There have been many leaks that a HTC manufactured Google Nexus tablet with a 8.9-ich screen isn’t too far away.

Now a new source has revealed the expected processing power of the rumoured next Nexus tablet.

A leaked CPU-Z screenshot by TKtechnews, claims that the Nexus tablet will be powered by a 64-bit Tegra K1 processor, fixed at clock speeds up to 2.5GHz and paired with 192-core Kepler graphics unit.

Upleaks has previously reported the Nexus 9 is rumoured to be using a 64-bit Tegra processor and is likely to integrate 4GB RAM.

Nvidia stated that Tegra K1 is the first SoC to support the new kepler graphics chip and is 1.5 times more efficient compared to other mobile GPUs whilst not draining the battery. The chip is capable of running the Unreal Engine 4, supports DirectX 11 and OpenGL 4.4.

Wi-Fi Certification:

The HTC Nexus tablet recently received Wi-Fi certification, according to a leaked document at Wi-Fi Alliance via BGR . The listing referred to a HTC tablet bearing model number HTC0P8210000 that will support Wi-Fi a/b/g/n and run Android L version noted as ‘LMP’ (Lemon Meringue Pie).

Other than this, the document does not reveal other information but the listing of Flounder, which is the codename of the Nexus 9 or Volantis.

Upleaks has suggested the HTC T1 will be released before the 9th October this year.

If it comes in 64GB, or even better 128GB models, this might actually convince me to upgrade from my Note 10.1!

A tablet manufactured by HTC and a phone by Motorola. This should be the best October and November yet!

This whole business of NVIDIA pretending that each shader us a “core” is pretty ridiculous.

Thing to note is that the wrong die pic is used above – the 64bit Denver K1 chip is a dual core, not a 4+1 32bit quad core. However the space taken up by the 64bit cores isn’t much bigger than 2 x 32bit cores. And they don’t take up much of the total die space. As a result, I wouldn’t be surprised to see a quad core 64 bit K1 chip before too long, with twice the CPU power of the above K1. I also wouldn’t be surprised if the K1 chip was thermally throttled quite often when all… Read more »

This looks insane. Utterly insane. Resistance… is… useless.
