    TI announces OMAP 5: two high-performance and two low-power cores, devices next year


    We're still waiting for the first OMAP 4 devices to hit the market, but TI's planning ahead -- way ahead -- with its announcement today of the OMAP 5 platform that really kicks things into high gear. The headline feature would be the inclusion of two Cortex-A15 cores, each running at up to 2GHz; Cortex-A15 is the fastest architecture ARM has announced to date, featuring performance roughly 50 percent better than Cortex-A9 at the same clock speed. What's more, there are another two Cortex-M4 processors along for the ride, ready to take over less intensive tasks at much lower power consumption to improve device responsiveness. The platform can support up to four cameras operating at the same time, offer 3D playback, recording, and 2D upsampling to 3D at 1080p resolution, and control up to 8GB of RAM. The chips start sampling to device manufacturers in the second half of this year with retail devices expected in the second half of 2012.

    At this development pace, Intel and AMD better sleep with their eyes open. Seriously. Just two years ago we were still on ARM11, and now we're on dual-core Cortex A9 models.

    Having the X and a few other devices with TI processors, I can say TI knows how to make quality processors. I wonder how the omap 5 will compare against the upcoming tegra 4 processors. With the low power consumption that's going to be utilized by the omap processor, I hope the tegra 4 has something similiar.
