Marvell Armada chip in Nintendo 3DS?

Posted on Thursday, August 26 2010 @ 07:00:55 CEST by


Engadget reports there may be a Marvell Armada chip in Nintendo's 3DS handheld console, as Marvell co-founder Sehat Sutardja revealed to investors that the chip will be in a new gaming platform from a major customer:
"Approximately 15% of the sequential increase [in quarterly sales] was due to the initial production revenue from our ARMADA application processors, primarily as a result of a major customer preparing to launch a new gaming platform," he told investors in a conference call last week, which roughly translates to "We just sold a load of processors for a new game console, yo" if our business-speak is correct. While there's absolutely nothing connecting this transaction to Nintendo's 3DS (which was confirmed to have a Pica200 GPU), we honestly can't think of a single other game platform slated to launch anytime soon -- so don't be surprised if there's a quad-core Armada 600 under that variably-stereoscopic hood.
