In the test results reported by WccfTech, the Tegra K1 benchmarked at 3.75 times faster than the Tegra 4. WccfTech details that the K1 seems to be faster than just about every low-power 'iGPU' (integrated GPU) and even some 'dGPUs' (discrete GPU). In the GFXBench score, not only does it score 2.5x better in graphics performance than the current cream of the Qualcomm crop, Snapdragon 800, but it is also more than twice as fast as the blazing Apple A7 chip in the new iPad Air. In addition, it scores a tad higher than Intel's new HD4400 graphics subset that comes with the Haswell processor line, which is an amazing feat in itself, given that K1 will find itself in slim and light mobile devices soon.
We had reported on the launch of the Tegra K1, as it being one of the most powerful chipset, which would make it even more powerful than the Xbox 360 or the Playstation 3 console. In the GFXBench score the Tegra K1 achieved a 60 fps result as opposed to the 27 fps at result of both the Apple iPad and the iPad mini with Retina both running the A7, G6430 chip. The Samsung Galaxy running the Snapdragon 800 on the Galaxy Note 3 achieved 24 fps. The only device that did beat the Tegra K1 was Nvidia's own GT 740M chipset that clocked 112 fps, but is notably a discrete GPU for laptops - it was running on the Toshiba Satellite S70-A-10f, coupled with Core i7-4700 MQ processor.
Tablets are becoming a popular platform for gaming, undermining Nvidia's core business of creating powerful chips that enhance the look of PC games. The company has had some success with its chips for mobile gadgets like smartphones and tablets, but has been overshadowed by Qualcomm Inc. The 192 GPU cores in the new chip dramatically contrast Nvidia's previous mobile SoC flagship, the Tegra 4, which had 72 graphics cores.
