Of course, Surface has had a pretty tough time in the market thus far, but it's still a young product. The Tegra K1, which boasts 192 Kepler graphics cores and a re-engineered CPU, was one of the highlights of CES 2014. And as it turns out, Microsoft may be high on the list of companies to receive it once Surface 3 production begins. It's being reported that the next-gen Surface, as well as a potential "Surface Mini," would rely on the K1 inside, with Windows 8.1 being the OS onboard.
It's still too early to tell if the whispers are going to come to fruition, but it certainly makes sense. Surface as a brand news to make a fairly big splash, and we can't think of too many ways to make a bigger one than to grab NVIDIA's latest silicon innovation and run full steam ahead.
