Thank you for making this Sunday January 5, 2014 PCper podcast, as I had to shovel the damn heavy and wet snow outside in the dark before the freezing temperature makes everything frozen on the damn ground here, in Toronto.

will you guys make deep analyst on tegra K1 architecture (both variant)?

You are going to have to go to anandtech to get a discription, that explains the seven way superscalar(execution pipelines, eg. ineterger, floating point, branch, other)of the Denver custom ARMv8 ARM ISA cores(when available), as well as read the reviews of the Arm refrence ARM A15 refrence cores. Nvidia is going to have to publish the denver processor data sheets/manuals, and Nvidia needs to do what Intel does with their ARK technical info web based processor informaion/developer resource websites, if it wants developers to utilize/develop for their "APU" type platforms. I really hate it when Nivida, and others release a new CPU/GPU product without providing links to the technical specifications on their webpage. Apple releases very little info on their custom designs, but Apple does not sale CPUs or GPUs on the open market, Nivida will have to be more forthcoming with their CPU part of the CPU/GPU equation if they want to attract open source development, and the Blender 3d, other open source applications that will be able to run on any platform that supports Linux/Linux variants and OpenGL! I would love to have a high resolution K1 denver tablet platform for using GIMP and Blender, that runs a full fat linux distro. Nivida must have discussed Denver and the K1 to some degree at the August 25-27, 2013, or previous few years' hot chips symposium, so maybe there is some research papers/presentations at that web site to give some indication of what may be in the Denver projects' custom ARMv8 ISA based cores(superscalar, and pipeline stages/depths, and number of integer, and floating point, SIMD, and other instructions executed per clock). If not publicly available, this information will probably leak out as the system development Hardware/software kits are usually shipped long before the hardware is released into the final consumer products.

More in depth K1 article/preview already up at anandtech website, CPU/GPU architecture is Anand Lal Shimpi's forte so go and read up, it always good!

We have an article up here: http://www.pcper.com/reviews/Mobile/NVIDIA-Tegra-K1-Kepler-meets-ARM-Project-Denver-Surfaces

It was not up as of the time of previous post, so yes, thank you, and do indicate if a previously posted analysis/post has been updated. I'll always read more than one websites' articles especially Ryan's and Anand's, as well as the EETimes(they have lots of posts from industry engineering professionals). Hopefully there will be more info on the Denver Cores released, and some of the posters on Anand's site are mistakenly assuming that the optimized for mobile K1 GPU cores with their, simplified for low power GPU core connection fabric/etc., will be the same exact Kepler cores used for any future desktop Descrete GPUs! The mobile versions will not be exactly the same, as desktop descrete GPUs always have more thermal design headroom. The mobile K1, and kepler descrete GPUs will look the same to any software, which is the best part of Nivida merging the mobile technology into the kepler based (full openGL on a mobile platform is GREAT). Nivida made no announcements about Maxwell, so its wait and see on that question.
