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.

RE: Blah. Nvidia pre-release benchmarks mean zero

No-one gives a fsck about absolute performance. You want AWESOME graphics performance --- buy an AMD FirePro and feed it 500W.

The issue is ALWAYS whether the performance comes at an acceptable power usage or not. The rumors are that this thing uses power in the tens of watts range to get these sorts of numbers. That sort of power usage makes it useless for phones, useless for tablets, useless for many (not all) laptops.

If the target markets are now (bulky) laptops and desktops, let's see it compared against chips that compete in that market. Seeing it compared against phone GPUS is as useless as telling me that a 4GHz i7 runs a lot faster than an A57. True, but irrelevant to anything.

They've already showed the K1 running on less than 1W (measured in real time with voltmeter) on stage in real-time running the Unreal 4 Tech Demo, i dunno what else you want.
