Marvell debuts 1.2GHz ARMADA ARM CPUs

Posted on Wednesday, October 21 2009 @ 00:20:52 CEST by

Hexus reports Marvell has introduced the new ARM-based ARMADA processors, these chips have a top frequency of 1.2GHz and the company claims it has over 50 design wins.
The new chips are, perhaps predictable, being hailed as "game-changing" by Marvell and, on the crude measurement of clock speed, certainly catch the eye with a top frequency of 1.2 GHz. Additionally, Marvell is claiming over 50 design wins for ARMADA already.

Marvell apparently ships one billion chips per year, two-thirds of which run the ARM instruction set, making it the largest producer of ARM chips in the world. Marvell's ARM based processor operations are the product of an acquisition from, of all companies, Intel. Marvell purchased Intel's XScale division, which specialized in developing processors around the ARM instruction set (as opposed to x86) back in 2006.

"The ARMADA family delivers to mobile devices what skeptics once doubted could be done: fast, PC-caliber processing, full Internet experience, rich media including HD quality video and 3D graphics - all in lightweight form factors with long battery life," said Weili Dai, Marvell's co-founder and VP/GM of its consumer and computing Business Unit.
