ARM prepping 2GHz dual-core Cortex-A9

Posted on Thursday, September 17 2009 @ 00:05:56 CEST by

TC Mag reports ARM is working on dual-core Cortex-A9 processors with clock frequencies of 2GHz or even higher.
The upcoming dual core Cortex-A9 hard macros will share a common seven-power domain, dual-NEON technology configuration supporting SMP (symmetrical multiprocessing) operating systems with up to 8MB of L2 cache memory and will be delivered with all scripts, vectors and libraries required to integrate the macro directly within any SoC device.

Since they aren't x86 parts, the 2GHz+ Cortex-A9 processors can't be used to run Windows but they will work with Android and other open source operating systems so they could be used for full-on netbooks that compete with Linux-based Atom-powered models.
