Carrying password Denver, this embedded processor technology called Dynamic Code Optimization in it. So before relying main RAM, Tegra K1 can save the first command to be executed in the cache memory is 128 MB which has.

“Dynamic Code Optimization optimizes frequently used applications at runtime are solid. This was possible thanks to 128 MB of main memory cache has. Once stored in the main memory cache, the processor can quickly take the required instructions each time you want to execute applications often used, “said Nvidia as quoted from Phone Arena, Wednesday (13/08/2014).

Thanks to these technologies, Denver was then claimed Nvidia will be able to provide high performance style PC for users, especially on Android-based devices that do require a fairly large resource.

Nvidia called Tegra K1 expect much at 64 bits. In addition to the way the PC-style offers high performance, also super low consumption as well as mobile processors.

Story of the Birth and Triumph Walkman

iPod may be the most popular digital music player. But before Apple’s music devices exploded, first there is a Walkman that many referred to as one of the most legendary gadgets. What does the story of his birth?
