on the K1 chip.

That reflections demo looks unreal quite frankly – remember that this will be possible on future Android and iOS tablets this year. Now it doesn’t seem too farfetched when NVIDIA tout this chip as being more powerful than the PS3 and Xbox 360.

What do you think about this upcoming processor for mobile devices? Amazing how far technology has progressed since Angry Birds.
