I was pretty impressed what what I read about NVIDIA's Tegra K1 processor at CES 2014, but it looks like the new SoC will be kicking some serious benchmark ass when it hits.

Some leaked benchmarks involving Lenovo's ThinkVision 28, which is powered by the Tegra K1 SoC, have leaked. These leaked benchmarks are using Futuremark's 3DMark, where the Tegra K1 SoC just dominates the competition. Keep in mind that the ThinkVision 28 was actually clocked at just 2GHz, and not the 2.3GHz that NVIDIA claims the Tegra K1 can be operated at.

Other benchmarks suggest that NVIDIA's Tegra K1 processor can also beat an Intel Haswell-powered notebook with integrated graphics. This is a big deal, as a Haswell-powered notebook will chew up much more power than an SoC. It looks like NVIDIA is onto a big, mobile winner here, folks.
