Samsung was at this year’s CES in a BIG way! They have advertisements on just about any of the many shuttle buses circling the Las Vegas Convention Center, they had ads all over the Convention Center itself, and that got the location into trouble, as the ads announced their releases before the actual press event. At the press event, Samsung announced a new Samsung Note Pro 12.2, three new Galaxy Tab Pros—coming in the sizes of 8.4, 10.1, and 12.2 inches—and the Samsung Galaxy Camera 2.

Nvidia has officially brought an end to the “cores race” in two ways with the release of the Tegra K1. By releasing a device with “192 cores,” Nvidia not only wins in the marketing game, but they also make the numbers game a joke. Ultimately, it’s not about the number of cores. Rather, it’s about the power of the processor. But marketing numbers aside, the Tegra K1 is very powerful.
