By the looks of it, Nvidia is doing some sort of launch next week, July 22nd. This actually lines up with a recently rumored release of an Nvidia Tegra K1 tablet, which is supposed to launch on the 29th according to Videocardz, but originally stated the 22nd (they changed the date since we last saw the rumor). It is rumored to have a full HD display, which is still quite desirable for mobile gaming and a separate game pad to

Jetson TK1

So last week, Nvidia launched a CUDA Vision Challenge that challenges developers to propose applications that might properly utilize the Jetson TK1’s embedded ‘Supercomputer’ capability for unique or novel purposes. Nvidia announced that they would be giving away 50 Jetson TK1 development boards to the top 50 proposals submitted by developers and the winners would be announced on May 20th.

But of course, the damage has already been done and Pandora’s box has been opened. However, there isn’t that much about this card that is really a mystery. The GTX Titan Z is expected to be a dual Titan graphics card, air cooled, that enables some of
