Tegra X1 Delivers Stunning Performance On Ubuntu Linux

The crew at Phoronix has put NVIDIA's Tegra X1 to the test running Ubuntu Linux. I don't want to spoil the review but they used words like "exciting" and "stunning" when talking about performance.

NVIDIA's Tegra X1 64-bit ARM SoC running (non-Android) Linux is a beast! I was given access to a SHIELD Android TV that was configured to run Ubuntu Linux, which has led for some exciting benchmarks. In some workloads, the Tegra X1 comes up just shy of an Intel Core i3 "Broadwell" system. The Tegra X1 has me very excited about the future of ARMv8 hardware on Linux and NVIDIA's continued Tegra advancements.
