Announced at CES. NVIDIA Tegra X1 "mobile super chip" The X1 is the first mobile chip to achieve a teraflop of computing power. That makes it just as fast as the world's fastest supercomputer in 2000. It's basically the same Maxwell GPU architecture for PCs, which the company announced in the fall brought to mobile.

Tegra X1 packs in an eight-core 64-bit Denver CPU and 256 Maxwell GPU cores. Altogether, it should deliver around twice the performance of last year's Tegra K1 mobile chip.

The X1 is something meant for smartphones and tablets, power efficiency is key. Huang pointed out that it was able to run the Unreal Engine 4 "Elemental" demo using just 10 watts of power. A year ago, the Xbox One needed 100 watts to run Elemental. And over two years ago, a leading Nvidia GPU had to burn 300 watts to run it.

Awesome, simply awesome.

With this kind of horse power (a trillion horses) there's an awful lot of crap left behind on the road. :)
