Nvidia claims 64-bit Denver chip will outperform Apple’s A7

Apple pioneered the use of 64-bit processors in smartphones, but Nvidia claims its 64-bit Denver chip will be even faster when it appears in devices later this year. Nvidia shared a few more details about Denver at the Hot Chips conference in Silicon Valley on Monday. It’s calling it “the world’s first 64-bit ARM processor for Android.” Denver will be used in a 64-bit version of Nvidia’s Tegra K1 chip. It will have four Denver CPU cores and 192 Kepler graphics cores, which Nvidia says will provide PC-like performance for laptops, tablets and high-end smartphones. Like Apple’s A7 chip, Denver is based on the ARMv8-A architecture.
