Nvidia’s Tegra K1 processor has already hit the market with Nvidia’s Shield Tablet and Xiaomi’s MiPad and according to the latest reports it will now start arriving with Chromebooks.
HP’s Chromebook 14 is set to be the second Chromebook to get Nvidia’s Tegra K1 chip after Acer recently unveiled a Tegra K1 powered notebook. HP’s Chromebook 14 will have a 14 inch 1366 x 768 display, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, a 3 cell battery and of course Nvidia’s Tegra K1 system on chip which includes a quad core ARM processor and 192 Kepler GPU cores. Nvidia’s power frugal Tegra K1 should be able to sustain better battery life two – around 12-14 hours seems likely.
Current pricing of HP’s Chromebooks equipped with Intel Haswell Celerons is around $299 so we should expect the Tegra K1 variant to be similarly priced if not slightly cheaper.
Expect more details soon.
