According to a leaked CPU-Z report, HTC’s upcoming Nexus tablet, codenamed Volantis, is set to be the first device on the market to feature Nvidia’s 64-bit Tegra K1 processor clocked at 2.5GHz. This revelation comes just days after renowned leaker, @Evleaks, took to Twitter to publicize his suspected specifications for the slate, which incidentally match up perfectly to the news we’re seeing today.


Google’s upcoming Nexus 9 tablet, made by HTC, could launch earlier than expected, according to one reliable tipster — which means Android L could make its public debut early, too. Recent reports have promised an unveiling during the second week of October, but we may not have to wait that long.


Nvidia’s latest chipset — the Tegra K1 — has been winning the company accolades from all reviewers because of its unparalleled GPU performance. However, instead of basking on its laurels, the company is already working hard on its next chip, a 64-bit version of Tegra K1 with two-custom “Denver” cores. 


Acer has already produced some of the best Chrome OS notebooks to date, but its latest Chromebook 13 — the first Chromebook powered by an NVIDIA processor — blows the rest right out of the water. Starting at just $279, it combines the super snappy Tegra K1 chip with a high-resolution display and up to 32GB of solid-state storage.

Google’s much-anticipated Nexus 8, manufactured by HTC, could well be the most impressive Android device to date. Not only is it expected to look good, but a recent specifications leak suggests it will have a super-speedy 64-bit NVIDIA Tegra K1 processor and 4GB of RAM, blowing every other Android-powered tablet right out of the water.
