Texas Instruments (TI) took the wraps off of a new applications processor this week at Computex - The OMAP4470 was introduced at the latest addition to the OMAP 4 family, and it sounds like it will be a beast. The dual-core 1.8GHz chipset should handle mobile gaming with no problem while maintaining low power consumption at the same time. They’re expected to start sampling later this year and to start showing up in phones, tablets and such by the first half of 2012.
Some of the chipset features include:
- Dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 clock speeds up to 1.8 GHz per core
- 80% increase in Web browsing performance
- 2.5x boost in graphics functionality, via Imagination Technology’s POWERVR SGX544 core
- Up to 2x more layered imaging and video composition
- Simultaneous support for up to three HD screens, and up to QXGA (2048×1536) resolution
- A new, unique hardware composition engine
