Texas Instruments today announced the OMAP4470, a new dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor that offers up to 1.8GHz per core. Texas Instruments says the main benefits of this processor are an 80% increase in Web browsing performance; 2.5 times the graphics capabilities; double the imaging and video layering; and support for up to three HD screens running at the same time at resolutions as high as QXGA (2048x1536). Texas Instruments says the OMAP4470 is ideal for operating systems such as Android and is just as power efficient as its predecessors. The chip will sample in the latter half of 2011, with devices expected to become available during the first half of 2012.
