Texas Instruments' OMAP 5 Processors Range Up to 2GHz
Texas Instruments today debuted the new OMAP 5 mobile processor platform. The new family of processors uses 28nm processing, which delivers performance and power boosts. TI says the new chips include two ARM Cortex-A15 MPCores and two ARM Cortex-M4 processors. These combined with dedicated graphics processors mean that the OMAP 5 processors can support up to three high-rez displays and four cameras at a time, as well as 1080p HD video capture/playback, USB 3.0 OTG, and advanced full-body and multi-body motion gestures for gaming (both short range and long range). The chips will be sampling in the second half of 2011, and Texas Instruments expect them to reach devices in the market by the second half of 2012.
