The NVIDIA Tegra X1 is almost as good as an Intel Core i3?

It is according to phoronix.com. Apparently Ubuntu can be installed on a NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV. But I don’t think you will get good video performance. So there wouldn’t be much point.

Power wise it might be better then the i3.

Intel might finally have a competitor. AMD is taking a long ass time to release new processors, which will probably still be slower then Intel. AMD is good for cheap people like me.
