    Ooh, Denver 2.

    Possibly the only really interesting CPU design out there atm, more details please if you can get them.

    Re: Nvidia Parker SoC features 256-core Pascal GPU

    I hope they have a different version coming without the car based stuff, for say a rev2.0 of the Shield TV. I want to see TWO of these chips in the next rev, along with a large fan (of course box that resembles xbox1 size) for far higher clocks, etc. I'm more than willing to pay $300-350 for a powerful android box, especially if it can multi-boot to other OS (linux/steamOS maybe?). Still waiting for an announcement of steamOS for ARM (get with it NV). I'd be super stoked if the box had a slot for a PCIE gpu later+spot for a 2nd HD (or SSD) later Maybe they can just take chips from the one here that have failed security stuff or something or maybe the security engine/safety engine take so little space it doesn't matter. Since Nintendo's unit is a tablet/handheld deal, no reason for NV to not up the ante on REV2.0 Shield TV boxes.

    I like the current model, but I want to see that on steroids before I buy Rev2 should be a FAR more capable box to woo more people. You can still sell a cheapo model (128GB SSD or something?), but make sure ALL are upgradable. PCIE gpu isn't a must for me, but I better be able to stick in a 2nd drive and hook an external bluray to it so I can quit buying new bluray players...LOL. They need to certify a few models so people know what to buy to get the bluray part done or sell a model at cost that works? Whatever. If you want to increase sales, offer more value.

    Nvidia claim this is the fastest ARM core

    That would be 1.5 16-bit TFLOPS, and ~750 GFLOPS in normal GPU terms.

    That's assuming that this Tegra GPU runs at around 1500 MHz as well.

    I'd take that CPU performance graph with a large pinch of salt...

    I wonder if they will actually enable the A57s in this design - they were never enabled in the previous Tegra due to a design fault.
