Lenovo may be among the first companies to adopt NVIDIA’s newly announced Tegra K1 chip.
Using his official Weibo account, Lenovo’s Vice President revealed that the company’s upcoming 4K 50-inch smart TV will use the world’s fastest 200-core CPU + GPU. As far we know, aside from the Tegra K1 no other chip comes with so many cores, 192 of which are reserved for graphics. The best part is that the launch date of this smart TV is “just around the corner.”
Now we’re not sure whether this Lenovo TV set will be available in the West and we can only hope that will be the case. Moreover, we’re not sure just how the company plans to use all that processing power. One idea that comes to mind is to bundle some gaming service with every purchase; that could certainly set Lenovo TVs apart from those made by the likes of Samsung, LG and Sharp.
Finally, we want to believe that smart TV is just one/first piece of the puzzle for Lenovo, with next step involving launching a Tegra K1-powered tablet or perhaps a smartphone. Sounds good, don’t you think?
