Impressive Tegra K1 Demo Puts Last-Gen Consoles to Shame
Peter Donnell / 3 years ago
Mobile gaming is coming on in a big way recently and while I still find it a royal pain in the butt to try and play most games via touch screen, especially games like Grand Theft Auto, there have been many improvements. One of the biggest improvement for me is with devices such as the Nvidia Shield, designed to play Android games, but without the draw backs of a touch screen, and there are lots more devices like this cropping up each year.
On a technical side of things, the graphics hardware that is being installed into our smartphones, tablets and other mobile device is becoming incredibly powerful, allowing for some very pretty 3D graphics, high frame rates, UHD resolutions and a whole lot more. Nvidia are certainly making some big advances and as you can see in the video below, their TK1 graphic chip is able to push graphics that put most console games to shame.
The demo uses the same rendering pipeline as the full desktop edition of the engine which will be deployed on PC, Xbox One, and Ps4. Using Epics Unreal Engine 4 and some assets from the famous Samaritan Demo to create “Rivalry” a stunning rendering that uses the K1’s 192 CUDA cores with a speed of around 950 MHz.
