TI Positions Multi-Core OMAP 4 Processor for Mobile

Texas Instruments introduced its latest OMAP4470 applications processor aimed at ultra thin laptops, tablets and other mobile computing devices.

The multicore OMAP4470 processor boasts clock speeds up to 1.8 GHz, an 80 percent increase in Web browsing performance over current solutions and increased memory bandwidth. It promises a 2.5x boost in graphics functionality provided by a POWERVR SGX544 core from Imagination Technologies in operating systems such as Android, Linux and the next version of Microsoft Windows.

"Superior mobile computing relies on a user experience that dwarfs all others. Fast and crisp Web browsing, HD and liquid UIs, support for the latest applications—these are the elements consumers judge and buy their devices on. The OMAP4470 processor delivers the maximum experience possible with an unmatched, power-efficient architecture," said Remi El-Ouazzane, vice president, OMAP platform business unit, TI.
