Initially believed to operate at 2.5GHz max, the Nvidia K1 benchmarks revealed that the dual-core chipset is now capable of running at up to a massive 3GHz! Even the Snapdragon 800’s and the 805’s are made to eat humble pie by the K1 SoC if you go by the benchmarks that we’ve come across.
Dual-core variant of the NVIDIA K1 scored a mammoth 43617 points on the AnTuTu benchmarking app whereas the quad-core version make mockery with 43851 points on the chart. This is even more impressive when you consider scores of other most popular chipsets; the Snapdargon 801 (36469 points) and the Snapdragon 805 (37780 points). This amounts to a difference of greater than 6000 points! For reference, the uber-hot octa-core MediaTek MT6592 scores 26874 and 30217 in its 1.7GHz and 2.0GHz avatar respectively.
What’s unfortunate is that there’s no word on what device it was which got benchmarked; all we know is that the device features an FHD resolution and packs a 2GB and 32GB on RAM and storage respectively, among a few other minor details including imaging hardware (13 mega-pixel/2 mega-pixel).
