This means, your phone would be able to run heavy graphics games better than your consoles.Apart from the 32 bit ARM processor version, the chip will also come in a 64 bit variant with the Nvidia’s processor from its Denver project.

The monstrous chip would deliver visuals at a 4K UltraHD resolution of 4096×2160. It will support maximum memory of 8GB with a 40 bit address extension. It is not announced when this chip will be on devices but it is said that near the end of 2014, devices would start showing up with K1. Till then keep wondering how much it would cost you!
