Samsung Introduces New Line Of Mobile Chips
Samsung recently released two 1-GHz ARM Cortex A8-based application processors aimed at providing higher performance for mobile devices, without raising power consumption, one of the major limiters in mobile device manufacturing. According to Samsung, the new chips will be capable of 3-D graphics rendering and high-resolution video support with very lower power requirements.
The chip in question for mobile devices like smartphones, is the S5PC110, featuring a 32KB data and 32KB instruction caches, and is equipped with a 512KB L2 cache, all on a 45-nanometer (nm) process. Dr. Kwang Hyun Kim, senior VP at Samsung said, “PC-level performance with lower power consumption will become mainstream requirements for advanced mobile devices. Samsung developed S5PC110 and S5PV210 application processors to satisfy these conflicting requirements to enable a new level of user experience not previously possible.” Which is another reason that both processors integrate a 1080p full HD codec engine that supports 30fps full HD video playback and recording.
Currently no devices are scheduled to include these new processors, but they will definitely find their way into market quickly if they can truly offer the video abilities on such low power requirements.

It would be sweet if Intel started building mega processor chips for smart phones.
Imagine a Blackberry storm running a Intel core 2 i7, 2.0Ghz. That device would take you to wonderland and back.
aahhhhhh, that would be sweet.
..........SHAKE N BAKE..........
