ARM Unveils 2GHz Capable Cortex-A9 Dual Core Processor For Smartphones and MIDs


ARM announced today the development of two Cortex-A9 MPCore hard macro implementations for the TSMC 40nm-G process, enabling silicon manufacturers to have a rapid and low-risk route to silicon for high-performance, low-power Cortex-A9 processor-based devices.

The speed-optimized hard macro implementation will enable devices to operate at frequencies greater than 2GHz.

The dual core hard macro implementations are the result of ARM’s significant investment in advanced physical IP development in unison with processor and fabric IP technology, and leading-edge implementation flows from the EDA industry. Advanced physical IP techniques have enabled critical circ... .. .

when will we see this implemented in smartphone's?
I think they released their A8 1GHz about 4 years ago and i've only seen it used in the past year.

Apple unlikely wont lol. I dont think maemo supports dual core, only symbian and os x i think.. I dont know if any1 can clarify. Mayb, and thats a big mayb, we will be seeing this monster in s4 devices.
