NVIDIA’s 64-bit “Project Denver” chip, which was announced alongside the 32-bit Tegra K1, has been caught at AnTuTu benchmarks and its results are impressive, to say the least. What’s more, we’re talking about the dual-core variant rather than the one that boasts four cores!
Nevertheless, even with two cores the Denver managed to score impressive 43,851 points. That’s almost 10,000 points more than Snapdragon 800, 7,000 more than Snapdragon 801 and 6,000 more than what the upcoming Snapdragon 805 managed to yield. On the other hand, when put against 32-bit Nvidia Tegra K1 prototype SoC that has been showcased at CES, the 64-bit unit scored about 200 points more overall.
It is important to note that the chip which was tested on AnTuTu was clocked at 3GHz, whereas the first 64-bit K1 chip is expected to be clocked at up to 2.5 GHz. So the real-life device may have a bit lower scores though they’ll still manage to score more than phones and tablets with Qualcomm chips.
Now it’s all about waiting for the second half of the year when first devices rocking this powerful SoC will be out. We’re looking forward to see not one but multiple vendors launching their “K1 units.” More to come, obviously.
