Now just showing us around this dilapidated subway station.
To show lighting, graphics quality
These little tiny details are what increases the production value of games, Huang says
So many things, attention to detail that they don't have to do, Huang says. But they want to do
On to another demo. A game that's kind of a cartoon. We're looking at a living room with a couch, table, chair, light, rug, etc.
Now that apartment has been changed to look more alive. Physically based rendering is used, Huang says
The second technology is global illumination. Everything is a light source, light is bouncing around the environment, Huang says
You're seeing soft shadows everywhere, Huang says
The room is another example of Unreal Engine 4
And now we're seeing an Unreal Engine game demo.
Game that runs on a high-end PC or game console today
Looks like we're in a desert/pyramid location. You can switch between different characters such as wizards, etc.
Player has to figure out puzzles, such as how to aim a laser at a door to open it.
Tegra K1. Unreal Engine 4. Next-generation graphics on a mobile device for the very first time, Huang says
If we compare Tegra K1 to a couple other well known systems, PS3 and Xbox 360, the consoles are based on last gen graphics. Tegra GPU and CPU has much higher horsepower than chips in those consoles. And runs at 5W
If you were to compare Tegra K1 to another platform, Apple A7. TK1 is almost 3 times the platform on a benchmark running last gen computer graphics capability, Huang says
When consider current gen graphics tech, we're so ahead at this point, Huang says
I really would like to focus on one surprise. Tegra K1 is the world's first 192 core processor. But I have one surprise for you.
Tegra K1 comes in two versions. One is quad core A15. Anoither version is based on our Denver CPU.
I've been talking to you about Denver for some time. It's a full custom CPU. Based on ARM's V8 64 bit.
Designed to be very high performance, single threaded
Tegra K1 will also come with dual-core Denver
NOTE - This is earlier than Nvidia said Denver would come.
Huang says Tegra K1 with Denver has been back a few days. Says, what the heck, let's give it a try. If she falls on her face, trips up while she's introducing herself to you, let's cut her some slack.
Now we're starting a demo of Tegra K1 with Denver. Android OS running on Tegra K1
NOTE - Nvidia was one of the first chipmakers to talk about 64 bit processing, which allows the use of more intensive applications and is standard on PCs. Huang announced Denver a few years ago at CES, but Nvidia hasn't had much to say about it since. Now many rivals are coming out with 64 bit. First was Apple with the A7. Qualcomm also has it, etc.
Not sure when Tegra K1 with Denver dual cores actually comes out.
The version of Tegra K1 running on a quad-core A15 CPU only runs 32 bit.
