K1 is impressive in AnTuTu benchmark

During CES 2014, NVIDIA was showing off a new processor that fits into the Tegra line: the Tegra K1. This week, some benchmarks that are claimed to be from that chip have hit the web.
 
We already know most of the hardware specs on the K1, including the fact that the chip has 192 CUDA cores. The chip is a 32-bit quad-core unit with another version tipped that will have dual Denver 64-bit cores operating at up to 2.5GHz.
 
The K1 has a maximum clock speed of 2.3GHz (in quad-core configuration) and supports DDR3L and LPDDR3 memory up to 8GB. The chip will also support displays with resolution up to 3840 x 2160.
 
Benchmarks for the chip show what it was able to score on the AnTuTu running Android 4.4.2. The unknown device that was used to run the benchmark has a screen with 1920x1080 resolution and 2GB of RAM.
 
You can see the full results of the benchmarks in the images below:

The Tegra K1 should make for some impressive smartphones and tablets when they start coming to market; but NVIDIA first has to get on the ball with design wins.

That's complete nonsense. Phones need one full core for the real-time tasks of monitoring the cellular network. It's why you see substantial game performance boost from going to dual-core from single core on a phone, even for games that are single-threaded.

Not to mention that you've likely got other apps running in the background checking your email, getting facebook updates, etc.

Just because a *game* doesn't utilize four cores, doesn't mean the *phone* can't fully utilize them. (Remember that for mobile phone game benchmarks, they turn the radio off and they halt all other background apps).

If that was true, I wouldn't be able to do anything, but basic phone calls on my single core phone. Strangely enough, I can so a hell of a lot more than that..

I hope you do know a core can run any number of threads without a hitch as long the threads combined don't need more than 100% of a core's power. If you have two threads using 10% computing power each, they will happily run on a single core.
