Sounds like Apple and NVidia has discovered something that ARM and Qualcomm hasn't.
But what's the power draw?
Haha.. The K1 does exactly what the A8 does. Utilizes fewer, but much more potent cores.
When the A8 beats the 801/805, Android fanboys goes "PFFFT! Cheating. Apple's stuck in 2012! Dual-core? HAHA!"
When the K1 does it? Well, then it's fine.
K1 is the most awesome SoC this year, without doubt.
K1 > A8 > S805
It's expected to get even faster once it gets updated to Android L and apps start being optimized for it.
Not mind blowing as i thought! Don't know why nvidia made such a big deal about it! And stuff like pc performance bla bla bla ? But this is Greek bench! We most wait for others ;)

That's how you do it.
No silly Octa core or quad core needed to become the performance king.
Just wait until the GPU benchmark is being revealed.
Shock and awe!
