I see people keep talking about it just being a die shrunk X1. What I don't understand is how exactly a "die shrunk X1" is different than a Tegra X2 which is literally a Die Shrink of the X1 going from 20nm->16nm
The X2 uses Denver cores as it's primary processor type, which is NOT fully compatible with the A57/A53. It does have A57 cores, but those Denver cores would be a big block of wasted silicon.
It's also pascal versus maxwell on the graphics side.
