While the Tegra line of mobile processors has used the 32-bit ARM Cortex line of CPU IP cores to date, NVIDIA announced back in 2011 that it had taken an architecture license for the 64-bit ARMv8 instruction set and was building a custom ARM core. The result is Project Denver. The company had been quietly building a design team to chart its own unique path in CPU design prior to the announcement. NVIDIA (finally) gave the outside world the first peek at Project Denver’s architecture at Hot Chips 26.
