1.5 Ghz Dual Core Mobile Processor By Texas Instruments

Recommended Posts

We are waiting for 1 Ghz Dual Core Nvidia Tegra 2 based mobiles and tablets Yet.

And Texas Instruments has unleased a new weapon already. 1.5 Ghz Dual Core Mobile Processor OMAP4440 SoC.



Texas Instruments has announced its latest mobile processor, the TI OMAP4440, a SoC packaging a pair of 1.5GHz ARM Cortex-A9 MPCore CPUs along with two ARM Cortex-M3 cores to power-efficiently offload time-critical and control tasks. Coupled with the POWERVR 3D graphics engine, that provides a quoted 1.25x increase in graphics performance (including 2x faster HD video playback, with support for 1080p60 and 3D stereoscopic 1080p) and a 30-percent cut in webpage loading times.

There's also support for 1080p video conferencing and gesture recognition, along with two 12-megapixel cameras operating in parallel. The latter will mean that devices based on the OMAP4440 – which could include smartphones or tablets – will be able to record Full HD 3D video. TI is betting big on video teleconferencing, with 720p HD video support for multi-chat with up to four other users, and native support for H.264, VP7, H.263, SVC and other formats.

TI expect the OMAP4440 to begin sampling in Q1 2011, with volume production in the second half of the year. It's pin-to-pin compatible with the company's OMAP4430, itself set to show up in commercial products in the first half of 2011 (and powering the TI Blaze developer tablet), offering a straightforward way for manufacturers to significantly boost performance.

Excellent. Only we must keep an eye on the juice it consumes. In any mobile app there is always a thin line between battery life and power!
