Its been a year since we last saw a 64 bit processor hit mobile phones in the iPhone 5s, by the end of last year we also had promises by Samsung that they where working on a similar chip for their Galaxy line of devices but so far we have not seen any. Today NVIDIA has provided details about it’s new “Denver” Tegra K1, the first 64-bit chip designed specially for Android devices. The company has beat popular chip maker Qualcomm to the game with it’s new chip. It is basically a sibling to  the current 32-bit Tegra K1, and was designed for the highest single-core throughput possible, in a dual core ARMv8 package. And yes NVIDIA is currently testing this chip with the next iteration of Android we have all come to know as Android L on the new hardware.

The techsphere is also filled with rumors of an NVIDIA-powered 8-inch Nexus tablet, so there’s a good chance we just got a look at it’s processor.If you want more technical details about this new chipset, follow the link below.
