Nvidia introduced Tegra X1 mobile superchip with 256 GPU cores


Nvidia has recently introduced the Tegra X1 mobile superchip which based on 64-bit technology with 256-core of GPU. Based on Maxwell architecture, the Tegra X1 supports for 4K video at 60Hz, energy efficient and provides high performances like high-end PCs and gaming consoles.

If you compared the Tegra X1 to Tegra K1 and Apple A8, then the Tegra X1 has better performances than both Apple A8 and Tegra K1.

Nvidia Tegra X1 Technical Specifications


The Tegra X1 supports all major graphics standards, such as DirectX 12, OpenGL 4.5, Unreal Engine 4, CUDA, Android Extension Pack and OpenGL ES 3.1.

Tegra X1’s technical specifications include:

  • Based on Maxwell with 256-core GPU
  • 8 CPU Cores (4x ARM Cortex A57 + 4x ARM Cortex A53)
  • 1.3-Gigapixel of camera throughput
  • Performs 4K video at 60 fps
  • 20nm process


With this introduction, we think the Tegra X1 will be implemented to devices in the fall of this year soon.
