We’d seen some early benchmarks suggesting that NVIDIA’s new Tegra K1 system on a chip would absolutely crush the performance of any other SoC on the market and now we’ve got some confirmation. Neowin has spotted some new benchmarks for the Tegra K1 and they’ve once again found that NVIDIA’s newest chipset blows every other chip out of the water. According to the benchmarks, there are two versions of the Tegra K1: A dual-core 64-bit version that’s been clocked at 3GHz and that scored a 43617 on AnTuTu’s benchmark and a quad-core version that scored a 43851 on AnTuTu.

How strong are these results? Consider that the next-highest SoC is Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 805, which scored 37,780 on AnTuTu. NVIDIA first announced the Tegra K1 at CES earlier this year and was hyped with the bold promise that it would be powerful enough to let you run games based on Unreal Engine 4 on your tablet. It goes without saying that we can’t wait to see Tegra K1-powered smartphones and tablets in action whenever they hit the market.
