NVIDIA Tegra K1 supports DirectX 12

Bright Side of News received confirmation from NVIDIA that the Tegra K1 SoC will support Microsoft's DirectX 12 API. The upcoming Tegra K1 also offers CUDA support, which means it effectively offers desktop features for mobile.
Now that we already know that DirectX 12 is running on Nvidia's desktop GPU hardware the next logical question is whether it'll run on their mobile hardware, which led to us asking them about Tegra K1. What this ultimately means is that Nvidia has a pretty good chance of landing the next iteration of Microsoft's surface tablet with the Tegra K1 as an update path for Microsoft. It will also mean that Nvidia will likely have one of the closest relationships with Microsoft in the development of DirectX 12 for mobile. As Microsoft's mobile strategy heats up and improves it will ultimately benefit their closest partners the best. However, Qualcomm is still Microsoft's sole partner on Windows Phone and there may be some friction between Qualcomm and Nvidia once Windows 9 starts to roll out next year as they will be both competing to be Microsoft's 'beloved'.
