With Intel and Samsung dominating much of the Chromebook market, there hasn’t been a lot of options out there for those who want something a little different, at least until now. The new Acer CB5 Chromebook looks set to take a different approach by using the new Nvidia developed Tegra K1 SoC.
The Chromebook offers up the Tegra K1 CPU with 4GB of RAM, a 32GB SSD and a 13.3 inch HD display. As well as the usual array of audio jacks, USB ports and an Ethernet port.
Since it was leaked in an Acer product listing the page has since been pulled, but the product images did remain and were quickly downloaded. The page said that the device would be available from August 1st, but there is no indication if this was only a place-holder, so we’ll have to wait for an official announcement for more details.
With no other commercial Tegra K1 devices on the market, it’s not known how fast the CB5 will be compared to rival offerings from Intel and Samsung, but giving the previous successes of Tegra, we have high hopes and expectations.
