Tegra 1 has 1 core
Tegra 2 has 2 cores
Tegra 3 has 4 cores
...
So will Tegra 11 have 1K cores ?

I would think that at some point the cuda cores and arm cores would kind of merge. That way you would either:
- have an arm core and multiple cuda cores in 1 unit with tegra 11 having maybe 100 units.
- have special cores that do the work of arm cores and cuda cores
