NVIDIA Unveils Tegra K1 - Analyst Blog


NVIDIA Corp. ( NVDA ) recently launched the 192-core Tegra K1 mobile processor, powered by Keplar technology, which provides an enhanced gaming experience for users.

This new chip features next-gen PC gaming technologies, which enable PC and console game developers to build apps that can run not only on smartphones and tablets, but also on televisions, consoles and cars,. Moreover, this SoC (System on Chip) is available in two versions: a 32-bit version and a 64-bit version that deliver vivid graphics and faster experience for GPUs. Therefore, the adoption of Tegra K1 will boost NVIDIA's business, going forward.

With the launch of this CUDA-core Tegra K1, NVDA can maximize user experience by offering high performance computing (HPC) capabilities. Also, this will enable NVIDIA to increase its customer base and help in garnering additional revenues.

NVIDIA's Tegra chips are increasingly being used in Google Inc 's ( GOOG ) Nexus 7 and Microsoft Corp 's ( MSFT ) Surface tablets. Moreover, the introduction of the latest chip for the mobile market will curb its dependence on the PC market.

Apart from this, NVIDIA recently updated its software. The company's SHIELD portable gaming device will now enable gamers to stream PC games to their television sets in 1080p (high definition video). The current software update improves SHIELD's Gamepad Mapper feature, which will now allow any touch-based Android title to be played through SHIELD's analog controller inputs.

NVIDIA Corporation offers digital media processors and related software for a wide range of visual computing platforms. It is a worldwide leader in visual computing technologies and the inventor of the graphic processing unit or GPU.

NVIDIA's innovative product pipeline that consists of the recently introduced SHIELD and the upcoming mobile processor Logan Tegra 4 processors will boost top-line growth, going forward.

However, the company faces competition from companies like Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. ( AMD ), Intel Corporation ( INTC ) and QUALCOMM Inc. ( QCOM ). Also, higher operating expenses are expected to hurt profitability in the near term.

Currently, NVIDIA has a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold).
