Linux on ARMBesides announcing the next-gen Pascal GPU family, NVIDIA just announced the Jetson TK1 DevKit... Already I have put in an order for this ARM development board with likely more on the way in being super-excited about the performance potential of this sub-$200 ARM Linux platform.

The Jetson TK1 is NVIDIA's first development board built around the wonderfully fast Tegra K1 SoC. The System-on-a-Chip packaged within the the TK1 DevKit features four ARM Cortex-A15 cores plus NVIDIA's companion core, but what makes the Tegra K1 so special is it's Kepler-based graphics core that is super-powerful and a huge upgrade over earlier Tegra graphics -- or any other ARM SoC graphics for that matter. I tried out the Tegra K1 last week in some reference tablets and found the K1 to be a wonderful experience and making things even better is NVIDIA contributing to Nouveau the Tegra K1 support...
