Samsung Releases 1GHz CPU for Mobiles
Samsung and Intrinsity jointly announced the Hummingbird CPU which is based on the ARM® Cortex™-A8 processor architecture in 45 nanometer (nm) Low Power (LP), low leakage process technology. It is the fastest processor in the industry.
The processor is almost twice as powerful as the iPhone 3GS and Samsung OMNIA HD processors. It is also extremely power efficient and utilises a minimum supply voltage of 1V.
The processor will unlock new standars of products in both mobiles and others. We can expect mobile phones with better hardware allowing features such as HD Recording and HD Playback.
The Toshiba G1 is also equipped with a 1GHz Snapdragon processor and it is known to be quite powerful. We will have to wait and see what this processor can do once it gets implemented in devices.
