From a variety of sources comes word of an NVidia iPad Mini clone that just slays everything now out there and everything that’s still to come.
The Tegra K1 is a monster of a chip that can run as high as 2.3Ghz with a GPU that has a jaw-dropping 192 cores.
This secret device — which could be a reference design that will probably be picked up in China first (as their prior 7″ tablet prototype was) — features a Retina-class screen, 2GBs of RAM, 16GBs of storage, and cameras better than any other clone: 4.8MP front and 7MP back.
Adding another layer of mystery to this is the fact it was rumored just last month that the long-delayed tablet from Xiaomi would use the Tegra K1 CPU [Google Translate]. The latest rumor is that Xiaomi might release their tablet next week, May 15th [Google Translate].
The Tegra K1 has been touted as running as high as the 43,000-range in AnTuTu. This could make it the highest-scoring CPU out there, beating even the upcoming Rockchip 3288.
Anyone who still hasn’t bought a next-gen iPad Mini clone — such as the iFive Mini 3GS — might want to wait just a little bit longer.
