New Acer Chromebook has K1 Tegra processor and battery life up to 13 hours

At CES this year, Nvidia showed the world’s first Tegra K1 , SoC that has more processing power than the PS3 and Xbox 360, according to the tests provided by the company. He has 192 cores, as much of the GeForce GT 630 and 635 plates And, yes, it is a mobile processor.

However, Nvidia today announced that the SoC is present in such a notebook: the new 13-inch Chromebook from Acer. It has 2 GB or 4 GB of RAM, a 1366 × 768 pixels or Full HD, 16 GB or 32 GB storage (remembering that the Chromebook, everything is stored in the cloud) and only 18 mm thick.

For the Chromebook line, which usually has simple specifications, the processor promises to help in the execution of various activities at the same time without losing the performance and up to 13 hours of battery life, in addition to improved graphics – the post of ad highlights the arrival of Unreal Engine supports 4 and 5 Unity for Chrome OS besides the use for 3D view, for example, in education.

The curious thing is that the Chromebook line is reportedly facing “light” use, ie to work or surf the internet. Does the adoption of Tegra K1 also indicates the adoption of a change in strategy from Acer with this line?

The price, as always, is very competitive (at least out there): the simplest configuration model goes for $ 279; more advanced by 379.
